lyrics

The carousel collapsed upon itself
And I’m staring at this mess
On a bench I sit and wave goodbye to me

As I am pulled farther away
I make a pact – just for today
And I’ll believe that I am free

But I don’t want to go
But I know I can’t stay
Looks like I can’t play anymore

And I know I should know
What it means to be there
But you know I’m still here
Afraid to just go.

And the music plays the same sad song
And I admit that I am drawn to
Days gone by instead of what could be

And I’m still farther away
Stuck on evanescent yesterdays
While the others are so free

But I don’t want to go
But I know I can’t stay
Looks like I can’t play anymore

And I know I should know
What it means to be there
But you know I’m still here
Afraid to just go.

But I don’t want to go
But I know I can’t stay
Looks like I can’t play anymore

And I know I should know
What it means to be there
But you know I’m still here
Afraid to just go.

The carousel collapsed upon itself
And I sat there staring at the same old mess
On a bench I sit as I wave goodbye to me
