Tears of a Clown

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... Cos 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 this hurt with a show of gladness... But don't let my show convince you... That I've been happy since you... Cos I need to go, oh I need you so... Look I'm hurt and I want you to know... For others I put on a show... Just like Pagliacci did... I try to keep my surface hid... Smiling in the crowd I try... But in a lonely room I cry the tears of a clown... When there's no one around, oh yeah, baby 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... Cos really I'm sad...

Fire and Rain

Just yesterday morning they let me know you were gone... Susanne the plans they made put an end to you... I walked out this morning and I wrote down this song... I just can't remember who to send it to... I've seen fire and I've seen rain... I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end... I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend... But I always thought that I'd see you again... Won't you look down upon me, Jesus... You've got to help me make a stand... You've just got to see me through another day... My body's aching and my time is at hand... And I won't make it any other way... Oh, I've seen fire and I've seen rain... I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end... I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend... But I always thought that I'd see you again... Been walking my mind to an easy time my back turned towards the sun... Lord knows when the cold wind blows it'll turn your head around... Well, there's hours of time on the telephone line to talk about things to come... Sweet dreams and flying machines in pieces on the ground... Oh, I've seen fire and I've seen rain... I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end... I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend... But I always thought that I'd see you, baby, one more time again, now... Thought I'd see you one more time again... There's just a few things coming my way this time around, now... Thought I'd see you, thought I'd see you fire and rain, now...

Drops of Jupiter

Now that she's back in the atmosphere... With drops of jupiter in her hair, hey, hey... She acts like summer and walks like rain... Reminds me that there's time to change, hey, hey... Since the return from her stay on the moon... She listens like spring and she talks like june, hey, hey... Tell me did you sail across the sun... Did you make it to the milky way to see the lights all faded.. And that heaven is overrated... Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star... One without a permanent scar... And did you miss me while you were looking at yourself out there... Now that she's back from that soul vacation... Tracing her way through the constellation, hey, hey... She checks out mozart while she does tae-bo... Reminds me that there's time to grow, hey, hey... Now that she's back in the atmosphere... I'm afraid that she might think of me as plain ol' jane... Told a story about a man who is too afraid to fly so he never did land... Tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet... Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day... And head back to the milky way... And tell me, did venus blow your mind... Was it everything you wanted to find... And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there... Can you imagine no love, pride, deep-fried chicken... Your best friend always sticking up for you even when I know you're wrong... Can you imagine no first dance, freeze dried romance five-hour phone conversation... The best soy latte that you ever had . . . and me...
