Even though I still sting 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 learning to live
And forgive and let go, as no sweet revenge
As loves angry end and we all need to know

When the last curtain falls with a final goodbye
And the bitter cold darkness of night flash the days of our life
With the silence so loud we can feel it all
There's no reason or cause to cheer or applaud when the last curtain falls

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 that I'm hearin' you echo
The thoughts of my soul, the justice of time
It's not really mine and I want you to know

When the last curtain falls with a final goodbye
And the bitter cold darkness of night flash the days of our life
With the 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
