At noon curtains drawn
By midnight intoxicated
The stage would spin all day
Then lights go out one by one
And velvet moon lights our way.
I wanted to build a stage and pretend
Then recreate a life I could play
The woman you might be the man
Save me from dragons, locked away
I promise you the land.
As the hours pass, faces appear
The crowd is growing, eminence near
But the voice is choking, deaf by ear
The lines are lost, cheering, then at once
The cover disappears.
