"Backstage" as written by and David Hirschfelder....
A thousand hands applaud tonight
I sing my songs my star shines bright
I stop and smile, I take by bow
I leave the stage and then somehow

Backstage I'm lonely
Backstage I cry
You've gone away and each night I seem to die a little

Out on that stage I play the star
I'm famous now I've come so far
A famous fool I let love go
I didn't know I'd miss you so

Backstage I'm lonely
Backstage I cry
Hating myself since I let you say goodbye

Every night a different girl
Every night a different club
And yet I'm lonely all the time
When I sign my autograph
When I hold an interview
Can't get you out of my mind

Come back my love
Come back to me
I need you now so desperately
What good is fame it's just a game
I'd give it all to be the same

Backstage I wait now hoping I'll see
Your smiling face waiting there backstage for me
Your smiling face waiting there backstage for me
Backstage, Backstage

    Oh, yes, success makes people forget about loved ones, but there always comes a time to face the loneliness...
    Famous people are people still, and they also need to be loved and to love, it is just that the flashing lights of success sometimes blind them...

    Nice lyrics!
