  • Driving down an endless road
    Taking friends or moving alone
    Pleasure at the fairground on the way
    It's always friends that feel so good
    Let's make amends like all good men should
    Pleasure at the fairground on the way
    Walk around, be free and roam
    There's always someone leaving alone
    Pleasure at the fairground on the way

    And I love the thought of coming home to you
    Even if I know we can't make it
    Yes, I love the thought of giving hope to you
    Just a little ray of light shining through

    Love can bend and breathe alone
    Until the end it finds you a home
    Don't care what the people may say
    It's always friends that feel so good
    Let's make amends like all good men should
    Pleasure at the fairground on the way

    And I love the thought of coming home to you
    Even if I know we can't make it
    Yes, I love the thought of giving hope to you
    Just a little ray of light shining through
    And I love the thought of coming home to you
    Even if I know we can't make it
    Yes, I love the thought of giving hope to you
    Just a little ray of light shining through

    Pleasure at the fairground on the way

    And I love the thought of coming home to you
    Even if I know we can't make it
    Yes, I love the thought of giving hope to you
    Just a little ray of light shining through
    And I love the thought of coming home to you
    Even if I know we can't make it
    Yes, I love the thought of giving hope to you
    Just a little ray of light shining through

    Love the thought
    Even if I know we can't make it
    Love the thought Writer/s: Michael James Hucknall
