When the show had finally come
To this sleepy little town
So full of hopes and dreams
So this dirt princess and her clown
It’s just a nickel game
That always seems to end the same
So try your luck on someone new
The only way you know how to do

But who stood in the line
And bought a ticket for a ride
You didn’t have to lie
I would have traded my whole life before I knew

It was in the way you walk
Was in the way to talked to me
You made it oh so clear
Your love was smoke and mirrors

The next day they moved away
Like the leaves they thought would stay
Making every child think
That they might be back one day
The carousel was empty
When the horse had escaped
The innocence was gone
This heart will never be the same

But who stood in line
And was so patient for a ride
You didn’t have to lie
I would have gambled my whole life before I knew
It was the way you walked
Was in the way you talked to me
You made it oh so clear your love was smoke in mirrors
It was the way to you walked
So far away from me
As the curtain closes on the this smoke and mirrors

I’m laughing stock at the freak parade
The only empty cup at this bleak charade
All these cardboard fantasies
They can’t take the wind
They cannot take the rain

It’s in the way you walk
It’s in the way you talked to me
You made it all so clear your love was smoke and mirrors
It was the walk you walked
So far away from as the curtain closes on this smoke and mirrors
