​The Last Walz

This song is by Pendragon and appears on the live album Live In Krakow 1996 (1997).

Hang up your dancing shoes, hide in that secret place
Play that song of empty charm of empty time and space
You're a tired ballerina in a musical box
When the key unwinds you have to stop when the music stops

So you can find your way, I'll leave a gaslight burning in the window
Do you remember, do you recall, the smell of
School dining halls and backstreet brawls?
I was a twenty first century kid Casanova
With a lover's patch and freestyle charm we went arm in arm

I remember the autumn leaves
I remember those times
In cold October air kicking cans and buying time
I recall our old town, the place I used to work
The boy just trying to throw some magic down upon the world
But you can't dance forever, the last waltz is over
And most of all as I recall the final line upon her lips
