"Promise Me" as written by Michael Gulley Kevin, Gregory Frenard Hutchison, Anthony Stewart and Luther Vandross....
Now if there's a smile on my face
it's only there tryin' to fool the public
but when it comes down to foolin' you;
Now honey, that's quite a different subject

But don't let my glad expression
give you the wrong impression
Really I'm sad
I'm sadder than sad
You're gone and I'm hurtin' so bad
Like a clown I pretend to be glad

Now there's some sad things known to man
but ain't too much sadder than
the tears of a clown
when there's no one around

Now if I appear to be carefree
it's only to camouflage my sadness
In order to keep my pride I try
to cover the hurt with a show of gladness

But don't let my show convince you
that I've been happy since you
decided to go
Oh, I need you so
I'm hurt and I want you to know

Now there's some sad things known to man
but ain't too much sadder than
the tears of a clown
when there's no one around

Just like Pagliacci did
I try to keep my sadness hid
(aaargh! I can't remember! It'll come to me and I'll send it
along.)
But in my lonely room I cry
the tears of a clown
when there's no one around
