Verse 2
Take a piece of what you make
Drink the health of all we say
But if the water tastes so sweet
You take water from me
You gotta know now
It’s not right
A piece of time
Takes a little piece of the world
A piece of mine
Peace of mind
Now don’t try to take my heart
Now don’t try to take my heart
Don’t be alright
Upon this carousel running wild
Outro (over verse chords)
I thought I saw you
I thought I saw you
I thought I saw you
I thought I saw you
