Circus (Song w/ Iluminar's Lyrics)

IMPORTANT!!! I'm going to recontribute this soon using approved intro samples, seeing as how one of them is not creative commons. In the meantime, please let me know if you plan to use this REC for any monetized project, and maybe the intro can be omitted in that case.

Iluminar and I have been kicking some ideas around lately (or rather she's been letting me in on her ideas), and this is the first collab to come of our brainmeldings. Upon reading her Circus lyrics, I immediately began plunking around on the ol' guitfiddle and came up with some fun things, including a tweaked melody for the big finale, which I'm sure most of you will recognize =)


 


138 BPM. Stems available upon request. Have much enjoyings!!

LYRICS:


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


And 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 the frills


Because all that's left


When the canvas falls


Is an ordinary girl


Without the feathers and the pearls


 


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
