je suis un artiste
vous êtes un objet d’art
holding hands on the boardwalk
funnel cakes from a cart
I shotgun a beer
I want to dive off the pier

at the carnival

I am mischievous
my complaints are few
‘cause Coney Island
looks a lot like you
I tremble and twitch
I want to jump off the bridge

at the carnival by the sea

in the haunted mansion
live the ghosts of Luna Park
the calliope fills the dark
playing ‘That Old Gang of Mine’
I can hear that lonesome part
in this dead amusement park

I can’t forget that old quartet
I’m gonna jump off the bridge

the furious Cyclone braves another day
so the thrill of living never goes away
and I’m dreaming of a lost, idyllic sway
on the Ferris wheel out by the bay

idling in my father’s car
at some decaying dead end
and I’m lost in time again
it’s eerily familiar, like a place I’ve always been
with my friends

I can’t forget
