I don’t know how much time has passed, oh well!
Once more on the merry-go-round, what fun!
And some more candy floss, i love it’s smell
Enticed by the lights, brighter than the sun
This carnival should never end, not now
I haven’t seen the bearded woman yet
The elephant and the acrobats’ show
And what is that? A mirror cabinet?
Let’s enter, quick, before my time is o’er
I wonder where my mother is today?
Just one brief glance, i don’t need any more
Mother, why did you have to pass away?
I want to see my youthful face, so pure
This fear: growing old-too great to endure
