Taylor Jay Satterfield - The Circus


Baby I've been out for so long
Longer now than I was in
And I ain't sayin' that I'm some cowboy
Right now I'd go back again
Lord I'm so thankful for my family
For my wife and my two kids
Oh but most nights I thank God
They don't know where I've been

Where we painted on our faces
Where we learned to walk the wire
Where they fed us just like lions
And they watched us jump through fire

The way we walked around in circles
The way we worked into the ground
Well I may not miss the circus

But I damn sure miss the clowns
Oh damn I miss those clowns


So that's why you find me out here
In a place you'll never fill
And I know that you don't understand
And I pray you never will

Where we painted on our faces
Where we learned to walk the wire
Where they fed us just like lions
And they watched us jump through fire

The way we walked around in circles
The way we worked into the ground
Well I may not miss the circus

The way they fed us just like lions
The way they watched us jump through fire
But when they taught us we were fearless men

Well they turned us into liars

The way we walked around in circles
The way they trained us just like hounds
Well I may not miss the circus

But I damn sure miss the clowns

Oh I may not miss the circus

But I will always be a clown
