Lights, Camera, Stage Fright

Your heart races

Your hands start to shake

Scared of the faces,

The impression you'll make.


You close your eyes 

The voices start to stop

That's when you realize

It's time, your stomach flops


The voices are gone

Attention all on you

You walk towards the stage

The intensity that grew


Your heart races

Your legs start to shake

You walk on stage with small paces

Afraid of the impression you will make.


The light shines bright on you

You are scared to sing

The people are watching, 

But you have to do something.


As the music starts playing

You take in a deep breath

And begin to let out your love

Letting the sound of music ring.
