i listened to emeli sandé‘s music for the first time this week and thoroughly enjoyed it.  the overall quality of her voice and songs puts her up there with other top artists from across the pond (adele, amy winehouse, corinne bailey raemumford & sons, etc.).  here is emeli performing “clown” during her concert at london’s royal albert hall.  below you’ll find the lyrics as well as the studio version of the track.  let me know what you think of her and which rendition you like better:

I guess it’s funnier from where you’re standing
Cause from over here I missed the joke
Clear the way for my crash landing
I’ve done it again
Another number for your notes

I’d be smiling if I wasn’t so desperate
I’d be patient if I had the time
I could stop and answer all of your questions
As soon as I find out
How I can move from the back of the line

[Chorus:]
I’ll be your clown
Behind the glass
Go ‘head and laugh
Cause it’s funny
I would too if I saw me
I’ll be your clown
On your favourite channel
My life’s a circus circus
Round in circles
I’m selling out tonight

I’d be less angry if it was my decision
And the money was just rolling in
If I had more than my ambition
I’ll have time for ‘Please’
I’ll have time for ‘Thank you’
As soon as I win

[Chorus]

From a distance my choice is simple
From a distance I can entertain
So you can see me
I put make-up on my face
But there’s no way you can feel it
From so far away

[Chorus]
