So they say this is the end.
Wipe the makeup from my face,
fill my glass and fade away
so someone else can take my place.
It's okay, we'll still be friends.
Sure, I've said that line before,
still it's nice to say once more
even though my voice is hoarse

Watch the magic dissipate as lights come on.
On your breath, a lingering song.
All I have to give is gone.

Gather 'round like fallen leaves;
once the pride of summer's dawn,
brittle flashes come and gone,
now we lie here on the lawn
while the stars who light our way
burn beyond the lives of men.
We will rise with them and then
light the fires of youth again.

To the ashes we return like birds of flame.
Though we've sung the old refrain,
it will never sound the same.

We can move on,
we can move on
We can move on,
we can move on
one more time.

Set my glass upon the bar.
Know this spirit won't pervade—
taste the hour, then let it fade.
Lingering traces, memories made,
curtain calls and kisses blown.
Divvy up the artifacts.
Heaven knows when I'll be back,
out the door into the black

Once again we march into the great unknown
bearing all the will we've sown;
We will never be alone.

Since then I’ve played the Grand Ole Opry, been quoted in Rolling Stone, and made a name for myself in new media. I’ve been playing piano rock full-time since 2007 and since then I’ve never looked back. ... more
