G#m    E           G#m E    G#m  E    
Didn't anybody see his hand move faster
                   F#
Than the lightning in his eyes
                                          
Oh! what a cold surprise the flying horses cried
G#m E              G#m             E       
And didn't anybody want to ask the calliope
   F#
To call the tune

The flying horses crooned but did not know

VERSE 2

    G#m               E  
The Medicine Man sits on the stage
     G#m             E                   F#
Eats fire and water, earth and air while we all stare

The silver blade burns bright
                E
And tells us to beware
   G#m               E    G#m              E
Of mirrored passages that throw a thousand images
   F#
Of younger days
                                              G#
The wheel spins slower as it calls us back to play

E  B

VERSE 3
********
G#m                    F#
Round and round now we go

Shout your name to the wind
      Bbm
As it spins by your side
G#m                                       E
Colored lights echo as the sound slips on by
                     F#
Could that have been me

There's a little bit of you and some of me

There's a little bit of everything you see

But you don't know why Harry cried

There's a time right after love when you feel low

Pass you on by with a smile

Take a look at yourself in the light

People see by the look in your eyes

Either you're deaf or you're blind

But you don't know why Harry cried

Well you pick him up and you put him in your hand

E              A            D             A
I once loved a lady who did change into a child
  E                D                A
I saw the light of day shine in her eyes
  A                           D                 A
I loved her like a baby and I raised her to the sky

A pebble or a broken shell
  D             A
A rock upon the shore

I doubt if I could love her any more

The seconds they dripped right on by
    G                 D

And feelings born can only fade    away
