SEE THE FUNNY LITTLE CLOWN Bobby Goldsboro See the funny little clown See him laughing as you walk by, Everybody thinks he's happy Cause you never see a tear in his eye. No one knows he's crying, No one knows he's dying on the inside Cause he's laughing on the outside, mm, No one knows, no one knows. See the funny little clown, he's hiding behind a smile. They all think he's laughing But I know he's really crying all the while. How his heart is aching, how his heart is breaking on the inside, But he keeps laughing on the outside, mm, No one knows, no one knows. This funny little clown you never used to see him around Without his girl beside him to love and guide him, Until one day his girl just walked away And to this very day he says he never loved her anyway, Mm, and no one knows except for me Because you see I'm that funny little clown.

Nobody's

Linda Rondstadt "Silk Purse"
written by Gary White One year later I saw her Wearing a face in a strange disguise Carried a smile they taught her Gives it away at the edge of her eyes Didn't I see the sunshine through the rainfall She's crying and she knows it She's crying and she shows it on the outside now Whatever happened to the girl that was Did she go inside because it's cold out here Sooner or later she told me I am in love again, truly this time Nothing at home left to hold me The city's just great and the world treats me fine Didn't she think I heard that old refrain before She's lying and she knows it She's lying and she shows it on the outside now Whatever happened to the girl that was Did she go inside because it's cold out here Didn't she think I'd seen someone in pain before She's crying and she knows it She's crying and she shows it on the outside now Whatever happened to the girl that was Did she go inside because it's cold out here

Poor Little Girl

GEORGE HARRISON "Best Of Dark Horse 1976-1989"
Poor little girl With her head in the air There's a poorly sick world all around you Poor horny boy One thing on his mind That poor little girl He must find you Chorus: There's a whole lotta love Shaking inside of me And I must figure out why it's there There's a bottomless heart That's hooked into all of you And it's wondering how much you care Poor little girl With a whole in her heart There's a poorly sick world all around you Poor horny boy One thing on his mind That poor little girl He must find you There's a whole lotta love Shaking inside of me And I must figure out why it's there There's a bottomless heart Hooked into all of you And it's wondering how much you care Poor little boy Head in a whirl There's a phony slick world all around you That poor little girl With her head in the air That poor little boy he must find you There's a whole lotta love Shaking inside of me And I must figure out why it's there There's a bottomless heart Hooked into all of you And it's wondering how much you care There's a need and desire I have To express what's inside of me I must figure it out while it's still there And an endless amout of Of a joy that you touch me with Thought it's almost too much for me to bear Poor litte girl

A Wild Heart Looking For Home

JOHN DENVER "Dreamland Express"
(Denver/Henry) Life in the city gets all closed in when you stand in a crowd all alone. Wishing that someone would call out your number, hoping that someone might phone. Nights in the city can drive you crazy, there so very much going on. Try to get quiet, you'll miss out on something like someone who's looking for, someone who's looking... There, I almost got caught again, lost in the night all alone. With nowhere to hide, crying inside, a wild heart looking for home. Sleeping without you is always cold, the nights are so dark and so long. Dreaming of touching your face in the moonlight, filling the silence with song. Living without you, the days are endless, the clock winding steadily down. Imagining footsteps, your hand at the gatepost, the wind shuts the open door, the wind shuts the open... There, I almost got caught again, lost in the night all alone. With nowhere to hide, crying inside, a wild heart looking for home. The songbird, she trembles all day long. She sings as if her poor heart must break. Watching the freedom that flies past her window, dreaming won't fit in a cage. Fly away songbird, the wind still loves you, your prison is forsaken at last. Follow your dreaming, you're bound up to heaven, you're reaching for something more, reaching for something... There, I almost got caught again, lost in the night all alone. With nowhere to hide, crying inside, a wild heart looking for there, I thought of your face again, a vision to have and to hold. My spirit still sings, I'm flying again, a wild heart looking for home. A wild heart looking for home.

Let Me Inside

SANTANA "Viva Santana!"
Let Me Inside (Music/ Lyrics: Carlos Santana Chris Solberg) Well, hello, what's your name Can I take you by the hand Won't you please come with me To a place of ecstasy Paradise by the sun Girl, I'm sure we'll have some fun By your eyes I can see That you want to be with me I've been waiting for so long Now that I've found you Ain't no way I'm gonna let you go CHORUS: Let me inside Open up your heart Come on and Let me inside Open up your heart Night is clear, moon is bright Stars are shining everywhere In my arms you'll be safe There's no need to be afraid It's a warm summer night And the temperature is right Let your hair hang low Girl, I want to feel the flow I've been waiting for so long Now that I've got you Ain't no way I'm gonna let you go CHORUS

Slippin' Away

AZIATIX "Nocturnal"
[Verse Ia] I don’t want you to go even if you’re tellin’ me You’ve gotten over me girl Cuz lately I realized without you I can’t live another day [Verse Ib (Rap)] So do we try to make this work or do we part ways Cuz as much as it hurts, what we have’s worth all the pain flowing through the blood in my veins And it’s not enough, feel the melody of love through the beat of my heart We can never be apart, from the lands to the seas, to the stars, wherever you are [Chorus I] Girl just hear me out, cuz I got somethin’ to say You hear me callin’ but still walkin’ away This pain inside just won’t go away Babe I can’t watch you slippin’ away [Verse IIa (Rap)] Dark Man X, I’m slipping Grip on my heart, tapped out from submission Better provision is what her heart’s wishing But she don’t seem to understand my position I admit, I don’t have what it takes To serve and provide what she wants on her plate So I put her in place, then I’m closing the gates Locking the chains, no intention to wait, wait [Verse IIb] Should’ve treated you better Had I known from the start There’d be distance between us I would have kept us from growin’ apart And I apologize I’d do whatever that it takes girl If I can keep you from goin’ away [Chorus II] Girl just hear me out, cuz I got somethin’ to say You hear me callin’ but still walkin’ away This pain inside just won’t go away Babe I can’t watch you slippin’ away [Bridge] Girl did you really get over me I won’t find another ‘nother Cuz I need you here close to me My one and only lover lover What I gotta do for you to stay My heart beats for you night and day Fallen astray the day you’ve gone away, girl [Chorus III] Girl just hear me out, cuz I got somethin’ to say You hear me callin’ but still walkin’ away This pain inside just won’t go away Babe I can’t watch you slippin’ away I don’t want you to go even if you’re tellin’ me You’ve gotten over me girl
