Albums: Caress of Steel (1975)

Midway hawkers calling
Try your luck with me
Merry-go-round wheezing
The same old melody
A thousand ten cent wonders
Who could ask for more
A pocketful of silver
The key to heaven's door

Lakeside park
Willows in the breeze
Lakeside park
So many memories
Laughing rides
Midway lights
Shining stars on summer nights

Days of barefoot freedom
Racing with the waves
Nights of starlit secrets
Crackling driftwood flames
Drinking by the lighthouse
Smoking on the pier
Still we saw the magic
Fading every year

Everyone would gather on the twenty-fourth of may sitting
In the sand to watch the fireworks display dancing fires on
The beach singing songs together though it's just a memory
Some memories last forever
