I Want Off
 
Lyrics
VERSE
All alone, here I am, with my own thoughts
Listen, wall, it's not all my fault
Lord above, what has love brought?
There she is lookin' all distraught
When the carousel stops, I want off

VERSE
She says she needs me here, but I'm needin' to go
Faster may be better, but I'm needin' slow
When she says do you love me, I get a cough
She's filet; I'm beef stroganoff
When the carousel stops, I want off

First CHORUS
As things are speedin' up, I'm feelin' caught
She's in the bedroom; I'm stuck in the loft
How much longer is this gonna last?
Is it too late? Has the die been cast?
When the carousel stops, I want off

VERSE
Who took the "merry" out of merry-go-round?
Why does she think that we're marriage bound?
I'm doin' all I can to slow it down?
I've got my right foot draggin' the ground
When the carousel stops, I want off

Repeat First CHORUS

RIDE

Second CHORUS
As things are speedin' up, I'm feelin' caught
She's in the bedroom; I'm stuck in the loft
Is that the merry-go-round I hear slowin' down?
Man, oh, man, what a beautiful sound
When the carousel stops, I want off

TAG
When the carousel stops, I want off
Yeah, when the carousel stops, I want off
