[Verse 1:] The flowers are faded now Along with your letters They will never see the light of day Cause I'll never take them out And there's no turning back Its for the better Baby I deserved more than empty words And promises I believed everything you said And I give you the best I had Ohh.
[Chorus:] So take a bow. Cause you've taken everything else You played the part and like a star you played it so well Take a bow 'cause this scene is coming to an end I gave you love. All you give me was pretend So now... Take a bow
[Verse 2:] The future's about to change Before you know it the curtain closes Take a look around There's no one in the crowd I'm throwing away the pain And you should know that your performance it made me stronger now
[Hook:] Well it must have been slight of hand 'cause I still can't understand How I could never see Just what a fool believed Um
But the lies they start to show Tell me how it feels to know Right now that I wont be around So baby before I put you out
