Track Name: Carousel
Turning tides are rolling in again
Some things change, and some things never will
I've been trying hard to reach you
As the carousel turns to leave you

Watching all their faces
Hiding their disgraces
Disappointments, broken dreams and let downs
Tuning in to what's inside their heads

Opening our doors again
It could have been a beautiful friendship
You have to take the open hand
When it's offered it's a wonderful thing
Please enjoy your time on the carousel

Weather vanes are turning east again
Soon we will leave this place, nothing lasts forever
I've been driving far to meet you
As the carousel turns to greet you

What if I wasn't here?
If I just disappeared?
It's the worst I feared
An empty space now
