"Stole the Show (feat. Parson James)" as written by and Marli Harwood Kyrre Gorvell-dahll....
Darling, darling, oh, turn the lights back on now
Watching, watching, as the credits all roll down
Crying, crying, you know we're playing to a full house, house

No heroes, villains, one to blame
While wilted roses fill the stage
And the thrill, the thrill is gone
Our debut was a masterpiece
But in the end for you and me
Oh, the show, it can't go on

We used to have it all, but now's our curtain call
So hold for the applause, oh
And wave out to the crowd, and take our final bow
Oh, it's our time to go, but at least we stole the show
At least we stole the show
At least we stole the show
At least we stole the show
At least we stole the show

At least we stole the show

Darling, darling, you know that we are sold out
This is fading, but the band plays on now
We're crying, crying, so let the velvet roll down, down

No heroes, villains, one to blame
While wilted roses fill the stage
And the thrill, the thrill is gone
Our debut was a masterpiece
Our lines we read so perfectly
But the show, it can't go on

We used to have it all, but now's our curtain call
So hold for the applause, oh
And wave out to the crowd, and take our final bow
Oh, it's our time to go, but at least we stole the show
At least we stole the show
At least we stole the show
At least we stole the show
Stole the show

At least we stole the show
Stole the show
At least we stole the show

    My InterpretationHi there, I'm just going to present these in the order I feel they make the most sense. While not immediately apparent, I feel this is definitely a breakup song. We used to play this every time after our speech tournaments, and while I would love to just think that this can be taken either way, it is really a breakup song.

    The refrain is where we get the most out of this song.
    Its telling us that their relationship is heading downhill, and while it was fun in the beginning, its just kind of over now. 'There's nobody to blame for our relationship going down, and while everybody thinks its going fine, there is just nothing between us anymore. When we started out, it was fantastic, something i want to remember, but it just died out, and there really is nothing left in the end'

    The chorus tells us just a bit more on what the refrain did. 'it was a great experience, but that was then, this was now. We knew this was going to happen eventually, we shouldn't hide it from our friends/family anymore. This is it, and even though this was a fantastic journey and I'll remember it for the rest of my life, it's time to let go.'

    The first verse doesn't tell us much, But it could be referring to the events immediately after the other lyrics. 'we are both crying, everybody is watching, wondering why it didn't work out.'

    The second verse is equally vague. I find it very easy to feel like these verses are afterthoughts or the events preceding. 'darling, you know its over and you knew it had to happen eventually, but the world moves on, and it is a depressing time for us, we are crying and we are sad, but its time to move on.

    General CommentPretty self explanatory. A killer debut performance and now it's over and they brought the house down.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a relationship between two people coming to an end. He's singing about how it was a good relationship while it lasted and even though it is coming to an end, let's have one last good time together hence 'the show it can't go on'. He is comparing his relationship ending to the end of a show.
