The Party’s Over

The Party’s Over
(Difford/Martyn/Levy)

When the honeymoon ends and the pink clouds dissolve
And the ice covers over the love and the soul
Where can we find refuge? Where can we find escape?
When the party is over, the party is over, the party is over
How much more can we take?

When the carnival ends and the coloured lights fade
There’s a sense of not knowing if we should be disgraced
Like a wave on the ocean we can break on the rocks
When the party is over, the party is over, the party is over
And the pressure just drops

When the champagne is gone and the curtains are closed
There is silence between us our defences exposed
We have come such a long way to be coiled like a spring
When the party is over, the party is over, the party is over
We can bounce back again

So let the lights fade send the band home
The music plays on in my heart raise up your glass
Here’s to the last play on play on

When the dancing is done do you clear up or sleep
Where confetti has fallen on the floor round your feet
The flowers and faces are weltered and torn
When the party is over, the party is over, the party is over
Life just carries on

When the party is over, the party is over, the party is over
Life just carries on
