"Sad Clown" as written by and Sarah Ann Mclachlan....
A time so haunting moonlight in the mist
Lay me down beside you oh as long as it lasts
From the river comes a figure
Drifting slowly by
Trailing long the water leaving softer
Than a sigh softer than a sigh

All the feelings they remain like a
Still life a dying swansong forever
Lost your cries of glory
The rain is falling down like silence
In a shroud
When all that really matters left to
Loose I'm all alone I'm all alone

All the feelings they remain like a still
Life a dying swansong forever lost your
Cries of glory
Walking from the shadows a fear of
Sadness grows
Your heart is in your hands your knowing

Our time is gone
My time is gone
Swans dying song

    General CommentAbout a great love lost. Swan's mate for life. This love was, for the speaker -- a true love..something they thought would last forever, but they are left heart broken. This is their song to the lover lost.
