Merry-Go-Round

What can I do
When you’re on your merry-go-round
But stand by and listen to the happy music
Who can I be
When you’re spinning round and round
but stand by and worry about you
about us, about life
Where can I look
When you’re dizzy and dumb and grinning
but to my lover
and to myself and to another
And when you finally stand firm on the
ground
You look around
And I am nowhere to be found,
Oh when you finally stand firm on the ground
Look around
And I will be nowhere to be found.
