Playing the Part

You should get a Grammy
For all of your acting
Put you on the big screen
The all of them see


You tried to bring me down
But I stood strong
You didn't see this coming
You thought I was the same

Now you can stay
And finally show yourself
Or you can go
And give your worst to someone else


You should get a Grammy
For all of your acting
Put you on the big screen
Let all of them see

You know it really is a shame
You let it go to waste
You'll always be someone else
Hidden behind the masks


You watch as the sun fades
Tell me that you love me
I must be dreaming
Pinch myself awake

It wasn't a dream
It was just an act
It was all a lie
I think you enjoy my pain


You should get a Grammy
For all of your acting
Put you on the big screen
Let all of them see

You know it really is a shame
You let it go to waste
You'll always be someone else
At the snap of your fingers


Do you remember the days
We stayed up till midnight
Talking over the phone
Whispered conversations; all ours alone

This is such a terrible mess
I'm finding you out
We're all part of the same
Sick little screen plays


You should get a Grammy
For all of your acting
Put you on the big screen
Let all of them see

I'm having my doubts
Dressed up as yourself
But hiding in yourself
So contradictory

So here's your award
How do you feel now
You've won the war
You've lost your chance

It's all on the big screen

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
