    Lyrics

    He's the star on the stage, but he screams all night
    'Cause he can't get to sleep at all
    And his favorite book, by the T.V. Light
    Can't stop this matinee, he's played it over and over

    And he can't stop the music
    Or remember the ending to his song
    He played it much too long

    All those hard earned words, that he's fought from his pen
    Have been forgotten in some empty hall
    And those wide eyed looks, on those wiped out faces
    Make some dreams of their places over and over

    And he can't stop the music
    Or remember the ending to his song
    He played it much too long

    Wouldn't believe in years
    If he told you what the papers use to say
    But that was in his hey day

    Get back in his prime he had the fans in line
    You should have seen him then
    Now look at him

    His hair is getting thin
    There's one last show before the glory ends
    There in the wings, waits his only friend
    The record that he's prayed to over and over

    And he can't stop the music
    Or remember the ending to his song
    He played it much too long

    Now, he can't stop the music, oh no
    Then we go like this, and we go like that
    Music
    Then we go like this, and we go like that
    Can't stop the music

    Then we go like this, and we go like that
    Music
    Then we go like this and we go like that
    Can't stop the music

    Then we go like this, and we go like that
    Music
    Then we go like this, and we go like that
    Can't stop the music

    Then we go like this, and we go like that
    Music
    Then we go like this and we go like that
