[BC Solo]

"I did a really long song called "the world's fair," which went well, but after had to make one poor kid leave because he was trying to suppress his cough and I could see him doing it and was sure it was going to ruin the take." -BC blog, 2004/04/13

 

Lyrics

cross your gate and skip a beat
ring your bell and cross the street
will you come and take a peek
who's there

time will come suddenly
change your life faithfully
ride the wheel what will you see?
is it me?

the worlds fair/anytime
anytime you need

roam the street, the people stare
thru the gate we walk on air
as we stroll so/debonair
arm in arm

lights string out diamond keys
water washes gentle things
like washing hung to catch the breeze
from the west

the world's fair...

and if you know you'll never leave
and if you know you'll never know
and what you know can never be
more than me and you

let it ride/let it roll
hold my breath/lose control
the world's fair...

stand in line and win a prize
know yourself and get on by
hold your hand up to the sky
for time

sew my vote inside your coat
comb the shadows for higher notes
write to girls i never wrote
but keep in mind

the world's fair...

in the state of holding hands
we take our leave, leave no demand
and build our love into the land
for all/who come behind

cross your gate and skip a beat
close the door and cross the street
will you come and take a peek
as i leave

let it ride/let it roll
hold my breath/lose control

 

Notes
