You know he's gotta get away
To the merry go round and round
Count the times that he laid awake at night thinkin'
Am i goin' down now
Am i goin' down
Am i goin' down now oh!
It's not easy puttin' on a smile
You're alone lost and found
She waits at home just to love him through the night thinkin'
He's been gone so long now
Is he comin' home?
He's been gone so long now oh!
Merry-go-round and round (repeat)
She waits alone
Just to love him through the night
I'm coming home babe
