I couldn't see beyond the corner to the stage
From my place between the cowboy and the clown
Mummy dressed me up and left me with a kiss
For the talent show now beginning
The curtain coming down
Just enough to hear them say

Oh, bravo, you're the best, there is no-one else
Oh, bravo, our applause is not enough
Can you hear us yell, oh, yell, oh
On and on and on and on we go
Bravo

One by one they came and left us all amazed
Everyone so elegant, it made me feel so plain
The clown so colourful, the ballerina danced and twirled
And I thought 'clearly, they're all better than my little song'
And they deserve to hear the praise

Oh, bravo, you're the best, there is no-one else
Oh, bravo, our applause is not enough
Can you hear us yell, oh, yell, oh
On and on we go
Bravo

Running off the stage with bitter tears of shame
Close my eyes and try so hard to make it go away
I just wanna go home and tell my teddy bear "I failed, I failed!"
I turned around the corner just to hear my daddy say

Oh, bravo, you're the best, you're my only one
Oh, bravo, that will always be enough
Look at me, your song was beautiful, beautiful
And even if nobody ever knows
Bravo

Oh, bravo, you're the best, there is no-one else
Oh, bravo, our applause is not enough
Can you hear us yell, oh, yell, oh
On and on we go
Bravo

    General CommentI think this could be our song to God. we are just a small act in the play of life, and we feel like we didnt do good or are worthless, then our daddy, Jesus, comes in and says we did just fine and He is proud of us.

    General Commenti think this is like talking about how we walk through life just trying to out-do each other and we fight and fight to be number one but there is always someone who's better and ends up beating us. and when we get beat we give up because all we hear is the crowd cheering for the one who beat us and we feel like we failed because we lost. and the daddy is g-d saying you know what no matter what they didn't beat you because you were the only one in my eyes and there is nothing that can take that from you
