When they call out for one last song
The moment we've dreading all night long
We don't speak, for there's nothing left to say
And the band begins to play

Bittersweet, that we have this final chance
To delay the end of our romance
Now you sweep me gently through the fray
And the band begins to play


Here's your heat, and your hand upon my hip
Your arm in every turn in every dip
I commit these to my memory as we sway
And the band begins to play


So for now, let us bury all our sins
And the pieces of what we might have been
Lord have mercy, let tomorrow fade away
And the band begins to play
And the band begins to play
And the band begins to play
