Shining Stage

[The lyrics for this particuar entry will be colour-coded for the purposes of showing where I slip in and out of my own imagination. This song is about willing an experience into existence, only to be reminded of reality. Enjoy!]

Unfamiliar sounds
Feel my heart beating faster
Watching all the lights casting shapes on the naked plaster
Not so long ago I was there in the balcony
But this time there’s a crowd and they’re waiting for you and me

Sound check
Dress rehearsal
Panic stations
Role reversal
Count down
Intro sequence
Spot light
Sub bass frequency

This shining stage, this golden age

Will I ever know what it’s like trading places;
Watching all the lights casting shapes on their smiling faces?
Had so many dreams from my seat in the balcony
But this time there’s a crowd
And they’re screaming for you and me

You and me
For you and me
You and me
You and me…

Always to be, beyond my reach

Get me
Out of here
Lift me
To the limit
Always waiting alone
Always waiting, always waiting here
