When the Last Curtain Falls Lyrics

by Patty Loveless

Even though it still hurt from the words you threw at me
There's no pleasure at all, I'm watching you fall to your knees
'Cause the tables have turned and I'm finally learning 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

There'll be ironies 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
