  • I guess it's funnier from where you're standing
    'Cause from over here I miss the joke
    Clear the way for my crash landing
    I've done it again
    Another number for your notes

    I'd be smiling if I wasn't so desperate
    I'd be patient if I had the time
    I could stop and answer all of your questions
    As soon as I find out
    How I can move from the back of the line

    I'll be your clown
    Behind the glass
    Go 'head and laugh
    'Cause it's funny
    I would too if I saw me
    I'll be your clown
    On your favorite channel
    My life's a circus, circus
    Round in circle
    I'm selling out tonight

    I'd be less angry if it was my decision
    And the money was just rolling in
    If I had more than my ambition
    I'll have time for please
    I'll have time for thank you
    As soon as I win

    I'll be your clown
    Behind the glass
    Go 'head and laugh
    'Cause it's funny
    I would too if I saw me
    I'll be your clown
    On your favorite channel
    My life's a circus, circus
    Round in circus
    I'm selling out tonight

    From a distance my choice is simple
    From a distance I can entertain
    So you can see me
    I put makeup on my face
    But there's no way you can feel it
    From so far away

    I'll be your clown
    Behind the glass
    Go 'head and laugh
    'Cause it's funny
    I would too if I saw me
    I'll be your clown
    On your favorite channel
    My life's a circus, circus
    Round in circles
    I'm selling out tonight Writer/s: EMELI SANDE, EMILE SANDE, GRANT MITCHELL, SHAHID KHAN
