What's the long face
What's all the crying for
Didn't you expect it?
When you opened your door

To the man with the long coat
And the long list of victims
Everybody watching knows
He's the one keeping the score

From where she sits
Everyone stands in judgment
And people watching as the curtain falls down
See the lights do a long, slow fade

The show goes on
And the sad-eyed sisters go walking on
Everyone watching all along
The show goes on
As the autumn's coming and the summer's all gone
Still without you, the show goes on

Some say, "She's alright"
Some say, "She'll never learn"
Some rush into things
Some stand and wait their turn

I've been here all along
Standing here all this time
But you never noticed
Is that the same tired flames burn

From where I sit
Everyone stands in judgment
Everybody watching as the curtain falls down
See the lights do a long, slow fade

The show goes on
And the sad-eyed sisters go walking on
Everyone watching all along
The show goes on
As the autumn's coming and the summer's all gone
Still without you, the show goes on

Time is passing
Slowly passing you by
You better try, try to find it
Before it passes you by

As I watch you walking to another cold dawn
And you keep on walking
And you keep on talking
Talking all along

From where she sits
Everyone stands in judgment
Everybody watching as the curtain falls down
Woah, see the lights do a long, slow fade

The show goes on
And the sad-eyed sisters go walking on
Everyone watching all along
The show goes on
As the autumn's coming and the summer's all gone
Still without you, the show goes on

Woah, the summer's all gone
Still without you, the show goes on
Oh, oh, oh, and the summer's all gone
Still without you, the show goes on
