Lyrics

play Darling, darling, oh,
play turn the   back on now
play Watching, watching,
play as the   all roll down
play Crying, crying,
play you know we're playing to a   house, house

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

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

play At least we stole the show

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

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

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

play stole the show
play Stole the show
play stole the show

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."
