Carousel – I can’t get off

She can’t hide no matter how hard she tries
Her secret disguised behind the lies
And at night she cries away her pride
With eyes shut tight staring at her inside
All her friends know why she can’t sleep at night
All her family asking if she’s alright
All she wants to do is get rid of this hell
Well all she’s got to do is stop kidding herself
She can only fool herself for so long [x3]
I’m too weak to face me
(she can only fool herself)

[chorus]
I never know just why you run so far away, far away from me [x2]

When it comes to how to live his life he can’t be told
Says he’s got it all under control
Thinks he knows it’s not a problem he’s stuck with
But in reality it’d be a problem to just quit
An addict and he can’t hold the reins
The pain is worse cause his friends have it the same
Tries to slow down the problem he’s got
But can’t get off the carousel until he makes it stop
He can only fool himself for so long [x3]
I’m too weak to face me
(he can only fool himself)

[chorus x2]

Fly with me under the wings I gave you,
Try to be closer to me and I’ll save you [x2]

[chorus x4]

About gabe126

I'm a 29 year old gay trans guy who lives in Philadelphia. Gabe is not my real name, well, it's my middle name, but for anonymity's sake, let's go with that. I hold bachelor's degrees in both music and special education, and I am currently 2 semesters away from graduating with my masters in special education and autism studies. I am disabled due to severe mental illness (bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, and OCD). I play the trombone and piano, although it's been a few years since I seriously touched a piano. I have 5 tattoos and another one planned, I just don't have the money right now. Derek Jeter, former Yankee's shortstop, is my husband.
