Clowns in the doorway
There are clowns in the doorway
The circus is not in town
I'm looking for a trapeze
To swing my way out and down

The Jester juggles woeful sins
And smiles winsomely
He knows but holds your secret
Harlequins are a mystery

I watched you do a pirouette
Turning on a dime

I'm left talking to myself
Barkers dare my reckless hand
Walking down the sad fairway
Looking for a place to land
Masked Dancers sing all my lies
Mocking my every try

The melody rises from
the calliope
I watched you do a pirouette
Turning on a dime

Covered my ears in vain protest
Memories I still maintained
They're loathsome and relentless
I've lost more than I have gained

The dancer said she loved me
Cries but make no sound
We are swinging on a trapeze
With no net to let us down
