[Verse 1:]

Ohhh, oooo...

The flowers are all faded now
Along with your letters
They will never see the light of day
Cause I'll never take them out
And there's no turning back
It's for the better
Baby I deserve more than empty words
And promises
I believed everything you said
And I give you the best I had
Oh.

[Chorus:]
So take a bow (bow)
Cause you've taken everything else (else)
You played the part
Like a star you played it so well (played it so well)
Take a bow (take a bow)
Cause this scene is coming to an end (end)
I gave you love
All you give me was pretend
So now take a bow...

[Verse 2:]
The future's about to change
Before you know it
The curtain closes
Take a look around
There's no one in the crowd
I'm throwing away the pain
And you should know that your performance
Made me strong enough

[Chorus:]
So take a bow (bow)
Cause you've taken everything else (else)
You played the part
Like a star you played it so well (played it so well)
Take a bow (take a bow)
Cause this scene is coming to an end (end)
I gave you love.
All you give me was pretend
So now take a bow...

[Hook:]
Well it must have been slight of hand
Cause I still can't understand
How I could never see
Just what a fool believed
Mmmm

But the lies they start to show
Tell me how does it feels to know
Right now that I wont be around
So baby before I put you out

[Chorus:]
Take a bow
Cause you've takin everything else (you've takin everything else)
You played the part like a star you played it so well (so well)
Take a bow
Cause this scene is coming to an end (End)
I gave you love.
All you gave me was pretend
So now take a bow

Take a bow
Cause you've taken everything else
You played the part (I gave you all my love) like I star you played it so well (I gave you all my love)
Take a bow
Cause this scene is coming to an end
I gave you love. (Ohhhh)
All you give me was pretend
So now take a bow

    This song means alot to me because alot of people I'm sure have gone through all this. It talks about how she gave him everything and he played her like a board game or something. I think that if she can deal with a player like that she can do anyhting.

    She saved her love for a one person that she likes. He screwed up and try to act like he likes you. She was all confused what going on. She then realize he being complete dum. He played his part to hurt the girl by pretending. So basically she had to play along with his stupid mind games.

    A man are like that to treat a woman wrong.
