Stole The Show

Lyrics

playDarling, darling, oh,
playturn the lights back on now
playWatching, watching,
playas the credits all roll down
playCrying, crying,
playyou know we're playing to a full house, house

playNo heroes, villains, one to blame
playWhile wilted roses fill the stage
playAnd the thrill, the thrill is gone
playOur debut was a masterpiece
playBut in the end for you and me
playOh, the show, it can't go on

playWe used to have it all,
playbut now's our curtain call
playSo hold for the applause, oh
playAnd wave out to the crowd,
playand take our final bow
playOh, it's our time to go,
playbut at least we stole the show
playAt least we stole the show
playAt least we stole the show
playAt least we stole the show
playAt least we stole the show

playAt least we stole the show

playDarling, darling,
playyou know that we are sold out
playThis is fading, but the band plays on now
playWe're crying, crying,
playso let the velvet roll down, down

playNo heroes, villains, one to blame
playWhile wilted roses fill the stage
playAnd the thrill, the thrill is gone
playOur debut was a masterpiece
playOur lines we read so perfectly
playBut the show, it can't go on

playWe used to have it all,
playbut now's our curtain call
playSo hold for the applause, oh
playAnd wave out to the crowd,
playand take our final bow
playOh, it's our time to go,
playbut at least we stole the show
playAt least we stole the show
playAt least we stole the show
playAt least we stole the show
playStole the show

playAt least we stole the show
playStole the show
playAt least we stole the show

Play with the song, fill the gaps

meaningMeaning

The singer wrote this ballad using a triumphant theater show as a metaphor for the ending of a great relationship.

He recalled to VMan:

"Everyone was begging me to write a ballad, and I was not trying to write one because I didn't think I had been in love before. But I wrote this ballad, it was about this guy that I was not in a relationship with, and pretended like we were. We would just be with each other when it was convenient."
