Intro
What�ll you do when the people go home
What�ll you do when the show is all done

Deacon
I can�t
I won�t
I, No

Verse:1 - Deacon
I�m 25 now, year I told my pops I�d toss the towel in
Making music no longer easily makes my smile bend
Though, �wow�s� from the crowd�s ain�t end yet
Them smiles and back pats still ain�t helping the rent checks
Ain�t far from crack packs if I hursh these verse
Flippin words shit for an empty purse feels worthless
Listen, word of mouth done been a blessin and a curse
We reach heads but the only bread we see�s off shirt sales
Tours and shows spread all over the earth, well
Recoup gas and hotels, back to this dirt, Hell�s
Far away though, believe I ain�t complaining
Rather explaining, that unless this southern rain end
We�ll show proof we�s as real as you
Needing a roof, some shoes, dolla bills and food
Two from The Dirty met with mismatched skin
Acknowledged first that one day this track may end
When there�s no more steam in that engine
Yet hopefully clean streams be an astringent
But needs outweigh cheese tryna stay in contention
�For the love� is a hard reason to keep my life in suspension
�For the love� is a hard reason to keep my life in suspension
Kno
�For the love� is a hard reason to keep our lives in suspension, yeah

Hook
What do you do when the people go home
And what do you do when the show is all done
I know what I�ll do in the alone of my time
But what will I do with the leftover wine

What�ll you do, lay it down
What�ll you do, lay it down, lay it down, lay it down again

    Lyric CorrectionThe lyrics are wrong. This song samples two songs by singer-songwriter Melanie Safka, "Candles in the Rain" and "Leftover Wine", both of those songs are from her 1970 album "Candles in the Rain".

    The correct lyrics (from Leftover Wine) are:

    "What do you do when the people go home
    and what do you do when the show is all done
    I know what I'll do in the alone of my time
    But what will I do with the leftover wine"
