[E]The carousel is spinning fast
Better enjoy while it [C]lasts
Every moment is like gold
You'll remember when you're old[E]
And the meaning of this life
Is to live and is to [C]die
Make the best out of your dreams
They are the world where you are [E]free
All the sorrow and the pain
Will be washed away by [C]rain
An eternal joy will come
It can be found by every[E]one
Though the end is drawing near
I'm not feeling any [C]fear
I have found the truth inside
After all the tears I [E]cry
Season of [C]Change
Repeat E ,C and fade out.
