Before you draw the final curtain
Before the big top crashes down
Before you pack away my trunk case
I'd like to take a final bow
One last chance to hear the laughter
And to 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
Of settin' up and tearing down
You want a place to call forever
And rest your feet on solid ground
Somewhere you lost that sense of wonder
But that's still the place I'm bound
Like a storm in search of thunder
I'm just a circus leaving town
Once we could fill a room with laughter
And fill each other's hearts with joy
Through each trial and disaster
'Til we'd cling to our choice
To take a path so unforgiving a road
That waits for no one
We know we chose to keep on living
Oh, tell me where did we go wrong?
I guess you're tired of walking tightropes
Of settin' up and tearing down
You want a place to call forever
And rest your feet on solid ground
Don't try and break this spell I'm under
Or stop these wheels from spinning round
For I'm a storm in search of thunder
Yeah, I'm a circus leaving town
Someday you'll wake up and wonder
And your heart will start to pound
And you'll long for the thunder
And the kisses of a clown
