lyrics

Curtain Call
By Eiks

Lying on a porch with the sun in my face
The waves are urging me to leave this place
Mother is singing next to me
The bickering and the quarrels
Bind us as one

If I had taken Eugene's hand
If bouquets were thrown in Upper East Side
Tortures of ifs and maybes
Time is running out
But for now I wait for my curtain call

Faded glamour like an old stain on a wall
There is someone upstairs roaming in the dark
Dusty cocktail dresses and diamonds to be sold
An aristocrat drinking wine from a paper cup

If I had taken Eugene's hand
If bouquets were thrown in Upper East Side
Tortures of ifs and maybes
Time is running out
But for now I wait for my curtain call
