You be you and I’ll be me
Never mind who we used to be
The script has changed
All except the names
Tragedy to comedy

Forget the lines we memorized
Laugh them off and improvise
The world’s a stage
It ain’t on the page
Curtains up, hit the lights

It’s opening night wonderful and frightening
Everything is happening right now
No costumes and no make-up no hiding and no faking
Take a bow it’s opening night

It was easier in a way
When the words we used to say
Seemed to be
Something neither you or me
Could ever hope to change

It’s opening night wonderful and frightening
Everything is happening right now
No costumes and no make-up no hiding and no faking
Take a bow it’s opening night

The critics are waiting for their cue
But they’re just actors playing me and you
