expecting me to be funny

expecting me to be sad

laughing and fading all over the ring

playing my old violin

I´m giving the clown

but I´m feeling so down

my wounded soul

and my silly red nose

I have nothing to loose

in my oversized shoes

and no one noticed the tears

and no one noticed the fears

my accidental lumbering

my sentimental slumbering

how can I feel – how can I be – how can I see

how can I feel – how can I be ----- funny

Breathy emotional delivery of a masterful composition. Lots of detailed touches in the instrumentation keep it interesting and moody even when those fabulous vocals stop. Everybody involved in this should be proud of their contribution. Once again I started the download before the song was finished playing. Thanks for making it available. Release ready.

Hats off to Melani. Great job reading the lyrics and wrestling every bit of emotion out of the experience.
Fred, this one just needs a venue. Great job on the production, the bass player is dancing...

Tension filled opening. Fine melody and lyrics. Really impressive arrangement. Great work on all the instruments, Freddy. Love the piano. Melani gives an impressive, emotion filled vocal performance but I must admit that I found the overt breaths and sibilance quite distracting. Great song, though. Thanks, you two.

the other compliments and comments. One of the best I listened to at MJ in 2016, maybe the best. Mature and developed song writing, musical arrangement, and production. Results in a high caliber song which this is.
