Young man with a stone to throw Take a breath and just let
it go Angry man with a cross to bare Now you seem
life just isn’t fair Oh, let it go Cos, you wake up
in happy days Face the music In your eyes
you've made your bed Read what the papers say
Your dancing days are over The smile on your face
will never hide your shame You can't escape what they
say Your dancing days are over The ghosts you see
are shouting out your name Oh how you danced Oh how you sang There's a feeling here that you
began Oh how you stood and stared Held onto every
breath It seemed the world stood still Transfixed by
every step Oh, let it go Cos a lesser man
would be your crowd Captivation, lesser men will tear you
down Read what the papers say Your dancing
days are over The smile on your face will never hide your
shame You can't escape what they say Your
dancing days are over The ghosts you see are shouting out
your name The ghosts you see are shouting out your
name The very crowd demand it's not to blame The demi man celebrates his pain So glad to be with him
through your pain Old man sings his final song And wonders where it all went wrong Read what the
papers say Your dancing days are over The smile on
your face will never hide your shame You can't escape
what they say Your dancing days are over The ghosts
you see are shouting out your name Read what the
papers say Your dancing days are over The smile on
your face will never hide your shame You can't escape
what they say Your dancing days are over The ghosts
you see are shouting out your name The ghosts you
see are shouting out your name The very crowd demands
it's not to blame The demi man celebrates his pain
So glad to be with us through your pain
