One Man Show

It is a one man show
You’re really out of control
You want to tell people
But you can’t let them know

Nobody thinks this of you
This is not something you’d do
You are not sure of what is truth
But you remember your youth

You have a script for your show
You enter the stage as they go
Deep inside you feel really low
But still, can’t let them know

You are filled with pride
So you have to build a life
Based upon small white lies
Your words are doing fine

You were very proper once
But it has been a bad month
You have issues to confront
Reaching out a hand, they won’t

You believed in yourself
Told yourself it would get well
You’re now in need of help
Because the hope you tried to sell

Didn’t work out, now they see
But there’s no help to seek
Simply because your dream
Relied on great self belief

But there is no help in sight
You are alone late at night
One man looking up to the sky
In hope of some sunshine

But in the tunnel it is dark
And you have got no heart
Your whole life you tried so hard
But forgot who you really are

You forgot who you are
The sun, the moon and the stars
You forgot who you are
The sun, the moon and the stars

The sun, the moon and the stars
The sun, the moon and the stars
The sun, the moon and the stars
The sun, the moon and the stars
