Drift Away

My lights gone out,
the clouds roll in;
the wind starts to blow,
the storm will begin.
Some days it hurts,
too much to see;
what purpose i serve,
who needs me?
-been crying so hard,
my eyes start hurtin';
"that's all folks!" pull
the string, close the curtain;
shows over, its done,
saying good bye, soon to be gone.
suddenly i hear someone shout,
for the show to go on;
so ill give em a moment,
turn around, take a bow;
smile and wave,
wonder what happens now;
a shudder of light shines
from the ceiling;
the music starts playing,
here comes that feeling;
the crowd gets loud,
and yells my name;
suddenly I've forgotten my
regrets, faults, and pain;
smiling now cuz the weights all gone;
sit back, relax, sing a new song;
people start to clap,
and they beg me to stay;
but is sit back,
close my eyes and just
DRIFT AWAY..:)
