Even though I still sting from the words that you threw at me
There's no pleasure at all from watching you fall to your knees
'Cause the tables have turned
And I'm finally learning to live and forgive and let go
There's no sweet revenge at loves angry end and we all need to know.

When the last curtain falls with a final goodbye
And the bitter cold darkness of night flood the days of our livee
With the silence so loud we can't feel it all
There's no reason or cause to cheer or applaud
When the last curtain falls.

--- Instrumental ---

The irony is that you're wearing the look I once wore
And in truth I've longed for this moment to settle the score
But it's not all that clear now that I'm hearin' you echo
The thoughts of my soul, the justice of time
It's not really mine and I want you to know.

When the last curtain falls with a final goodbye
And the bitter cold darkness of night flood the days of our lives
With the silence so loud we can feel it all
There's no reason or cause to cheer or applaud
When the last curtain falls.

There's no reason or cause to cheer or applaud
When the last curtain falls...
