"The curtain must fall before our curtain call"

Curtain Call

Now as I write myself out of the play
Time comes and goes and brings a change of scene
I live I love say what I mean to say
But there is no one to know what I mean

With the audience I will fade away
Along with you who will fade away too
Yet all of us as one now we who fade
Encore the light as we pass into shade

After a good run when the play is done
As we fade together then you and I
As all who are born and who live must die
In birth and death as in life we are one

The curtain is certain to fall on us all

And so we write ourselves out of the play
Time comes and goes and brings a change of scene
I lived I loved said what I meant to say
But there was no one to know what I mean

Let all of us as one now we who fade
Although we fade vow not to fade away
Encore the light as we pass into shade
The end of the play surprises this way

The curtain must fall before our curtain call

wish you alot of mirth further along with your work, and of course we`ll continue walking together through this life- there are places where deluding shows aren't necessary, where one doesn't need to wait to make and have a special day

Such a true look at the reality of life as a stage and as Elvis once said we the actors on that stage.
