Circus Leaving Town

In the style of

Philip Claypool

Lyrics

before you draw
the final curtain
before the big top
crashes down

before you pack
away my trunkcase
i'd like to take
a final bow

one last chance to
hear the laughter
and see your face
there in the crowd
one last moment
in the spotlight
one last chance
to be your clown

i guess you're tired of
walkin' tightropes
of settin' up
and tearin' down

you want a place
to call forever
and rest your feet
on solid ground
somewhere
you lost that
sense of wonder

but that's still
the place i'm bound
like a storm in
search of thunder
i'm just a
circus leavin' town

once we could
fill a room
with laughter
and fill each other's
hearts with joy

through each trial
and disaster
still we'd cling
to our choice

to take a path
so unforgiving
a road that
waits for no one
you know we chose
to keep on living
oh tell me where
did we go wrong

i guess you're tired of
walkin' tightropes
of settin' up
and tearin' down

you want a place
to call forever
and rest your feet
on solid ground
don't try and break
this spell i'm under

or stop these wheels
from spinnin' 'round
for i'm a storm in
search of thunder
yeah i'm a
circus leavin' town

someday you'll
wake up and wonder
and your heart
will start to pound
and you'll long
for the thunder
and the kisses
of a clown
