You've gotta go,
Barbie Doll castles are closing down;
You're off to the show,
I'd never tell you to turn around now.
Remember your coat,
I remember the winter that you came around,
Before you hit the road.
Why don't you dance with me now?

Why don't you stay?
The song only lasts for so long;
All I can say is,
I'll miss you the moment you're gone.
So show me that smile and hang for a while,
You're headed a lifetime away.
Why don't you stay?

Don't draw the shades,
Let the king lie in the setting sun;
I've got so much to say now,
It's funny the days when the courage comes.
Before you fly away,
Know it goes on, everything you've begun;
The band is still playing,
Why don't we wait till they're done?

Why don't you stay?
The song only lasts for so long;
All I can say is,
I'll miss you the moment you're gone.
So show me that smile and hang for a while,
You're headed a lifetime away.
Why don't you stay?

One more for the road,
Some soldiers won't die till the light of day;
And drinking alone is,
For only the loneliest anyway;
So here's to the ghosts,
And here's to the games that we lost and we loved;
We come and we go,
But a lifetime is never enough

Why don't you stay?
The song only lasts for so long;
All I can say is,
I'll miss you the moment you're gone.
So show me that smile and hang for a while,
You're headed a lifetime away.
Why don't you stay?
Why don't you stay?
