Circus of one

Collaborators: 

Liner Notes: 

You talk a good story. And boy, am I ever gullible!! I’ll give it to ya, you know how to pick your marks Sad

Lyrics: 

So you confided in me. Didn’t you?
And you gave it to me straight. Didn’t you?
One hundred per cent honesty.
Never one hint of irony.
Always. Always.

No!
You Fooled me once, and you fooled me twice.
So many times, I’m a fool for life.
I was blinded by the show you put on.
Stripped bare and completely undone.
Took some time but I finally caught on.
You’re the Ringleader in a circus of one.

Took some time but I finally caught on.
You’re the Ringleader in a circus of one.

Said you’d take care of my heart. Didn’t you?
Future laid out on a plate. Didn’t you?
One hundred percent authentic.
And your conscience so majestic.
Always. Always.

No!
You Fooled me once, and you fooled me twice.
So many times, I’m a fool for life.
I was blinded by the show you put on.
Stripped bare and completely undone.
Took some time but I finally caught on.
You’re the Ringleader in a circus of one.

Took some time but I finally caught on.
You’re the Ringleader in a circus of one.

I got sucked in by your charm. Didn’t I?
Hook, line, sinker. Took the bait. Didn’t I?
One million percent bought into.
How you said I could believe you.
Always. Always.

No!
You Fooled me once, and you fooled me twice.
So many times, I’m a fool for life.
I was blinded by the show you put on.
Stripped bare and completely undone.
Took some time but I finally caught on.
You’re the Ringleader in a circus of one.

Took some time but I finally caught on.
You’re the Ringleader in a circus of one.

And I’m the clown.

And I’m the clown.

But you’re still the star of the show!

You Fooled me once, and you fooled me twice.
So many times, I’m a fool for life.
I was blinded by the show you put on.
Stripped bare and completely undone.
Took some time but I finally caught on.
You’re the Ringleader in a circus of one.

Took some time but I finally caught on.
You’re the Ringleader in a circus of one.

You’re the Ringleader in a circus of one.
