Meet me by the Big Wheel Edinburgh Hogmanay Song

This song was inspired by the big wheel in Edinburgh Princes Street gardens. In the lyrics I've attempted to paint a picture of Edinburgh at Christmas/New Year and also tried to link the turning of the year with the turning of the wheel. Musically I tried to structure the song like going round on the wheel, reaching a crescendo in the middle, almost pausing at the top and gently going down to the bottom, with the suggestion of going around again next year at the end.
