Waves of Adrenaline: Music

At the Fair

At the Fair

The sun goes down, the lights come up.  Gates open wide

The Midway calls, second thoughts, I'm at the end of the line

This seat is cold beneath me

No harness in sight

I’m lifted backward into the night

 

My courage thin, I’m holding tight.  I’m not ready to fly

It swoops me up again and throws me to the sky

I’m at the top again

I close my eyes tight

I’m lifted backward into the night

 

The fortune wheel clatters on, a gambler’s prayer                                    

I’m rising one more time. Wishes in the air

I’m at the top again

Lights gleaming bright

I lift my arms into the night

 

I’m at the top again

Packed my bags right

I cast my shadow into the night.
