The Clown

A long way from tomorrow, just outside of town
a woman in the circus is looking for the clown
is she broken hearted? does he really care?
or did he break in to her heart
to steel the laughter there?

Tears are falling down her face as she cries in the night,
ain’t it funny how you laugh at people when you ain’t got the right

She never thought to ask him as he painted on his face
does anybody play the fool when you laugh them to disgrace?

The circus master calls the clown into the center ring
he’s breaking someone’s heart again but she cain’t say a thing
