Burl Ives - A Little Bitty Tear

BURL IVES - A Little Bitty Tear

THE TEARS I HIDE

A friend on Facebook said something about tears, I can't remember exactly what. It made me think about hiding tears. The usual suspects are all here, clown, jester, me!

THE TEARS I HIDE

look at the clown
he’s playing the fool
they’re all laughing
the painted rouge
pretends to smile

they don't see behind his eyes
they don't see the tears he hides

look at that girl
dressed to the nines
makeup is perfect
the white powder
hiding the lines

they don't see behind her eyes
they don't see the tears she hides

look at the Jester
jokes for the crowd
knowing the tricks
to win your heart
and take you in

they don't see behind his eyes
they don't see the tears he hides

just look at me
come with a smile
outside I'm laughing
but torn up inside
I'm torn inside

you don't see behind my eyes
you don't see the tears I hide

they don't see behind their eyes
they don't see the tears they hide
