Who Can Cheer a Clown?

(Lyrics by Mike Graczyk)

This is the ring
where I learned to dance
And dream of romanc

Here are the stands
where the patrons go
Loving my show

But I'd like to whisper to a child
That there's no ounce of meaning in this smile
It's a worthless painted mask
So people never choose to ask what's wrong

But now I must laugh on
You can't tell I'm crying
As my soul is dying
And when the songs fade out
No one seems to wonder
Who can cheer a clown?

These are my friends,
we all look alike
Under the lights

Here is our car,
we all fit inside
For one lonely ride

But I'd love to leave this giant tent
Pound my heels along the cracked cement
Fly away without a trace
Wash off the makeup on my face tonight

But now I must laugh on
You can't tell I'm crying
As my soul is dying
And when the songs fade out
No one seems to wonder
Who can cheer a clown?

I don't wish to juggle swords
Loud applause is no reward
For the man who's sadder than he first appears
Now the lion tamer's tired
Acrobats fall off the wire
All the circus magic slowly disappears
