everything's so still
I think the wind is watching
from its north-west window sill
looking straight ahead
I feel a bit to far for comfort
won't you take my hand
I hope this is only the end of the show
and we all get leading roles

the doors we close behind
there never locked and always drafty
hands, hearts and brains are irreparably changed
and many miles down the road
on a night that's dark and stormy
we'll be sold to the sky
in a violent flash of light

well I thought the set was real
till our friends went to their dressing rooms
and I felt the cardboard trees
so now here we are
we're all alone and naked
neath these white florescent stars
I hope this is only the end of the show
and we all get leading roles

the doors we close behind
their never locked and always drafty
hands, hearts and brains are irreparably changed
and many miles down the road
on a night that's dark and stormy
we'll be sold to the sky
in a violent flash of light
and our laundry will swing on the line

a story told, the credits roll
the lights are up its time to go
<4 times>

the doors we close behind
there never locked and always drafty
hands, hearts and brains are irreparably changed
and many miles down the road
on a night that is dark and stormy
well be sold to the sky
in a violent flash of light
and our laundry will swing on the line

yeah we'll swing on the line
the story told, the credits roll
the lights are up its time to go
<4 times>
