All along the way there were things to do
Always some other someone I could be
Other things to know, other ways to go
To fly a spirit for the play to show
It wasn't always easy learning to be me
Sometimes my hitting hard would disagree
Times I walked away other times I stay
To see the glamour of my life the play
Being me I dared to be myself alone
Sometimes I love the things they said
Some things were cold as stone it was lonely
Sometimes, sometimes it was mood-felt lights were brilliant
Sometimes, sometimes there was you being me, I laugh
So many things have changed and yet somehow
There were always be a stage, a song for me
Hold the curtain open, It's time to take a bow

Being me I laugh seeing now and then
So many things have changed and get some out
There will always be a stage, a song for me
Hold the curtain open, It's time to take a bow
