The Vogue Archive: “Clown”


So I was listening to some of Frank Ocean’s music on YouTube and I thought about how it felt to write a brutally honest song. I haven’t done it in a while, but I remembered a song I wrote in college, which I felt fit into the category of being brutally honest. I’m not speaking in terms of bashing someone, but in terms of  putting your honest feelings out there without embellishment. Here’s mine, its called “Clown.”

You see the pain never leaves

It just quietly hides

And no one understands

Why you’re afraid to go outside

When you enter into a world

And find a love that’s all new

And it becomes your world

The only thing that loves you

 

But then its taken away

All of a suddenly

No proper explanation

You were left alone to breathe

And you got an attitude

You’re so confused

Everything’s fell down

But you paint on a smile and become a clown

 

You see the rain is there

It’s coming out the cloud

You feel it everywhere

But you really don’t know how

And every inch of your body

Flinches in pain

And your eyes won’t stop crying

You just hear songs that say…

 

He was taken away

All of a suddenly

No proper explanation

I was left alone to breathe

And I got an attitude

I’m so confused

Everything’s fell down

So I paint on a smile and become a clown
