Roy Orbison – The Actress lyrics

Well you should be an actress
You play your part so well
Your act is so believable
That no one else can tell

You say the lines, but I see
That you don't really love me

You keep me around to be your faithful clown
Till someone you can love comes along
You'll keep on pretending
Because the show must go on

Yes, you should be an actress
As lovely as you are
The way you play on emotion
You'd shame the brightest star

You're acting all the time
No, you're not really mine

I'm just another scene in your play acting scheme
No, you don't love me at all
But when you walk away
That's when the curtain will fall

But I'll go all the way to the end of the play
I'll be a part of your masquerade
Although I know it may be the saddest show
In the life of a fool on parade
