Old black clown

I see your smooth
And shiny white skin
I kiss your face
lost in a dream
I whisper our song
La la la la

A faded cloud
Now covers the sun
Frames of this life
Make me feel down
The rain this pain
An old black clown insane
That’s what I am
La la la la

I dance alone
Hiding me from the world
you are still there
so near and so far
too late too soon
your time is the end
I scream my nothing
La la la la

If you are flying so high
It’s because I wanted this for you
If you are now divine
You have to thank this man that loves you

I’ve shot you down now
You are laying in the ground
You are so mine now
Just only mine
You are the rainbow
That’s crossing the sky
And I’m your sun
La la la la

If you are flying so high
It’s because I wanted this for you
If you are now divine
You have to thank this man that loves you
La la la la
