Even though it still hurts 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 learnin'
To live, forgive and let go
There's no sweet revenge
At love's angry end
And we all need to know

When the last curtain falls with a final goodbye
And the bitter cold darkness of night
Floods the days of our lives
With a silence so loud we can't feel at all
There's no reason or cause
To cheer or applaud
When the last curtain falls

Well, 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 hearing
You echo the thoughts of my soul
The justice of time Is really not mine
And I want you to know

When the last curtain falls with a final goodbye
And the bitter cold darkness of night
Floods the days of our lives
With a silence so loud we can't feel at 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
