This life's a play from the start It's hard to play through a part When there's an ache in your heart all day I have my dreams 'til the dawn I wake to find they are gone But still the play must go on, they say When I pretend I'm gay I never feel that way I'm only painting the clouds with sunshine When I hold back a tear To make a smile appear I'm only painting the clouds with sunshine Painting the blues, beautiful hues Coloured with gold and old rose Playing the clown, trying to drown all of my woes Though things may not look bright They'll all turn out alright If I keep painting the clouds with sunshine (Instrumental Break) Painting the blues, beautiful hues Coloured with gold and old rose Playing the clown, trying to drown all of my woes Though things may not look bright They'll all turn out alright If I keep painting the clouds with sunshine (Contributed by Bill Huntley - November 2005) (Updated by Mel Priddle - April 2015)
