Popcorn & Roses

from by Dusty Doves



The managers will throw some money in the air tonight!
They clamber at the doors and hunger for the stage lights
The columnists and cleaners, everyone you think just might
They stagger from the bars and slide in off the half pipes

The signs will glow
And everybody will know
Facades light up
And beckon you to the show

You're fastening the cords to make you swoop and glide tonight
You're slipping on those shoes that glitter in the spot lights
The blusher on your cheeks the lashes bouncing on your eyes
You're waiting in the wings remembering your first lines

The crowd will grow
And everybody will show
The lights fade out
And hush will settle like snow

Autonomous in motion
Every mood and moment right
You're feeding off the crowd and feasting on the stage fright

Your charm will creep into the heart of every family member
You'll hold the demographic on a point upon your finger
The stage will glow and everyone'll say woh!
Your clothes light up and sparkle on the front row
