Lyrics

The clown

(Agerlin) 

 

Dm

On unicycle the clown goes on

                                                               C-C/B-C/A-C/G

Roars of laughter the sound of fun turns down

Dm

A show is over applause has stopped

                                                                       C-C/B-C/A-C/G

Another place another show to set up all alone

F                         G                    C-C/B-C/A-C/G

His face was smiling kindly all made of paint

F                         G                    C-C/B-C/A-C/G

Expresses his weak hope slightly covered his pain

F                         G                    C-E7-Am

His tears of laughter were sometimes tears in vain

F                                           G

But to the crowd he was the same

 

I was on stage when she gave me a son

Result of love – to the very first one – all had begun

I was on stage until the day she died

Did my job with tear filled eyes she had gone

 

I knew the time had come, it didn't take long

My hope that doc mistook it

Just turned out wrong

My cries for help was like an unwritten song

Never spoke these words before

 

From that day he will always lie

His face will smile not follow his mind which will cry

 

Can’t tell the people he is just like them

His thoughts remind him of her again and again

But they will never know will never get so close to see

He’s just like you and me

Can't you see
