LYRIC

Tarot And The Banjo

Still can’t help but feelin’ like some sorry little clown
When the circus tent is empty and nobody is around
So I dream of sky and ocean and a little plot of ground
The sounds that spin upon the day
Only wanted to play

Your goddamn sorrow was bringin’ me down
Your vision of tomorrow was too high above the ground
The mission to the meadow has been taken to the town
To scare all the children away
To scare the little children away

Couldn’t stay there longer while you held yourself to blame
Didn’t want to be the one who lost himself insane again
But I knew that it would look like I had betrayed a friend
Only wanted to play
I was just feelin’ that way

You know the same things happen anyway
No matter what the other people always say
Don’t let them bring you down into their funny little game
You know all that ever was still remains the same

Still can’t help but feelin’ like some sorry little clown
I left you in the water and I knew that you could drown
Now my castles tumble down
Sorry I went that way that day
Only wanted to play

Still can’t help but feelin’ like some sorry little clown
When the circus tent is empty and nobody is around
So I dream of sky and ocean and a little plot of ground
Sounds that spin upon the day
Only wanted to play
