lyrics

You’ve got no quarter for the carousel
So you hang around and listen to the barkers yell
And all the boys with whiskey going straight to hell
Change jingling in their pockets like the ringing of a bell

You blink your eyes just one at a time
‘Cause you’ve got no business on the wild side
you can’t beat the joker with a pair of fives
and anyone that tells you different is just feeding you lies

chorus
It’s this fire I’ve been breathing
It’s gonna be the end of me
And you can lead me to the water
Tell Mama that her daughter’s been saved
But if I fall just let me be

I’ve got a little fire Lord I feel it burn
Burning for the pretty little way things were
I can’t help but fall in love with all the stories I heard
When the truth was in the telling and all you need were the words

So you wander on down the road a ways
Trying to remember what the preacher said
To the skinny little girl with the pig tailed braids
Said it so sweet she swore she’d take it to the grave

chorus
