I'm going home (The Show is Over) (Words and music by Alan Gillis)

I'm going home, the show is over
Time to be alone
No more talk it over
No more me and you
No more we, it's true
And for me the night has just begun
The setting sun is sliding down the evening sky
It used to be so high

Verse 2
I'm going home
The final curtain's closing on the stage
Now I know for certain
No more kiss goodnight
No more hold me tight
I'll take my bow and leave the stage
The orchestra is rising from their seats below
Looks like its time to go

I played my part out for only you
Never saw the other faces in the crowd
I never thought you'd turn the spotlight out
The applause was always so loud


Repeat verse 1
