He puts on a brave face every morning and every night
He goes on stage, with a big smile on his face
You split you sides with laughter
You are sitting at the of your seat
‘cause you want some more
Show is over; he goes home, he takes off his mask
Tears running down his face, it's unbelievable
We all have our masks on, the world is a stage
Go on tell me what is your story
Go on don't be shy, what is your story

Chorus
Behind the Mask of a clown lies a trail of tears

Celebrities among us, all the time
Big smiles for the cameras around
They have lives that we only dream of.
But on the inside they hurt just like us,
They have things, we only see in the movies
The tears we cry, on the outside
They cry, on the inside
Just like the clown, they go home
Take off the masks
The world is a stage, go on what is your story.

Chorus
BEHIND THE MASK OF A CLOWN LIES A TRAIL OF TEARS.
