This song is by David Wilcox and appears on the album Turning Point (1997) and on the album Live Songs & Stories (2002).

Circus-boy run-away steely-eyed gypsy
Seems to be adjusted to the clatter of the fair
He says "watch your step" as he tears two tickets briskly
Watches her summer legs climb the stairs

So you follow on, tip right in, latch the bar, lean to
Feel the smooth touch of summer skin
Then it all starts moving like no one else can see you
Cupid pulls the lever and the whole thing spins

You had a shiny ride getting out of here
We never heard a word when you disappeared

Suddenly your lover just climbs right out
Steps across thin air and leaves you there
Try to catch your breath, but the bar is tight against your chest
And the ride is spinning so hard it holds you in your chair

Spin
You had a shiny ride getting out of here
We never heard a word when you disappeared

Well that shiny ride was just lies and skin
To lead you on, pull you in
Took you for a spin

When it lets you out you find it's many months later
Deep into winter in a small-time town
Walking kind aimlessly, one hand on a railing
You stop a while to wait until the spinning slows down

'Cause you had a shiny ride getting out of here
We never heard a word when you disappeared
Well that shiny ide was just lies and skin
To lead you on, pull you in
Took you for a spin

Come on and ride on a shiny new love
Don't look behind you can step right up
Come on and ride on a shiny new love
Don't look behind you can step right up

Took you for a spin
