Circus Leaving Town
Before you draw the final curtain Before the big top crashes down Before you pack away my trunk case I'd like to take a final bow One last chance to hear the laughter And to 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 walking tightropes Of settin' up and tearing 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 leaving town Once we could fill a room with laughter And fill each other's hearts with joy Through each trial and disaster 'Til we'd cling to our choice To take a path so unforgiving a road That waits for no one We know we chose to keep on living Oh, tell me where did we go wrong? I guess you're tired of walking tightropes Of settin' up and tearing 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 spinning round For I'm a storm in search of thunder Yeah, I'm a circus leaving 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
