about

TUNNEL OF LOVE: A Carnival Song.  Bright but with a sinister undertone.  You can hear the call of the Carney from the first chords.  It showcases the essential Cranky George sound.  Leans on the accordion and mandolin.  Loss and sadness mixed with a rip-roaring chorus that burns off frustration. 

lyrics

Mascara
Mascara
Running down
Your face
Mascara
Mascara
Running down
Your face
From your eyes
Your eyes

You tried your luck on the carousel
He lied, he lied
Tried your luck on the Ferris wheel
He lied, he lied
You tried your luck in the Tunnel of Love
But there wasn’t any love in the Tunnel of Love
And it turns out
The Tunnel of Love
Was a lie

Miranda
Miranda
Was the name
He sighed

Miranda
Not Mariah
Was the name
Not your name, not your name
He sighed
When he lied
With his eyes

You tried your luck on the carousel
He lied, he lied
Tried your luck on the Ferris wheel
He lied, he lied
Tried your luck in the Tunnel of Love
But there wasn’t any love in the Tunnel of Love
And it turns out
The Tunnel of Love
Was a lie

You think you’ll never touch the ground again
As the wonder wheel turns round and round
The tears that fall when the ride gets to the top
Down at the bottom you can catch on your tongue
Like a sad, salt raindrop

The music of the carousel
Smell of sawdust and shucked peanut shells
Will haunt your dreams
’Til you have dreamed your last
First heartbreak’s like a slap in the face
With a bag of broken glass

Poor Mariah
With your mascara
Running down
Your face
From your eyes
You despise
For the tears
They cry

You tried your luck on the carousel
He lied, he lied
Tried your luck on the Ferris wheel
He lied, he lied
Tried your luck in the Tunnel of Love
But there wasn’t any love in the Tunnel of Love
And it turns out
The Tunnel of Love
Yeah, it turns out
The Tunnel of Love
Yeah, it turns out
The Tunnel of Love

It was a lie!
