Average White Band - When They Bring Down The Curtain Lyrics




When they bring down the curtain
Everybody's gonna think it's over
In the back of my mind I know
It's only the start of the show
When they bring down the curtain
That's when my troubles begin
When it gets to you, girl
That's the hardest part to win

Sitting here in my room backstage
With only my thoughts to keep me company
Read the script again from an empty page
Still I see your face in front of me
But I can't let this feeling take over
I've got to go out and play my part
No one else realizes
I'm doing it all with an aching heart tonight

The houselights dim and the show has begun
All the lines seem to flow so easily
People laugh but I can't join the fun
All my words just echo back at me
Still I go through the motions
Tell a joke, pull a funny face
No one else has a notion
I've lost something that I can't replace tonight

When they bring down the curtain
Everybody's gonna think it's over
In the back of my mind I know
It's only the start of the show
When they bring down the curtain
That's when my troubles begin
When it gets to you, girl
That's the hardest part to win

Average White Band When They Bring Down The Curtain Comments
  1. Johnny Munoz

    AWB. Has always made music with meaning behind it. they are 1 of my favorite groups. I still see them every year till this day. And not to mention they have the best album logo.

  2. Gus Martins

    Perhaps, because Ferrone's drumming is masterful. Settled, rhythmic and tasteful.

  3. Edward Tait

    Soul, soul. The things that matter. Thank you.

  4. David A

    I've always believed that this song was about the effect Robbie's death had on the band...listen to the lyrics. 

    Claudio Herrera Figueroa

    David A ....you right man....Mc Intosh lives....
