have the walls closed in on you
aren’t you waiting in the wings
for your chance to shine
tell me Maggie dear – whisper – what is on your mind
your face it speaks of sorrow
no life in hands, that rest upon the chaise
what has happened in your world today
to bring about your pain
tell me Maggie dear – whisper – to me again
has your heart been broken
your pillow wet from tears
your despondancy overwhelms me
your mind so lost in thought
tell me Maggie dear – whisper – how this has come about
others would kill to play this part
for the spotlight to be theirs
to have the accolades bestowed
Maggie, I wish your malaise gone
but do remember – the show must still go on
