Album: All The Lost SoulsReleased: 2007
In this song Blunt is saying that even after the fans' applause has faded and the curtain has come down for the last time, the music remains. He explained on his record label's website: "The chorus sums it up: 'And if I can't hear the music and the audience is gone, I'll dance here on my own.' It's about saying I'm in it for the passion. I'm in it for the love of it, and the audience may be a temporary thing."
The line "And I hope the Lonely Hearts Club Band will play out one last song" is a direct reference to The Beatles album Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band
, which was made with a concept of a separate band performing.
