You take to the stage.
You take to the stage,
Heart thumping in your ears,
You can see her sitting there,
She's watching, eyes on you.
You manage to appear calm,
On the inside, you're a nervous wreck,
Shaking, quivering, sinking,
But your safe here, on the stage.
She watches with a smile,
You play the part so well,
Rehearsed lines and smiles,
Cues you thought you'd forgotten.
This is something you enjoy so much,
An antidote, distraction from reality,
As it reaches it's end, you're relieved,
And then you leave the stage.
