"At The End Of A Show" as written by Benjamin Byrne, James Paul Stelfox, James Milne Walsh and Barry Westhead....
Some souls get lost forever
Some love will leave you never
I found myself somewhere alone

I thought I did it your way
I left the crooked pathway
But now I broke the happy home

Where did that child come from?
Lost in the sea of song
How did a whole life grow
At the end of a show?

Two lives got lost together
We found the strangest weather
I'll never leave this world alone

You know I tried my hardest
To keep it out of your wrist
I'll never break this happy home

Where did that child come from?
Lost in the burst of song
How did a whole life grow
At the end of a show?

So I get slow for a while
Over and over and
I see the child, see it smile
Over and over and
Oh I'll get sly for a while
Over and over and
I see the lie, see it smile
Over and over and
I've got a life for a while
Over and over and
I see the sign of your smile
Over and over and

    General CommentI think this song is about somebody discovering a life that they'd always had but had never known it- in a good way

    General CommentSounds like the speaker had sex with a girl and got her pregnant during a concert, and has decided to marry her. Sounds like he's looking back on his life and thinking about the time he got her pregnant.

    The part where he says, "but now i've broke the happy home" sounds like he's referring to ruining her family when they found out that she was pregnant. Or at least her parents getting pissed at him and her.

    The part where he says, "I'll never break this happy home" Seems like he's referring to the new family they have started. Declaring that I'll never leave you or the child, or hurt either one of you.
