Before you drop the final curtain
Before the big tower crashes down
Before you pack away my trunk case
I'd like to take a final bounce
One last chance to hear the laughter
And see your face there in the crowd
One last moment in the spotlight
One last chance to be your clown

I guess you're tired of walking tightropes
Hope setting up band tearing down
You want a place to call forever
And rest your feet on solid ground
Somewhere you've lost that sense of wonder
But that's still the place I'm bound
I'm a storm man searchin' thunder
I'm just a circus leaving town
Once we could fill the room with laughter
And fill each other's hearts with joy
Through each trial and disaster
Still we cling to our choice
To take a path of one for giving
A road that waits for no one
You know we chose to keep on living
Lord, tell me where did we go wrong

I guess you're tired of walking tightropes
Hope setting up band tearing down
You want a place to call forever
And rest your feet on solid ground
Don't try to break this spell on monder
Oh stop these wheels from spinning around
I'm a storm man searchin' thunder
Yes I'm just a circus leaving town
Some day you'll wake up a wonder
And your heart will start to pound
And you'll long for the fonder
And the kiss is of the clown
