Set the Stage

Right here

Right here I stand

Right here

Right here I am

Right here, right here

I am right here

Look to your left

Look to your right

Try as you might, you wont see me flee

This passion; I wont let it flee

Right here

Right here I stand

Right here

Right here I am

Right here, right here

I am left here

Look to your right

Look to your left

Try as you might, you wont see me leaning

I'm tall, like a tall tree, I reach the ceiling

Right here

Right here I stand

Right here

Right here I am

Right here, right here

I am at the back here

Look to your front

Look to your back

Try as you might, You wont see me back down

Even if I'm in the back, I'm just down town

Right here

Right here I stand

Right here

Right here I am

Right here, right here

I am in the front here

Look to your back

Look to your front

Try as you might, you won't see me melt, like a puddle

You'll see me standing tall, right in the middle

Right here

Right here I stand

Right here

Right here I am

Right here, right here

I'm in the center

The epicenter

A hole, punctured in a large colorful beachball

As the air rushes out, and the pressures reach equilibriam 

I find myself watching all

Like Im standing in front of a mass audience, right at the podium

I inhale

Exhale

Let go of the fear

the material clouding my eyes is sheer

And then it is gone, all doubt

I'm finally choosing a route

The curtains shift back

Fear, I lack

I smile

This, yes this was worth the while

and now,

Right here

Right here I stand

Right here

Right here I am

Right here, right here

I'm ready to speak

My excitement is at its peak

I am ready.
