​At The End Of A Song

This song is by Carpenters and appears on the album Voice Of The Heart (1983).

They tell me, somewhere this life isn't crazy
But I've travelled the world far and wide, and I say they're wrong
And don't tell me, stories that music's a lady
It's not when the singer's alone, at the end of a song

At the end of a song there's no one
After the last note is played
Only the memory stays
Then even that fades away
And there is nothing so hard
As convincing your heart
That you should start singing again

You told me, nothing could change perfect lovers
But like every promise you've made, it broke before long
It's lonely, falling away from each other
But we've come to the last of our words, and the end of our song

At the end of a song there's no one
After the last note is played
Only the memory stays
Then even that fades away
And there's is nothing so hard
As convincing your heart
That you should start singing again
That you should start singing again

John Bettis, Richard Carpenter
