lyrics

A light that teases through
reveals the crowded room
the curtains purpose, tried and true
Behind it only me
not ready, not willing
I can't afford to lose this part of me
So in the dark, I'll be

Play us the song you've left undone
Sing us the words you've left unsung
Why are you standing on this stage
if all these lines are sentenced to these page
five to the four to the three, two, one
you're on

The lions caged and caught
He says speak from the heart
speak up before they stand leave you
The ticking never stops
The enemy's the clock
So sing before they find somebody else

'cause in the dark I'm free
So in the dark, I'll be

In the light I know the crowd will see right through me

Play us the song you've left undone
Sing us the words you've left unsung
Why are you standing on this stage
if all these lines are sentenced to these page
five to the four to the three, two, one
you're on

When I start to believe just how this goes
my doubt seems to find me, so I
Seek the silent approval of the ghost
the one only I see and I
Always thought that approval was enough
to fill and define me find me so I
So I walk off the stage right here alone, the place only I know I'm free

The curtains closed
When it opens I'll be gone
