Sir Simon Battle - The Band Stopped Playing lyrics

The lights went on
The band stopped playing
Our voices drowned by the applause
They gave encores as we left the building
For midnight phonecalls in the dark
hello ... hello ... hello ...
You missed the train and I watched you walking
The next train won't leave before the dawn
But it's hard to talk just to avoid the silence so we both put our headphones on

So turn that tune now into something truthful
Into something meaningful or special
And please make those batteries last a little longer
Keep the thin red bar alive ...
We said "goodnight"
and we saw it coming as the sky was getting bright again
And you shook my hand and I started laughing
Comedy is just tragedy plus time ...

So please turn that handshake into something useful
Into something beautiful or special
And please make those batteries last a little longer
Keep the thin red bar alive ...
And I put that away for the rest of the day
'Cause the signs on the display say "over" ...
