The air is gray
Music plays
Time to be on stage

Smiling bright
Blinding lights
Laughing through the pain

Take my stance
Begin to dance
See the crowd at last

Smiling bright
Blinding lights
Joy can be hard to feign

Take my bow
Applause from the crowd
It feels like I'm in a dream

Now that I'm done
Feels like I've barely begun
It's all over for today

My community
Our world
