"The Curtain Falls" as written by and Charles Alexander Haddon....
Since, we have been together
My thoughts are rarely ever
Been moments from your side
But now, the final curtain's calling
And I'll be gone by morning
It's time to say goodbye

My life's too short to wonder why
I'll carry on all five
But I'm leaving now cause that's my right

Cause I am headed on a course
And I can't believe you're mine
Am I so mad to leave this all behind?
Had it been a different way, had it been another time
You'd be standin here with me, our hearts entwined

Still, it hurts for me to leave you,
I'll do what all the trees do, and bluff that I'll be fine
And hold, on to all our memories
At least they can protect me from the sadness now inside

My life's too short to wonder why
I'll carry on all five
And I'm leavin now cause that's my right

Cause I am headed on a course
And I can't believe you're mine
Am I so mad to leave this all behind?
Had it been a different way, had it been another time
You'd be standin here with me our hearts entwined

Protect yourself, live happily, be honest in forgettin' me
I've never wished for you to ever have to feel this way
You know how I'm leavin' now
My gutter balls, I take my bow
And I only promise you I wish I'd stay

Cause I am headed on a course
And I can't believe you're mine
Am I so mad to leave this all behind?
Had it been a different way, had it been another time
You'd be standin' here with me our hearts entwined

    General CommentSo I think this song is about a person who has everything (including a girl who he can't believe he has) but feels like he needs to leave and pursue his dreams. If it was in another time or place, things would have been different.
