She paints her face
Who is the character for the night?
I guess its open to interpretation
As she stands in the center of the stage
She slowly turns
She hears the applause
And the cat calls
Is this life?
Or is this just a dream?
Can any life include love
Without it going insane?
I am just a dream
Spinning around to give them what they want
Will they be satisfied when I'm off the stage?
When my scene has ended,
Will anyone even care that just for a moment
I held their attention
I became the thing they wanted
The thing they adored
When the spot lights are off
Does anyone even remember my name?
When I wipe away the nights camoflage
Am I anything to be noticed?
Who am I helping
When I remove a sweater?
What do I change
When my lips are painted red?
Who could ever really love some one
That pretends to be someone else?
Can life ever have meaning
If you spend half of it in character?
Am I real?
Does everyone see me now?
Why do I feel like a shadow
When everyone can see everything?
I am a shadow
Of the girl I used to be.
