From The Top Of The Ferris Wheel

11.5.2018

 

Feels like I’m riding a Ferris Wheel

With its neon night lights

Spinning throughout the night

But where will it take me

Never take me anywhere

But back to where I got on

Then into another line at the Fair

And that’s how it feels…

 

Fair

 

Back where I began

Only now made aware

Of the much brighter lights

I should reach for out there

Thanks to the height of the Ferris Wheel

Thanks to the night

From the top of the Ferris Wheel

 

Feels like I’m riding a Ferris Wheel

But it’s not from the safety

Of the seat makes me feel

There’s more for me in life

Than a gerbil in a wheel

 

Then it stops at the top

So close yet so far 

But I swear I can plot

My name in the stars

Trace my name through a constellation 

Of stars

 

For a moment

Stuck with my head in the clouds

Dreaming of my place in the stars

But I’ll never get there

Driving Ferris Wheel cars

 

At the hands of a wheel

When I need my hands on the wheel

 

A slight jolt and I’m back

Though I’ve never gone far

Remember right where I’m at

Stuck in a Ferris Wheel car

Now I’m on my way down

It always lets me down

Back to where I got on

Then into another line at the Fair

And that’s how it feels…

 

Fair

 

It’s up to me

To reach for the stars out there

It’s on me that I chose

Just a line at the fair

So I leave the Fair

Off to write how I feel

Thanks to the height of the Ferris Wheel

Thanks to the night

From the top of the Ferris Wheel
