The Right Place:
9. The Cowboy and the Clown

Well look out honey, he's coming in hot
Shooting like a star in the Western sky
Looking for a place to crash and burn
And it's your turn
Well next thing you know he's coming in low
Saying he ain't got nowhere else to go
You open your heart and he stumbles on in, leaves you dry again

There's a guy here on white horse, riding through your mind
He's the man you always wanted, but just can't seem to find
But you're afraid to be alone, and this guy keeps coming around
So you give up on the cowboy and settle for a clown
Who drags you down

Well you look in the mirror in the middle of the night
Counting every flaw in the fluorescent light
You beat yourself up more than he ever will
When we get your fill

There's a guy here on white horse, riding through your mind
He's the man you always wanted, but just can't seem to find
But you're afraid to be alone, and this guy keeps coming around
So you give up on the cowboy and settle for a clown
Who's dragging you down

Well how you gonna fly holding that stone?
If this is love, then you're better off alone
Sometimes it comes down to sink or swim
Save yourself or go down with him

Look out honey, he's coming in hot
