lyrics

Let your hair hang down like the curtains at the end of the show
Go ahead and take your bow just to tell me that it's time to go home
I'll be waiting in line come tomorrow
For the same as the last time better than the next fine morning all alone
Til then I'll whisper to you to you what only the balcony knows

I got a center-stage woman on the back of my mind I see her every day cause I can't find a way to let go
I got a center-stage woman on the back of my mind I see her every day cause I can't find a way to let go

Since I cut my teeth on her candy
Backstage right with the lights down low
I've been fallin' on a table for two more pints
Just to make it to the end of the show

Well I went downtown to the tailor
For to find me a suit made blue
Sleeves hung to my knees, man he looked to me
Said "Son, that's too blue for you"

So I threw my money on the table
Told him don't you tell me when and how I'm able
And I stumbled outside not a cloud in the sky
As I tore of that new suit label

When the lights go down I'll be high on the edge of my seat
And when they turn 'em back on I'll be the first up to my feet
Gotta find a disguise for my sorrow
So I hide behind your last line hopin' that you'll find those words to let me go
Til then I'll whisper to you what only the balcony knows

I got a center-stage woman on the back of my mind I see her every day cause I can't find a way to let go
I got a center-stage woman on the back of my mind I see her every day cause I can't find a way to let go

Let your hair hang down like the curtains at the end of the show
Go ahead and take your bow just to tell me that it's time to go home
I'll be waiting in line come tomorrow
For the same as the last time better than the next fine morning all alone
Til then I'll whisper to you to you what only the balcony knows

I got a center-stage woman on the back of my mind...
Center stage woman on the back of my mind...
Center stage woman on the back of my mind...
Center stage woman on the back of my mind...
