​Tears Of A Clown

This song is by Enuff Z'Nuff and appears on the album 1985 (1994).

Now if there's a smile on my face
It's only there trying to fool the public
But when it comes down to fooling you
Now honey that's quite a different subject
But don't let my glad expression
Give you the wrong impression
'Cause really I'm sad, Oh I'm sadder than sad
Well I'm hurt and I want you so bad
Like a clown I appear to be glad ooh yeah

Well they're some sad things known to man
But ain't too much sadder than
The tears of a clown when there's no one around

Oh yeah, baby baby, oh yeah baby baby
Now if I appear to be carefree
It's only to camouflage my sadness
And honey to shield my pride I try
To cover up hurt with a show of gladness
Well, don't let my show convince you
That I've been happy since you
Decided to go, now I'm needing you so

Now baby, there's some sad things known to man
But not too much sadder than
The tears of a clown when there's no one around
The tears of a clown when there's no one around

Now baby, there's some sad things known to man
But not too much sadder than
The tears of a clown when there's no one around
The tears of a clown when there's no one around

Oh yeah baby

Now if there's a smile on my face
Don't let my glad expression
Give you the wrong impression
Don't let this smile I wear
Make you think that I don't care
