Fairground

lyrics

Going down the same road again
that I walked a thousand times before
Oh, you keep leading me as though it’s new
but I can’t do this anymore

I thought that things would change eventually
That I would find a purpose to this life
That this fairground would be filled with lights for me
And that I could be alright

Falling down the same holes again
That I thought I covered up last night
Oh, it seems I’m digging them when I’m asleep
Something about it just ain’t right

Flying over all the obstacles
that are piling up in front of me
This fairground could be filled with lights for me
but I’m blind and cannot see,
are you lighting them for me

Someone said that the cracks in you
are there to let the light shine in
I wonder if they’re enough to lighten this life
if I’m not shining from within

And even though they’re becoming more and more
I feel just as broken as before
if this fairground is a fiction of my mind
I’m not sure there is a cure
will you find me a cure

Going down the same road again
that I walked a thousand times before
Oh you keep leading me as though it’s new
but I can’t do this anymore

I thought that things would change eventually
that I would find a purpose to this life
that this fairground would be filled with lights for me
and that I could be alright

Sofia Talvik Gothenburg, Sweden

Unmistakably Nordic in flavor, Sofia Talvik somehow still conforms to American interpretations of her own original music, a North Sea siren blending sparkle and melancholy, creating a special niche of folk music that has been described as neo-folk. She is a veteran performer with 6 original full length albums as well as numerous EPs, singles and tours behind her. ... more
