The Comedians LyricsArtist: Elvis Costello
Album: Goodbye Cruel World
I sat there alone upon the ferris wheel
A pastel-colored carriage in the air
I thought you'd leave me dangling for a little while
A silly twist upon a childish dare
Below I saw you whisper to another man
Who held the lever that could bring me down
He stopped the world from turning at your command
It's always something cruel when left to drown
I can hardly hear the music from the carousel
The wind picks up, the carriage starts to sway
And one by one the lights go out, it's closing time
I see you take his hand and walk away
They say that you are always the last to know
They say that all that glitters is not gold
It's not just that you're never coming back to me
It's the bitter way that I was told.
