Joe Cocker

John Robert "Joe" Cocker OBE (born 20 May 1944) is an English rock and blues singer, who came to popularity in the 1960s, and is known for his gritty voice, his idiosyncratic arm movements while performing, and his cover versions of popular songs, particularly those of the Beatles. more »

Your performance is almost over
When you're through I will take you home
To a place where the water's always fresh and cool
I will lay you down, take off your shoes

Yes, the curtain is about to take your place
There's that sad, almost grin upon your face
Cause you know you've done your best
Now honey leave the rest to me and I'll take care of you

As they watch you fall down to your knees
They don't know that you're praying to please
They don't see the little angel at your back with a star
The only one who knows exactly who you are

You're a thing that makes music they don't understand
And they cheer as you carry out your endless plan
You are weary but you must, it's the only thing you trust
As you live you've got to give

Your performance is almost over
When you're through I will take you home
You're a ghost that I can see, you're the other part of me
Now honey I will take care of you

Cause you know you've done your best
Now honey leave the rest to me and I'll take care of you
