love is like a carnie's ride
you'll never know how bent the light is
walk right in
i'm told that i would recognize
if i was hit between the eyes with it
and what lies within

i've been known to lend a hand
i've been accused of being
a kind sort of man

so take a kindly tip from me
ain't nothing good will ever come for free
or easily

least of all the lovers that i've known
i had to dig through leagues of the deepest stone
just to find the gold

love is like a carnie's smile
cracked from years of travelling wide and thin
and full of sin

on the road between the towns
where the feet will never touch the ground
or make a sound

all the love that i've lost
the price i paid
could never justify the cost

love is like a carnie's ride
pay your dime and ride the slide away
now don't die today
ride that wheel up to the top
and try to see the view that you forgot
the view you bought
