Intro:

Am Am Em Em (x2)

Am Am
The lights still in our eyes,
C C Am Am Em Em
We're leaving this old fairground behind,
D D
It's a dream that's growing cold
Am Am
The circus never dies,

The eye forever haunts these skies,
D D
I know I cannot stay

Farewell to the fairground, these rides aren't working any more
F F G G Am Am Em Em G G
Goodbye to this dead town, until the ice begins to thaw

Am Am
This place used to gleam,
C C Am Am Em Em
I see it in my hopeful dreams,

Now I have to get away.
Am Am
We move towards the stars,
C C Am Am Em Em
And all that we touch becomes ours,
D D
Let's keep warm til it's day

We'll head south just hold my hand now,

I feel like I'm casting off my clothes,

And I'm running through the snow towards the sunset,
Em Em G G
And I'm always with you

And I'm always with you
