Give in to uncertainty
In the land of bright lights and starry nights
The sweet scent of cotton candy
Acknowledges old acquaintances;
Airy wisps of donuts, deep-fried
Sausages sizzling on steamy stands.
The night is young, and so are you-
So inhale the rush and excitement
And soak up the screams of laughter.
Let your youth lead,
Take your tokens.
Hold your eyes tight and feel the fairground
With hands held hard
Release. See smiles ablur
Swirling and spinning
Throw your head back
Feel the tears of inertia stream down your cheeks
As you ground to a halt
Shake off that feeling of nauseous nostalgia
Step back into reality - it's over.
