"Carousel" as written by and Vanessa Carlton....
For all you brokenhearted lovers lost
Go find another one
Cause you know time won't wait and you'll be late
White rabbits on the run

It's hard to know what's good for you
I know she'll let you down
But the fever breaks when it's too much to take
So you can put your weapons down

And all you'll hear is the music
And beauty stands before you
And love comes back around again
It's a carousel, my friend

Never too late to change the pace
So all the days creep up on you
But the goodness is something you don't have to chase
Cause it's following you

And all you'll hear is the music
And beauty stands before you
And love comes back around again
It's a carousel, my friend

[Repeat: x4]
Ooh, ooh, ooh, oh,

[Repeat: x4]
I thought I heard your voice in the thunder
It's the owl casting spells that we're under

Under

Ooh
And all I hear is the music
And beauty stands before me
And love comes back around again
It's a carousel, my friend

It's in the music
And beauty stands before you
And love comes back around again
It's a carousel, a carousel
It's a carousel, my friend
Time won't wait, so don't be late
White rabbits on the run

    General CommentWell when she premiered it, you can barely make out in the recording something about her writing this for her friend. I think that's exactly what it is.
    Her friend was heartbroken and couldn't see what would come. So, Vanessa wrote her a song.
    She tells her that everything is going to be ok, because she will find someone better and she doesn't have to try so hard because love will find her.

    "the goodness is something you don't have to chase cuz it's following you"
