Tonight I gave the greatest performance of my life
I never lost control, I played the part so well
That not a single soul could tell that I was lying
And so

Though it was hard to face our
Friends I gave a party
I know
I meant to show them all I've gotten over you
And though
I saw the unbelieving looks on all their faces
I had to try to make them think that it was true
So I
Who hardly dance, dance through the
Night, just like a gypsy
And I
Who seldom drink, drank like a fish till I was high
And I

Who hadn't laughed since God knows
When, outlaughed Pagliacci
Till they
Believed it more than even I
Tonight I gave the greatest performance of my life
I never lost control, I played the part so well
That not a single soul could tell that I was lying

But love

If you had been behind the curtain when it fell
When all the lights were out and I was all alone
You would have seen

This actress crying
Yes, tonight I gave the greatest
Performance of my life
I never lost control, I played the part so well
That not a single soul could tell that I was lying

But love

If you had been behind the curtain when it fell
When all the lights were out and I was all alone
You would have seen

This actress crying
