carried away

what’s he looking at

even the taxi looks perturbed today

won’t be the last time

someone got carried away

                         carried away

you can almost see them lined up at the curb

to wave away the schemer

but once upon a time

she’d fly into your arms

but not everyone got hurt

not everyone got hurt

but everyone got carried away

                                carried away

she took refuge in a dreamer

who had no plan

no scam to play

and that made no one a believer

‘til truth and love were chipped away

So, you became their rebel

and you became their cause

yes, whatever life gets chipped away

falls around us all

but not everyone got hurt

not everyone got hurt

but everyone got carried away

                                carried away

so maybe you’re naïve

holding out for some kind of sincerity

got your sixteen years waiting on a cab

on love’s cul-de-sac

they called parity

but not everyone got hurt

not everyone got hurt

but everyone got carried away

                                carried away

still caught up in the headlights

you’d rage now if you could

you’d go back and block the doorway

where truth  was carried out

and there’s no doubt you’ve been naïve

holding on to some kind of sincerity

got your sixteen years in the back of a cab

leaving love’s cul-de-sac they called parity

but not everyone got hurt

not everyone got hurt

but everyone got carried away

so carried away

                          …..so carried away

                                            carried away
