Jay, Will - Carnival Lyrics




Once a year you come to town
Old feelings rush in like the crowd
Time after time, your vibrant lights
Remind me of what I've missed

It doesn't matter where you've been
I fall right back to you again
Your Ferris wheels, your house of mirrors
It's like you never left

You say this circus love ain't meant to last
Well how 'bout we give us a chance?

You don't have to come & go
Like a carnival
I know we could have forever if we tried
Whichever city you're in next
Promise me you won't forget
That we could have forever if we tried
We could have forever if we tried

Make the years just melt away
I'm young again, and unafraid
I lose myself on your carousel
The colors of your show

And I don't care that your games are rigged
'Cause you & I are limitless
Don't need to test my strength, even when you're on the road I'm yours

You say this circus love ain't meant to last
Well how 'bout we give us a chance?

You don't have to come & go
Like a carnival
I know we could have forever if we tried
Whichever city you're in next
Promise me you won't forget
That we could have forever if we tried
We could have forever if we tried

We put out the fireworks as soon as we relight them
And yet I'm still attracted to all of your attractions
So why don't you stay

You don't have to come & go
Like a carnival
I know we could have forever if we tried
Whichever city you're in next
Promise me you won't forget
That we could have forever if we tried
We could have forever if we tried

We could have forever if we tried

    [Verse 1:]
    Once a year you come to town
    Old feelings pour in like the crowd
    Time after time, your vibrant lights
    Remind me of what I've missed

    It doesn't matter where you've been
    I fall right back to you again
    Your ferris wheels, your house of mirrors
    It's like you never left

    [Pre-Chorus:]
    You say this circus love ain't meant to last
    Well how 'bout we give us a chance?

    [Chorus:]
    You don't have to come & go
    Like a carnival
    I know we could have forever if we tried

    Whichever city you're in next
    Promise me you won't forget
    That we could have forever if we tried
    We could have forever if we tried

    [Verse 2:]
    Make the years just melt away
    I'm young again, and unafraid
    I lose myself on your carousel
    The colors of your show
    And I don't care that your games are rigged
    'Cause you & I are limitless
    Don't need to test my strength, even when you're on the road I'm yours

    That we could have forever if we tried
    We could have forever if we tried

    [Bridge:]
    We put out the fireworks as soon as we relight them
    And yet I'm still attracted to all of your attractions
    So why don't you stay

    [Chorus:]
    You don't have to come & go
    Like a carnival
    I know we could have forever if we tried

    Whichever city you're in next
    Promise me you won't forget
    That we could have forever if we tried
    We could have forever if we tried

    [Outro:]
    We could have forever if we tried

    My best friend and I recently discovered Will this summer and instantly fell in love! We are dancers and decided to do a tap duet this year to Gentleman. Will is such an inspiration for me as a dancer, his music is my saving grace on a bad day. If he ever comes to Detroit for a show I would definitely love to go! My best friend and I will randomly start singing his music anytime we can. We love you Will!❤

  18. A Healthy Dose of Fran

    Please release this to be bought! (Also, anyone else get a Skyfall feel to the song when it first starts?)
