Face to Face
by Sharon
So there we were
finally face to face
Lights flashing like smiles
you fit right in this place
People swirling ‘round you
like flies on a can
You’ve forgotten who you are
Where’s that strong burning man? 

The words you sing 
seem straight from the heart
Your green eyes pierce 
any doubt from the start
What you want and what you have 
are two different things
Will it all be so charmed 
when you have what life brings?

You make a few special 
for just one night in time
They reach for you, sell their souls 
and know they’re last in line
The chosen will take with them a memory 
and a little piece of you
The hero up on the stage that night
made all their dreams come true 

Here I stand watching you 
with a wonder in my eye
I want so bad for you to know me 
but can’t tell you why
I’m there in the background
waiting for you to see
What you think may be so good for you 
is not always free

So, there we were 
finally face to face
Lights flashing like smiles 
you fit right in this place
People swirling ‘round you 
like flies on a can
You’ve forgotten who you are
Where’s that strong burning man?
