From the album Curtains

Lyrics

Please don't ever tell me that you're sorry
Cause that would bring it all back again
I tried to tell her that you did not call me
But my soul's too old to dress up and pretend

And you don't feel the sting
Of the songs that I sing

The curtains closed
The sun has set
The wells run dry
My blood ran red
The curtains closed
The spotlight fades
We didn't know
It was the final page

Please don't ever pass me on the sidewalk
Cause I would have to ask you how you've been
And I may tell you that you did not love me
And you may tell me that you really did

But you don't feel the sting
Of the songs that I sing

The curtains closed
The sun has set
The wells run dry
My blood ran red
The curtains closed
The spotlight fades
We didn't know
It was the final page

And I always try
To rewrite our lines
To close out our scene
Like we do in my dreams
But it will be you
Till somebody else
Takes me off of the shelf

I wish that I could tell you I was sorry
