Isobel Campbell – The Circus Is Leaving Town lyrics

The party is over now
So draw the curtains down
Your secret is safe to keep
Unzip your velvet gown
And let your hair hang loose
Kick off your satine shoes
Throw back the hided down
Farewell to the friday's clown

Circus is leaving town
Oh Ruby roll your stockins down
Circus is leaving town
Oh Ruby dry your eyes

Fixed up something to heap
Still water still run deep
The dogs are barking now
The bag ar'out on the street

Circus is leaving town
Oh Ruby roll your stockins down
Circus is leaving town
So Ruby dry your eyes

The party is over now
Stop howling at the moon
You need a different being
You need a different tune
Remember that old song
We heard when we were young
Life was an empty page
The world would write upon
Do you recall the mat of grass we sitted and watched the hours pass
He was such a good girl
Then no Ruby dry your eyes

Circus is leaving town
No Ruby roll your stockins down
Circus is leaving town
So Ruby dry your eyes

You're searching when you walk
You're searching when you talk
You could make me believe
That the sun sets in the east
The sun sets in the east
The sun sets in the east
