Performance (Cocker Joe)

Your performance is almost over When you're through I will take you home To a place where the water's always fresh and cool I will lay you down, take off your shoes Yes, the curtain is about to take your place There's that sad, almost grin upon your face Cause you know you've done your best Now honey leave the rest to me and I'll take care of you As they watch you fall down to your knees They don't know that you're praying to please They don't see the little angel at your back with a star The only one who knows exactly who you are You're a thing that makes music they don't understand And they cheer as you carry out your endless plan You are weary but you must, it's the only thing you trust As you live you've got to give Your performance is almost over When you're through I will take you home You're a ghost that I can see, you're the other part of me Now honey I will take care of you Cause you know you've done your best Now honey leave the rest to me and I'll take care of you
