  • The time has come to say goodbye
    The sun is setting in the sky
    The truth turned out to be a lie
    It's over
    Over
    Hum yourself a lullaby
    This is the end but baby don't you cry

    So take away the melody and all that's left are memories of lovers
    Friends and enemies
    But they're all fading
    You may not remember me
    I haven't got the strength to carry on

    If this is the last song I'll ever sing then I'm giving it everything
    I'm giving it all
    If this is the last song that I'll ever play
    Then I guess it's time to take my curtain call
    I'm dying to thank you all
    I'm dying to thank you all
    I'm dying to thank you all
    I thank you all
    Yeah

    So here's to all the lonely hearts
    'Cause mine's been ripped and torn apart
    It's colder now
    It's getting dark but I'll be okay
    Bury me with my guitar and on the way to hell I'll play

    If this is the last song I'll ever sing then I'm giving it everything
    I'm giving it all
    If this is the last song that I'll ever play
    Then I guess it's time to take my curtain call
    I'm dying to thank you all
    I'm dying to thank you all
    I'm dying to thank you all
    I thank you all
    Yeah

    One more song before I've got to go
    I'm singing from the very bottom of my soul
    And meaning every single word and every note
    I'm pleading
    Let me hear you singing it out once more with feeling

    One more song before I've got to go
    I'm singing from the very bottom of my soul
    And meaning every single word and every note
    I'm pleading
    Let me hear you singing it out once more with feeling

    If this is the last song I'll ever sing then I'm giving it everything
    I'm giving it all
    If this is the last song I'll ever play
    I guess it's time to take my curtain call

    And if this is the last song I'll ever sing then I'm giving it everything
    Yeah
    I'm giving it all
    And if this is the last song I'll ever play
    Then I guess it's time to say, "We thank you all"
