lyrics

The Party must end
What do we do then?
I’ll go back to pushing pens
And you go back to losing friends
The bar has run dry
We’ve cried all we’ll cry
I miss the rage, I miss the fun
I do not envy anyone who’s always been dry

Last to leave put the keys back through the door
Leave a note tell them we’re not there anymore

The party must end
The bruises will mend
I’ll keep the ringing in my ears
A memory of the golden years
Years in the sun
The luckiest ones
We’ll take a bow
Turn our backs
File away the photographs
In a draw full of fun

Last to leave put the keys back through the door
Leave a note tell them we’re not there anymore

We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...
