Conway Twitty - Clown Lyrics




You love the way it makes me feel when I can't catch my breath
Like walkin' on a high wire, Lord, it scares me half to death
You're always high above me and I'm always fallin' down
Our love's just a circus baby, and I'm just the clown.

And I'll do tricks for you, just like you want me to
I'll do anything it takes just to hang around
I'll paint a smile for you to cover up my frown
'Cause our loves a circus and I'm just the clown.

Everyone's in love with you, but they just look at me and laugh
And I'll bet when they see me cry, they think it's just an act
Ah, but someday when it's over and we bring the big top down
You can say it was one big circus and I was just the clown.

And I'll do tricks for you, just like you want me to
I'll do anything it takes just to hang around
I'll paint a smile for you to cover up my frown
'Cause you love the circus, but you don't love the clown...

    You love the way it makes me feel when I can't catch my breath
    Like walkin' on a high wire, Lord, it scares me half to death
    You're always high above me and I'm always fallin' down
    Our love's just a circus baby, and I'm just the clown
    And I'll do tricks for you, just like you want me to
    I'll do anything it takes just to hang around
    I'll paint a smile for you to cover up my frown
    'Cause our loves a circus and I'm just the clown
    Everyone's in love with you, but they just look at me and laugh
    And I'll bet when they see me cry, they think it's just an act
    Ah, but someday when it's over and we bring the big top down
    You can say it was one big circus and I was just the clown
    And I'll do tricks for you, just like you want me to
    I'll do anything it takes just to hang around
    I'll paint a smile for you to cover up my frown

  8. loretta taylor

    Sometimes i feel like the clown at times

  9. Glenda Lewman

    He found his musical niche when he concentrated on country. Timing for his music was perfect. Smooth voice; true emotion. I had read that he didn't like making videos. He stayed true to the music and his way of presenting it to the audience.

  10. Double D

    Man, what a vocalist this man was! There really weren’t to many real vocalist out there . What I mean is when one comes on the radio and you know who it is from the first note! RIP Conway!!
