I know I'm not a genius

I will do my best

That's no reason to make me nauseous

My very best

I know the situation is dire

Until that sinking feeling in my chest

But I'm going to show my fire

Is gone

I'm going to have stage fright

But I'm going to set it alight

Make it shine so bright

Until the only thing in my sight

Is aflame

I'm going to break out in hives

But I'm going to come out alive

I'm confident; I will strive

To set this stage


I'm going to exchange anxiety

For sobriety

I'll show this society

I'll set this stage


I will not withdraw

I'll leave everyone in awe

That the girl they just saw

Set the stage
