Center Stage


Have you ever felt like your life was on a stage?
You lived on center stage.
Everyone's watching your every move.
You're left feeling like you have to prove.
To the whole world, that you know, they've been watching you.
I see you!
You thought I didn't know.
You thought I'd just blow.
You off,
But, I see you.
You're wondering and pondering is she going to write about me.
How could this be?
What will she write next?
Will it be sent in a text?
It's about me.
I'm on center stage.
Wishing I could hide in a cage.
My life written on a page,
What's my age?
Will it be believable?
Or unbelievable,
What will people think?
Will I need a stiff drink?
It could be something nice.
Or something with spice,
Or some sound advice.
Given twice!
Whatever, it's me.
I'm on center stage.
