The Last Note

 

‚Äč

The last note echoed through the room

The band packed up for the night

The crowd dispersed humming their tune

I drained my glass, grabbed my bag

And I walked across the room

A page in history went down

And then it turned

And that’s alright

The word it echoed around town

But that’s alright

There are other places I can go to hide

 

I never thought you’d still be here anyway

So see you ‘round

But if you want to stay

Yeah, that’s alright

 

I hear the factory’s closing down

They’re moving on

Progress won

As models fade and rivers dry

I’ll drive through the night

Or find another way to leave it all behind

 

I never thought you’d still be here anyway

So see you ‘round

But if you want to stay

Yeah, that’s alright

 

And I know you got more seeds to sew

And that’s alright

Yeah, that’s alright

Mysteries need room to grow

Maybe I’ll crack the code

In another place, in another time

 

Like a well worn book

You gave me that look

And I had to turn away

I never thought you’d still be here

But if you want to stay

That’s alright

Yeah, that’s alright
