lyrics

Kaleidoscope
©2004 Henry Boy Jenkins

I don’t wanna get hurt
I don’t wanna loose my pride
Love is a Wishing Well
But it’s so hard to tell what’s inside

It doesn’t take a genius
To see how others seen us
It’s a story that you know too well
Despite my best intention
I guess I failed to mention
Bitter pill in the candy shell

Carousel kaleidoscope
Pretty pictures in a mirrored pose
Painted ponies in a row
Broken hearts in my kaleidoscope

I just wanna play it safe
I wanna be sure this time
Love is a spinning top
It has been known to stop on a dime

Don’t take a Ph.D.
To see we’re history
I guess it’s just the way the story goes
Blow the first impression
Go in the wrong direction
I’m standing all alone outside your door

Carousel kaleidoscope
Pretty pictures in a mirrored pose
Painted ponies in a row
Broken hearts in my kaleidoscope
Broken hearts in my kaleidoscope

I don’t wanna get
I don’t wanna get lost again
I don’t wanna loose my way

I just wanna come
I just wanna come home again
I need you to light my way

Don’t need to be clairvoyant to see that we avoided
The simple handwriting on the wall
Honey, it’s now or never
There’s no time to be clever
Keep your eye on the bouncing ball
