Singing Without Stage Lights
Singing Without Stage Lights1 min 211 1 min 211
Look me in the eye and tell me a story,
Of stage lights and make-believe glory.
Of living the dream, to wake up screaming;
Didn’t tell you they’d put a price-tag on dreaming.
Tell me how much you sold for?
The buyer – a corporation or the press corps?
What price for the smile that’s got the crowds swooning?
Kiss the mic and stamp a number on our undoing.
Say, can you still sing me a song when we’re all alone?
Can you still hum a tune without a microphone?
Write a melody that won’t hit any Billboard charts
Sing a song about how we’re not falling apart.
