"The Actress"

Your leading man's forgot his lines
He's a different person every night
When the spotlight fades and the curtains close
Life goes on but the whole cast knows

Step outside for a cigarette
Grin and bear the cold neglect
He won't look your way from across the room
You're fooling yourself, like it's anything new

The actress inside you says everything's fine
You're still in your twenties, you got nothin' but time
Your name's all lit up by the stars in your eyes
It's gotta feel good when your dreams start to die

The crowd's fallen silent, they don't know what to believe
The first Act is over, it's hard to conceive
That the girl they once knew's found a house to call home
It's been burnt to the ground by the lies that she's sold

The actress inside you says everything's fine
You're still in your twenties, you got nothin' but time
Your name's all lit up by the stars in your eyes
It's gotta feel good when your dreams start to die

Ages of playwrights have told the same tale
Stories of true love, all bound to fail
Princes and toads, those fairy tale sins
The wrong “ever afters” are wearing too thin

The actress inside you says everything's fine
You're still in your twenties, you got nothin' but time
Your name's all lit up by the stars in your eyes
It's gotta feel good when your dreams start to die


...Just noticed a song by marinaserra71 called "The Actor"...Please don't think I'm a hack, this song has nothing to do with yours!

this was nice. It gave me that same feeling a good story does when you feel transported to another place and time. living through another and such. very nice.
If you do something right, no one will know you've done anything at all
