Behind the Curtain

Pay no attention 

This will pass

Pay no attention 

I won't let it last

To the city I am strong

Ask the people within

They won't tell you wrong

This is what they believe in.

 

Behind the curtain 

Inside the smoke

My mind is uncertain

My heart is broke

I cling to the past

I cannot move on

Why I must ask?

The answer is gone.

 

If that curtain does fall

I fear they will see

I am weak and small

I don't want to be.

I don't want any pity

I want to be great

Ask the people in the city

Or sit here and wait.
