A Clown for You

Some think I am so rational!
Too sane to be the type to have fun.
But for you I can be sensational,
Before the next evening has begun.
I'll paint my face, dress colorful,
Sing loudly and laugh, all for you.
Don't worry, I won't be bashful,
I will make your dreams come true.
Wild and crazy, perfectly mad,
Ready for mischief never to cease.
Baby, if you are feeling so sad,
I can dance for you, and also tease.
Your madness touches me inside,
Inspiring me to heights most grand.
Why should I want to ever hide,
The feelings that within me demand.
I have to laugh, I have to scream,
Because this world has broken me!
I want to walk in a perfect dream,
One where you keep me company.
Life is a circus, Kara, so let us play!
Until night's curtain falls over day.

I am a clown for you, I smile!
Wearing bright colors as a harlequin.
I just know you adore my style,
Since we share many a common sin.
Let us play with this sad world,
And turn all its' frowns upside-down.
I will be loud and never demure,
When I dress in my blood red gown.
Time to dance and rave like fools,
With every word, a deeper meaning.
Our fire is too hot, it never cools,
Like a star when it is first gleaming.
I paint half my gown a deep blue,
Giggling with every act I perform.
The child in me is delighted true,
While the fire keep me very warm.
Let us light up all this universe,
And party like it is the apocalypse!
Sing along with my every verse,
And we'll laugh until the fire quits.
Life is a circus, Kara, so let us cheer!
Up until the very final act is near.
