I remember walking hand in hand,
Feeling light as air,
As if the balloons would lift me off
And I’d soar without a care.
I remember dancing on the twister,
Carried by the beat,
Lost in a dizzying whirl of colour
Ice-cream melting in the heat.
I remember the bear you won for me,
The bag of fudge we shared,
I remember the giddy rush and thrill
Of knowing how you cared.
I remember sweet and sticky lips,
Cotton candy kisses,
Trying our luck on those penny stalls,
So many near misses.
Our love was like a rollercoaster,
Ups and downs a trial.
But the thrill of all the highs
Made the lows worthwhile.
But now it feels an age ago
Since you and I were thereWhat happened to our love?
It isn’t fun, it isn’t fair.
