lyrics

(Words & Music by Perry Nunn)

Somebody tell me
A story of how it feels
To find inspiration of a lifetime
Remind me what is real
Words long unspoken
Cast in new light
Staged inside my brain
Trust my heart to get it right

A backdrop of beauty
A stage of sky and stone
Hammer home the love
Keep me grounded to the bone
Paint a picture of truth
Within the nonsense of the scene
Crazy actions cue
Mindful reactions in me

I've been watching a play for years
Walked a million miles of intention
Round a little town of fear
Now the new direction is clear
In this live production
Be myself or nothing
Make the roles all disappear

Somebody show me
What I already know
Could be an extra in a silent movie
Or write and direct the show
About a hard working man
Finding love in the world
Improvising lines on how
The boy gets the girl
Drama, comedy, music, movement
With the pain

I’ve been watching a play for years
Content to play the victim
The misunderstood hero
Now the new direction is clear
In this live production
Be myself or nothing
Make the roles all disappear

Now the lights shine and
Dance on the stage
Supporting cast of teachers
Every stripe every age
A breakout role as
I find love within me

Now I knew that old play for years
Spoke a million lines of intention
On a stage set in the mirror
Now the new direction is clear
In this live production
Be myself or nothing
Make the roles all disappear

Life in production
No script only change
Find ourselves in roles
We don't expect to play
And pray we have the range
And when the credits roll
To be understood and recognized
With love from the critic
Behind our own eyes
