From the recording The County Fair of Our Youth

Lyrics

The stars were out and the moon was bright as I looked across the groundsI saw a bright lit ferris wheel and a crowd was gathering aroundThey loosely held their tickets waiting for a rideThey laughed joked loved each other they were caught up in the nightTime unlocks the cage for everyoneWhen 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 sideThere were kids on midway games hoping to win a prizeI heard some people singing songs with a karaoke smilePressure had no ticket so it was left in the car for a whileTime unlocks the cage for everyoneWhen 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 bedIt lays asleep for another year resting a hopeful headIt leaves a seed of happiness for the old and young to callThe fair it never ages as it reaches through us allTime unlocks the cage for everyoneWhen the ferris wheels rolls on and on It’s the fair the county fair of our youth
