People say I'm the life of the party
'Cause I tell a joke or two
Although I may be laughin' loud and hearty
Deep inside I'm blue

So take a good look at my face
You see my smile looks out of place
If you look closer it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears

I need you, need you

If you see me with another girl
Actin' like I'm havin' fun
Although she may be cute
She's just a substitute
Girl you're the permanent one

Ah, take a good look at my face
You see my smile looks out of place
Now look closer it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears

Outside, I'm masquerading
Inside, my heart is fading
I'm just a clown
Since you put me down
My smile is my makeup
I wear since my breakup with you

Baby, baby, take a good look at my face
You see my smile looks out of place
If you look closer it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears

Baby, baby, baby, take a good look at my face
You see my smile looks out of place
Just look closer it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears

Baby, baby, baby, take a good look at this face
My smile looks out of place
If you look closer it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears
