Carousel
Lyrics
CAROUSEL

Some things are tough to explain
Like living through déjà vu
I've been in need of a change
From going in circles with you

We start and don't stop
But I need to step off
I'm no longer feeling that well
We keep spinnin' round, always up, always down
Baby I must take care of myself
But I'm trapped on this carousel

It's easy to live for hellos
But so hard to love with goodbyes
I'm trying my best to let go
And leave this emotional ride

We start and don't stop
But I need to step off
I'm no longer feeling that well
We keep spinnin' round, always up, always down
Baby I must take care of myself
Yet I'm trapped on this carousel

I once felt alive on love's merry-go-round
But hearts start to ache without solid ground

We start and don't stop
But I need to step off
I'm no longer feeling that well
We keep spinnin' round, always up, always down
Baby I must take care of myself
Still I'm trapped on this carousel
