Like carnival lights

Setting a hundred moods

Mysterious and lovely

Especially for two

And the rides go up and down

Roller coasters and merry-go rounds

Thatís not us


I know it has only been five days

But Iíve got to say it

If the disapproving glances and whispers havenít shown me

Nothing ever will


At the top of the Ferris wheel you told me

How much you hate good byes

And by this time tomorrow youíd be

Gone with all the rides


So Iíll just close my eyes

Hold on tight

Listen to the music

And enjoy the ride

I see love

Burning brightly

If only for a little while

Like carnival lights
