Lyrics: Stage

A tale of sorrow, of broken hearts and regret

And how tomorrow, I'll write off my Juliet

Without circumstance, I sweared I'd never leave you

But we live a veiled romance

All the misperception

How heavy the lies weigh


And I've gotten back in the way

I should've left things as they are

Now I step aside

As you take the stage

And the band plays on


And the show must go on as I've played my final song

We've shared the spotlight together for too long

As I exit to the right, the lines you will recite

Strike the chord and close the curtain one last time


These words have cast a brand new light

Over every moment

This tragedy at hand

There is no excuse

No rest for the wicked


I'd take it back

Everything to stay here

But I know my time has passed

All my ghosts will haunt me

Serenity won't last


And I've gotten back in the way

I should've left things as they are

Now I step aside

As you take the stage

And the band plays on


And the show must go on as I've played my final song

We've shared the spotlight together for too long

As I exit to the right, the lines you will recite

Strike the chord and close the curtain one last time


A hush falls on the crowd

The lights are dimming down

A few last words before, I take my final bow


And I've swallowed all my pride

I've known it all this time

Was bound to lose it all


It's hard to say goodbye

Lost all the years I tried

My fate, my downfall


Could ask for reasons why

No answers will I find

A silence to befall


My well it has run dry

No more words that I can write

This is goodbye
