  • Last Merry Go Round (for Deep Fixer)

    DF

    I went away and transcribed what I could, but when I logged back in I see it was actually Ferris Wheel you were looking for! I'll give that a go too. In the meantime, I think this is maybe about 80% accurate!


    Last Merry Go Round

    I was learning to fly, I was rising so high
    My feet left the ground, I was riding the sky
    I was last, last, last on the merry
    I was last, last, last on the merry
    I was last, last, last on the merry go round

    Call me a victim, call me a fool
    I gotta make the hero (?), I got out of school
    I was last, last, last on the merry
    I was last, last, last on the merry
    I was last, last, last on the merry go round

    Everything loves me and everything’s real
    Ah! That sweet anticipation was all I could feel
    My conscience is clean and my head’s in a spin
    The world is (my oyster? Probably not - ZT)
    There was nothing to fear.
    I was last, last, last on the merry
    I was last, last, last on the merry
    I was last, last, last on the merry go round

    It’s certainly cool, it was sweet for a spell
    It came to a stop and then I was in Hell
    I was last, last, last on the merry
    I was last, last, last on the merry
    I was last, last, last on the merry go round
    I was last, last, last on the merry
    I was last, last, last on the merry
    I was last, last, last on the merry go round

    I got the lyrics that I used in a little "cut and paste" from Max Wilcox's 'Terminal Cafe' site.

    I also "lifted" Starcruiser, Dodgem Dude, Sixteen Year Old Doom, Rolling in the Ruins and Candyfloss Cowboy.

    Glad to see y'all are digging it, too! :D Was kind of wondering, 'cause nobody was commenting on them, lots of viewings, though.

      I'll check out accuracy of mine then! Is the url listed anywhere on MWM?

        Dunno if it's here. It used to be (I think) on the old Multiverse site.

        Some of the lyrics Max transcribed don't match exactly with the tracks on NWF, so I 'correct' them as/when I post the songs. 'Correct' being defined as how I hear them, which may not be right either :P
