You'Ve Got To Start Somewhere - Poem by Colin Coplin

You’ve got to start to somewhere
Now’s a good place to start
Wait until tomorrow
And you may have lost your part

This stage is forever but the chances are few
Before you know it, they’ve never heard of you

And you wonder if you’ll make it
If you’ll have no regrets
And your scared of failure
And maybe of success
If you don’t make a start
Then you’ll never know
If your opening night closes
Or is a long run Broadway show

Children are born, they grow and they die
What they do in between time is why we’re alive

Got to ride the wave, grab the bull with both horns
Before you know it, your life’s come, been and gone

This mercury’s is wild, take your chance place your bets
With a truck load of thoughts
Aim for the heart, make your mark,
Let fate do the rest

And you wonder if you’ll make it
If you’ll have no regrets
And your scared of the hunger
And loneliness
If you don’t make a start
Then you’ll never know
If your opening night closes
Or is a long run Broadway show

Break

You’ve got to start to somewhere
Now’s a good place to start
Wait until tomorrow
And you may have lost your part

This stage is forever but the chances are few
Before you know it, they’ve never heard of you

You’ve got to start to somewhere
Now’s a good place to start
