Verse 1
The last night of the fair
By the big wheel generator
A boy is stabbed
And his money is grabbed
And the air hangs heavy like a dulling wine
Verse 2
She is famous
She is funny

And someone's beaten up
And the senses being dulled are mine
Verse 7
And though I walk home alone
I might walk home alone ...
...But my faith in love is still devout

A schoolgirl is denied
She said : "How quickly would I die
If I jumped from the top of the parachutes?"

Verse 10
So...scratch my name on your arm with a fountain pen
(This means you really love me)
Scratch my name on your arm with a fountain pen
(This means you really love me)
Oh...
Verse 11
And though I walk home alone
I just might walk home alone
But my faith in love is still devout
I might walk home alone
But my faith in love is still devout
I might walk home alone
But my faith in love is still devout
