The downbeat starts the show
And every time we turn a page,
You're louder than the music
For your smile fills the stage.
The melody is playing
And the beauty may befall,
You're closer than the audience
For your face can move the hall.
The song begins right now
And with the other actors gone,
You're brighter than the spotlight
For your eyes keep beaming on.
I never hear the words
Because the figure there is you...
You're stronger than the curtain
For your voice just shines right through.
