The Greatest Performance of My Life - lyrics

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, danced 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
