My Last Line

 

 

(VERSE)

It’s good to see you smile again

When the dogwood flowers in bloom

This time of year I need you near

‘Cause the winter shook me to the bone

 

Now the bands on the skits

I got the shakes from the pills

There’s so much space to fill

So I start with a song and you start to sing along

And somehow it always makes sense

 

(CHORUS)

What time is the show tonight

I need to shine

I gave you my heart to keep safe until it’s time

I’ve got it to give 

Take it when it comes it never lasts forever

Now the curtain is closin’

And here is my last line

 

(VERSE)

I’ve got my leather skin

1,000 shows and empty pens

Show me where to plug it all in

It’s a calling and a cancer

And it spreads without an answer

So I close my eyes and turn it to ten

 

(CHORUS)

What time is the show tonight

I need to shine

I gave you my heart to keep safe until it’s time

I’ve got it to give 

Take it when it comes it never lasts forever

Now the curtain is closin’

And here is my last line

 

What time is the show tonight

I need to shine

I gave you my heart to keep safe until it’s time

I’ve got it to give 

Take it when it comes it never lasts forever

Now the curtain is closin’

And here is my last line
