Maeve O'Boyle - vocals & guitar
'Carnival Attraction' is Maeve O'Boyle's comment on the dangers of fame, with specific reference to Amy Winehouse. The song was co-written with Echo and the Bunnymen guitarist Gordy Goudie.
Maeve says: 'I think that my song Carnival Attraction would make a great song for Pink, I'd love to hear her do a version of it!'
'Carnival Attraction' is the second single taken from Maeve O'Boyle's debut album 'All My Sins'.
Lady tried to die young but then she aged
Like the red red wine caressing her lips
Another cigarette and one for the road
Surviving hard and fast and always dancing solo
Lady had a great head for heights
And always stumbled across her own sweet spotlight
Another Polaroid, there's blood on her hands
Her fingers grip the wheel; she's breaking out with the band
She don't wanna live forever
You cant make her try
Better things to do with this life
Than to spend your time trying to stay alive
She might make the Sunday papers
Oh those headlines and by-lines
They read like Plath poetry
The world knows better
Think you know her
You'll never know the flight of this free bird
Oh no you'll never know
