The Music and Me

I want to hide,
I want to run,
The band's started playing,
The show's begun.

The curtains draw
Revealing my face,
I'm still and silent, 
I feel out of place.

But then the music
Hits my cue:
I sing out loud,
Out loud for you.

They're clapping along,
Along with me.
I'm in the spot
I'm meant to be.

I feel great, 
As great as can be.
I was getting clapped at,
Just the music and me.
