Farewell To The Fairground

Album: To Lose My Life… (2009)
Charted: 33
  • The light's still in our eyes
    We're leaving this whole fairground behind
    It's a dream that's going cold

    The circus never dies
    The act forever haunts these skies
    I know we cannot stay

    Farewell to the fairground
    These rides aren't working anymore
    Goodbye to this dead town
    Until the ice begins to thaw

    This place used to gleam
    I see it in my hopeful dreams
    Now I have to get away

    We move towards the stars
    And all that we touch becomes ours
    Let's keep warm till it's day

    Farewell to the fairground
    These rides aren't working anymore
    Goodbye to this dead town
    Until the ice begins to thaw

    We'll head south, just hold my hand now
    I feel like I'm casting off my clothes
    And I'm running through the snow towards the sunset
    And I'm always with you

    Keep on running
    Keep, keep on running
    There's no place like home
    There's no place like home

    Keep on running
    Keep, keep on running
    There's no place like home
    There's no place like home

    Keep on running
    Keep, keep on running
    There's no place like home
    There's no place like home

    Keep on running
    Keep, keep on running
    There's no place like home
    There's no place like home

    Keep on running
    Keep, keep on running
    There's no place like home
    There's no place like home

    Keep on running
    Keep, keep on running
    There's no place like home
    There's no place like home

    Farewell to the fairground
    These rides aren't working anymore
    Goodbye to this dead town
    Until the ice begins to thaw

    We'll head south, just hold my hand now
    I feel like I'm casting off my clothes
    And I'm running through the snow towards the sunset
    And I'm always with you
