Lyrics

The stars were out and the moon was bright as I looked across the grounds
I saw a bright lit ferris wheel and a crowd was gathering around
They loosely held their tickets waiting for a ride
They laughed joked loved each other they were caught up in the night
Time unlocks the cage for everyone
When the ferris wheel rolls on and on
 
It’s the fair the county fair of our youth
 
I saw two lovers holding hands as they sat off to the side
There were kids on midway games hoping to win a prize
I heard some people singing songs with a karaoke smile
Pressure had no ticket so it was left in the car for a while
Time unlocks the cage for everyone
When the ferris wheel rolls on and on
 
It’s the fair the county fair of our youth
 
Time roll on and the sun comes up the fair finally goes to bed
It lays asleep for another year resting a hopeful head
It leaves a seed of happiness for the old and young to call
The fair it never ages as it reaches through us all
Time unlocks the cage for everyone
When the ferris wheels rolls on and on
 
It’s the fair the county fair of our youth
