The Last Comeback

Philip Clark/Janis Ian

Roll out the red carpet, let me in
Here I am knocking down the door again
Broken dreams - broken lives
In the end, only hope survives
Only hope survives

These are the songs nobody wanted
This is the voice that no one heard
This is the show that no one came to
The lights are down - the stage is black
I'm ready now for the last comeback

I fear the anger and the greed
Shallow as the heart I let you see
Frightened by the hunger and the shame
Selling out a soul for a well-known name
Just a well known name

These are the nights no one remembers
These are the stages time forgets
These are the shows that no one came to
The lights are down - the stage is black
I'm ready for the last comeback

It's what I want
It's what I need
It's only make believe

What'cha gonna do when time runs out?
Nobody remembers your name now
It's in the heart - it's in the eyes
but you know the fire never dies
The fire never dies

These are the songs nobody wanted
This is the voice that no one heard
This is the show that no one came to
The lights are down - the stage is black
I'm ready for the last comeback
The lights are down - the stage is black
I'm ready for the last comeback
