Song lyrics- The Malfunction Room

Rachelle On a Carousel

You're gonna find out about this life
You know we all do at some time
but you are a child and I know
you will find your peace of mind
somewhere in the beauty of your innocence
or in the pain when that innocence dies
Watching you go 'round on the carousel
brought a little tear to my eyes.

Like each child that took the ride
and rode the pony goin' 'round
you felt the breeze upon your face
you heard the music and the sound
of laughter as it filled the air
with a strange expression of surprise
watching you go 'round on the carousel
brought a little tear to my eyes.

So enjoy the ride while you may
for we are only here today
and tomorrow we must be gone
There are others waiting for the ride
and you and I must stand aside
though sometimes the carousel breaks down
life just keeps on moving on.

So in twenty or thirty years from now
you may have children of you own
I'll wish them well as I have with you
in this world were not alone
There are millions more just like yourself
we walk that same old tired ground
I'll remember you forever on that carousel
going 'round and 'round and 'round
.
