I've been dreamin' and drivin' so fast for so long
Fallin' and climbin', fallin' and carryin' on
Hell bent on stayin' one step ahead
So caught up in the game, I can't catch my breath
Livin' too bright to soak up the sun
Missin' the miles for the races I've run

But I'm slowly slowin' me down
Knowin' this world will go round
It'll keep goin' round even when I stop spinnin'
I'm figurin' out it ain't all about winnin'
You ride like the wind
Smile like a child
Land with both feet on the ground
The trick is to know when to let go of the merry go round

When the ride leaves you dizzy and life's such a blur
There's no difference between where you are and where you were
It's movin' too fast, and God knows it will
Sometimes you need some time sittin' still

And I'm slowly slowin' me down
Knowin' this world will go round
It'll keep goin' round even when I stop spinnin'
I'm figurin' out it ain't all about winnin'
You ride like the wind
Smile like a child
Land with both feet on the ground
The trick is to know when to let go of the merry go round

You ride like the wind
Smile like a child
Land with both feet on the ground
The trick is to know when to let go
The trick is to know when to let go of the merry go round
Oh this merry go round
