Lyrics

Maddie’s skirt spins in the sun, her curls fly round her head.
In her eyes are dreams I’ll never realize and words best never said.
She picks a fight and won’t hesitate to grab me by the throat.
Maddie cries when I ask her why she gave away her coat.
And I wonder, I wonder when the ride will end, whirling, twirling on our merry go round as
Maddie goes by and by again.
Maddie speaks in verse. She says what she means just depends.
By the time I figure her out I’ll drink all the bourbon in New Orleans.
Then she’ll be so quiet, we’re together but I’m alone.
She’s off somewhere, in another place, and I go and get stoned.
And I wonder, I wonder when the ride will end, whirling, twirling on our merry go round as
Maddie goes by and by again.
A raindrop on her face, a kiss upon a cheek,
she shares a secret smile, and I feel too weak to speak.
In the alleys after the bars are closed she prays for souls she feared.
The only thing that I understand is life is so damn weird.
After all the sad sweet songs, after the others were all gone,
we traded a thousand cuts and wrongs but we’re still spinning on.
And I wonder, wonder when the ride will end, whirling, twirling on our merry go round as Maddie
goes by and by again.
And I wonder, I wonder when the ride’ll end, whirling, twirling on our merry go round as
Maddie goes by and by . . .
