Lyrics

Hope it won’t always be this way, waiting on what other people say
Do they share my influences, will they understand it anyway?
Another day of emails unanswered and phone calls unreturned.
Oh well, nothing else makes me feel this way

So I’m gonna hold on or else my soul’s gone
I may be in denial but I’m certain. Don’t ever pull the curtain on me
I’ve spent a lifetime waiting for showtime
It may be my personal whale, but if you try, you never fail…it’s true

That’s what I tell myself anyway. Anything it takes to feel ok.
‘cause I’ve been falling apart inside. Seems every word I try to write goes unheard
Still nothing else makes me feel this way

So I’m gonna hold on or else my soul’s gone
I may be in denial but I’m certain. Don’t ever pull the curtain on me
I’ve spent a lifetime waiting for showtime
It may be my personal whale, but if you try, you never fail…it’s true

Isn’t it wonderful? We’re all forgettable.
What will you leave behind when you go?

I’ll spend a lifetime waiting for showtime
It may be my personal whale, my bitter heart’s jail…it’s true
I hope it won’t always be this way, waiting on what other people say
