This song is by Emmylou Harris and appears on the movie soundtrack Because of Winn-Dixie (2005).

Cabaret - Emmylou Harris - soundtrack from "Because of Winn Dixie?

You once dreamed of castles and merry go rounds
To be Cinderella in an Alice movie
Now side streets and back beats and what might have been
Lead you to nowhere again and again
The curtain is calling, come take your bow,
It's getting too late for turning back now

Can you still believe that lifes a cabaret
And fairy tales will carry you away
Its closing time and your left on your own
And only you can find a way back home

You look under rainbows look over the lies
You look for an answer in anyone's eyes
Reach out for lovers in too many beds
Reach for the needle but can't hold a thread
Whiskey and roses fill your loving cup

Leaving you empty when the suns coming up

And you still believe that lifes a caberet
And fairy tales will carry you away
When loneliness is the world you've ever known
And only you can find the way back home

That knight in shining armor, you know he'll never come
On to the cabaret old chum

Do you still believe that lifes a caberet,
That fairy tales will carry you away
Its closing time and your left on your own
And only you can find a way back home
The way back home, the way back home, the way back home
