​The Clown

This song is by Hillary Lindsey and appears on the compilation Clover Country (2008).

Original video
After a couple of bottles of red wine
The truth finally came out
The words 'I don't love you any more'
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 ringin', glasses were clinkin'
Everyone laughin', dancin' 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, yeah
And we all fall down

And, oh, the piano keeps playing
And nobody notices the heart in the corner booth breaking
Cell phones keep ringin', glasses keep clinkin'
Everyone laughin', dancin' and singing
So 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

Oh, the piano keeps playing
And nobody notices the heart in the corner booth breaking
Cell phones keep ringin', glasses keep clinkin'
Everyone laughin', dancin' and singing
So you paint a big smile on your face to cover the frown
Sometimes in a room full of jokers and jesters
You are the clown

When the circus is over
And the tents are pulled down
The truth is, the show must go on
For the clown
