Lyrics: 

Curtains Rise and Fall; Lyrics: Kahlo
V1 as the curtain rises
the stage is lit
and the house lights
grow dim
drawing us in
to fantasy....
something new
is starting like
love's first song
when the music swells
and love goes on
Chorus:
curtains rise and fall
all around and within us
curtains rise and fall
yeah...curtains rise and fall
curtains rise and fall
despite and because of love
curtains rise and fall
yeah...curtains rise and fall
V2. as the curtain falls
the stage goes black
and house lights
come on
bringing us back
to reality....
now it is over like
love's final song
when the music dies
and love is gone
Chorus
Bridge:
who can lift the curtains?
who can pull the strings?
who can make love go on
after everything...
everything ends
OUTRO
curtains rise and fall
all around and within us
curtains rise and fall
despite and because of love

Absolutely gorgeous, breath taking song. Very beautiful lyrics, music, vocals and piano playing. What a treat to listen to your collaboration! Such a poignant song with so true feelings. Brilliant job!

I already commented on the original lyrics -- which I though were wonderful -- and this performance does them full credit. Dignified and beautiful, sensitive and delicate, the spare piano and gorgeous vocals bring the longing and searching of the words to the fore, and make a strong case that this song could be the big, dramatic showstopper in a stage musical about the nature of love.

Very pretty piano. Lyrics remind me that the only thing that is constant in life is change.
