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 :)

**5/30/14-Checkout the TheLastDomino's beatiful rendition here
