"Merry Go Round" as written by and Acacia Walters-wulfing....
I'm on the merry-go-round of life
I want to get off but I don't know how
I could try to jump off right away
But there's no guarantee I'd make it

Sitting on the same old horse
Thought it was as pretty as yesterday
And now, I'm here going up and down
Never setting foot on real ground

I'm going 'round, up and down, 'round and 'round, up and over, I go
I'm going 'round, up and down, 'round and 'round, up and over, I go, oh oh oh, oh
What do you do when you're stuck in a cycle
Over and over you go
Never let go, they say, but I'm dizzy
Tired of the same old stuff

I'm on the merry-go-round of life
I want to get off to fields wide open
To run and play on the waves of beams
Living on these machines

Instead I'm going 'round, up and down, 'round and 'round, up and over, I go, oh oh oh, oh
I'm going 'round, up and down, 'round and 'round, up and over, I go, do do do do, do
What do you do when you're stuck in a cycle
Over and over you go
Never let go, they say, but I'm dizzy
Tired of the same old stuff

What does it mean, what does it feel like to be free?
Holding our hand, living beyond what's in front me, from what I see

No more going 'round, up and down, 'round and 'round, up and over, I go, oh oh oh, oh
I'm going 'round, up and down, 'round and 'round, up and over, I go, do do do do, do
What do you do when you're stuck in a cycle
Over and over you go (you go)
Never let go, they say, but I'm dizzy
Tired of the same old stuff

I'm on the merry-go-round of life
I'm on the merry-go-round of life
I'm on the merry-go-round of life

    General CommentThis song is featured in a commerical for Windows 7. Very well done, and hoping that it gains them a tremendous amount of exposure.

    Praying for their ministry through music!
