Famous Final Scene

Think in terms of bridges burned
Think of seasons that must end
See the rivers rise and fall
They will rise and fall again

Everything must have an end
Like an ocean to a shore
Like a river to a stream
Like a river to a stream
It’s the famous final scene

And how you tried to make it work
Did you really think it could?
How you tried to make it last
Did you really think it would?

Like a guest who stayed too long
Now it’s finally time to leave
Yes, it’s finally time to leave
Take it calmly and serene
It’s the famous final scene

It’s been coming on so long
You were just the last to know
It’s been a long time since you’ve smiled
Seems like, oh, so long ago

Now the stage has all been set
And the nights are growing cold
Soon the winter will be here
And there’s no one warm to hold

Now the lines have all been read
And you knew them all by heart
Now you move toward the door
Here it comes, the hardest part

Try the handle of the road
Feeling different, feeling strange
This can never be arranged

As the light fades from the screen
From the famous final scene

Released 1978
