In the Wings

Waiting for the cue
For the first step in the light
Brighter than day
Breathing deep
Mind at rest
And buzzing
All at once

The crowd is there
But it's the story that moves me
(Not the applause)
The lines
The songs
The beatific face
I show them

Time to play pretend
To step out of my life
For a short while
To forget everything
To forget myself
To be another life
To live another dream
To see the world another way

If only for a moment
