The Show by Kim Edwards

Singer Kim Edwards put out a music video for her song “The Show” off her Wanderlust album. She utilizes public domain footage from the circus to illustrate the lyrics such as “I watched you walk a high tight-rope/ The net below your only hope/And when you fell you said it was a joke/ And we knew the show was over.” Will you like what you see under the big top? You can get the track on The Show - The Show - Single or amazon.

The 24-year-old, East Coast-raised singer-songwriter began taking piano lessons at 4 years old and grew up listening to a healthy dose of everything from The Beach Boys to Mozart to Billy Joel. Founded on mellow piano tones with an appreciation for acoustic pop, Kim’s style is often compared to artists such as Ingrid Michaelson and Regina Spektor (with a hint of the Beatles).

Lyrics to The Show by Kim Edwards

What are you waiting for?
Turn off the lights and close the door
Were you expecting something more?
The show, the show is over

The curtain fell, were you surprised
To find my makeup was my disguise?
When did you finally realize
The show, the show is over

There’s nothing more to see
Just a portrait of you
And a picture of me
There’s nothing more to be
So let’s pack up the tent and close
The show

We won’t pretend it wasn’t there
The lights and the sounds, the crowds at the fair
All the laughs we didn’t share
And I knew the show was over

I watched you walk a high tight-rope
The net below your only hope
And when you fell you said it was a joke
And we knew the show was over

*chorus*

The time has come to board the train
The band has played its last refrain
Sawdust and memories are all that remain
Our show, our show is over

*chorus*
