The curtain slowly rises up
The spectators are all dressed in black
It's like a funeral held just for us
And we're starting the first act

The silence echoes through the room
This scene is dry and stale
Then like a flower your beauty blooms
And the room is filled with air

I don't know what's going on
I didn't write these lines
If something turns out wrong
You can blame it all on time
I don't know what to tell you
I didn't write this script
Let's just play the whole thing through
And pray it ends with a kiss

This is where you sing your solo
The crowd starts to fall in love
Your voice rings out and starts to echo
It touches everyone

The smiles on the faceless people
Tell us this final scene's our last chance
The world's become so evil
Will it turn us to tradgedy instead of romance

I don't know what's going on
I didn't write these lines
If something turns out wrong
You can blame it all on time
I don't know what to tell you
I didn't write this script
Let's just play the whole thing through
And pray it ends with a kiss

Now it's time for the final bow
We just got a standing ovation
I can see the headlines now
Five stars and a celebration

From the roses raining down on stage
To the lights and camera crew
And the orchestra plays it's last serenade
But all I see is you

I know what's going on
I wrote all of these lines
Nothing could ever go wrong
I can tell when I look in your eyes
I know just what to tell you
I'll write a brand new script
And when all of this is through
We'll have our goodnight kiss
