The Show Must Go On



Empty spaces what are we living for

Abandoned places - I guess we know the score             

On and on, does anybody know       

what we are looking for...

Another hero, another mindless crime     

Behind the curtain, in the pantomime

Hold the line, does anybody want to take it anymore

The show must go on,         

The show must go on          

Inside my heart is breaking

My make-up may be flaking   

But my smile still stays on.    

Whatever happens, I'll leave it all to chance

Another heartache, another failed romance    

On and on, does anybody know

what we are living for?      

I guess I'm learning, I must be warmer now          

I'll soon be turning, round the corner now

Outside the dawn is breaking

But inside in the dark I'm aching to be free    

The show must go on          

The show must go on          

Inside my heart is breaking

My make-up may be flaking   

But my smile still stays on     

My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies 

Fairytales of yesterday will grow but never die   

I can fly - my friends     

The show must go on          

The show must go on          

I'll face it with a grin          

I'm never giving in 

On - with the show      

I'll top the bill, I'll overkill       

I have to find the will to carry on     

On with the   

On with the show        

The show must go on...
