While The Music Plays On

This song is by Tony Bennett and appears on the album Jazz (1987).

Each night in some café
I'm on display until the dark turns into dawn
Up upon the stand, singing with the band
While the music plays on

Each night is just a long and endless song
Until the last couple has gone
Vainly I must start singing out my heart
While the music plays on

Oh, what madness to discover
Music still possesses all its charms
As I serenade my lover
Dancing by in someone else's arms

But I am not allowed to show the crowd
What happens when romance has gone
I must hide my fears singing through the tears
While the music plays on
