      About "The Comedians"

      Lyrics for Roy Orbison - "The Comedians"

      I sat there alone upon the ferris wheel
      A pastel colored carriage in the air
      I thought you'd leave me dangling for a little while
      A silly twist upon a childish dare

      Below I saw you whispering to another man
      Who held the lever that could bring me down
      He'd stop the world from turning at your command
      It's always something cruel that laughter drowns

      And I'm up while the dawn is breaking
      Even though my heart is aching
      I should be drinking a toast
      To absent friends
      Instead of these comedians

      I can hardly hear the music from the carousel
      The wind picks up, the carriage starts sway
      As one by one the lights go out
      It's closing time
      I see you take his hand and walk away walk away

      They say that you will always be the last to know
      They say that all that glitters is not gold
      It's not just that you're never coming back to me
      It's the bitter way that I was told

      And I'm up while the dawn is breaking
      Even though my heart is aching
      I should be drinking a toast
      To absent friends
      Instead of these comedians
