One More Time

I still remember how we began

Not foreseeing the things to come

My knees shook as I went to the front of the room

As I spoke, my heart beat like a drum

Terrified I would make a mistake and let you down

But feeling that this was where I would always belong somehow

Still I never clearly knew

I'd be screaming with you


Tonight we stand fearless

Tonight we stand strong

And those once against us

Are cheering us on

All these years we have fought for

These moments to shine

And when now is a memory

I'll wish I was with you one more time


We found our home for the rest of our days

Even though one day we'd go

We'd stand on the front lines caught in their gaze

Until goodbye came, we would show

How all the pain that we suffered through could make our dreams come true

Dazzling lights from Heaven shining down on me and you

As we faced the enemy

Held our heads for the world to see


Tonight we stand fearless

Tonight we stand strong

And those once against us

Are cheering us on

All these years we have fought for

These moments to shine

And when now is a memory

I'll wish I was with you one more time


I can't change how we end

One day I'll start again

I'll be in a new world

But you'll still be the world to me

I'll keep chasing our lifelong dream

I won't let your memory die

This will forever be my battle cry


Remember

The night we stood fearless

The night we stood strong

And when those once against us

Were cheering us on

All those years we had fought for

These moments to shine

And by holding your memory

I'm with you one more time

Stand with me

By my side

One more time

For my high school drama club, remembering my very first performance with them and trying to visualize my very last. I can't imagine having anyone else standing with me and helping me shine. But my senior year isn't too far off. One day I'll graduate and move on to perform in college, then countless auditions before I start again. But each and every one of them will stay in my heart forever, and every time I'm on the front lines to face the enemy, they will be my battle cry.
