Circus -Lyrics without a tune (Extended version)

By Iluminar

She shows up like the carnival


All dancing and lights


You follow her down Main Street


Into the night


And the way she smiles


Makes your heart skip a beat


For a moment you're special


Not a vaudeville freak


=


But you should have listened


To the rhythm of the rails


And the truth in the dark


Behind the glitter and frills


Because all that's left 


When the canvas falls


Is an ordinary girl 


Without the feathers and pearls


=


Then come Sunday morning


She'll fade into the dawn


You'll hear that train whistle


But she's already gone


Search the sawdust


But all you will find


Is a fun-house illusion


In the traveling circus of your mind


==


Added lines per TheLastDomino's suggestion for better workability...Should a tune come long :)
