When I hear this song I envision girls in tights and berets riding tandems with boys in corduroy blazers on a sunny fall day. Maybe they stop somewhere to get a coffee. They toss their change into the open guitar case of a street musician before holding hands and running across the street to a park. There’s a carnival there and a Ferris wheel they wish to ride.
I simply love songs with music that evoke images completely contrary to the lyrics.
