Lyrics


The Clown

After a couple of bottle of red wine The truth finally came out The words: I don't love you anymore Spilled from his mouth So I looked to the waiter for some consolation But he just poured the coffee, And without hesitation he said: Ma'am, is that all you'll be needing tonight? And oh, the piano kept playing And nobody noticed the heart in the corner booth breaking Cell phones kept ringing, glasses were clinking Everyone laughing and dancing and singing So I painted a smile on my face to cover the frown In that room full of jokers and jesters I was the clown Well, you can't walk the high wire of love and be afraid to fall And you can't put all of your faith in a gypsy's crystal ball We just do what we do Take the chances we take Show me a life without a mistake Oh, we all learn our lessons and we all fall down And oh, the piano keeps playing And nobody notices the heart in the corner booth breaking Cell phones keep ringing, glasses keep clinking Everyone laughing and dancing and singing So if you paint a big smile on your face to cover the frown In that room full of jokers and jesters Sometimes you're the clown When the circus is over And the tents are pulled down The truth is, the show must go on for the clown And oh, the piano kept playing
