Raise the Curtain



Raise the curtain

Dim the lights

Take the stage

And shine bright


Play the part

And look to the crowd

Put on your mask

But smile proud


Don't break character

And remember your lines

Win their hearts

And steal the time


Your name's in lights

Eternal fame

Because we're all just actors

In this lively game


And when it's over

Bow down low

Because at curtain call

We'll all know


Who's the saint

And who's the sinner

We'll tally our losses

Because no one's a winner
