First Performance

I’m shy

Opening up my wings for the first time

It’s a thrill

It’s a crazy ride

Please be gentle

As I grab the mic

I may stutter

I may have stage fright

Lord please just let my

Words flow right

May they hit you

Like you didn’t know I

Could hold the pen

This tight

Let you feel it all

Like it’s cold as ice

I want you to know

I came here to set a mood

Make you feel real nice

I hope I make it look easy

Yeah easy

Like cooked rice

Once I leave the stage I want

To let my words linger

Linger like all night

So you’ll remember me

Tomorrow, next week

For the rest of your life

This is what I call

Being alive
