Singer

Thay fed her a dark song to sing
Then left her on her own
There she was upon the stage
So far away from home
The girl reached up to touch her face
T'was painted like a mask
They had dressed her as a stranger
To perform a simple task
And then they lit the stage so bright
For all the world to see
Her heart was racing, oh so fast
Wishing its was free
The sea of eyes was staring
Expecting her to sing
But she only knew one song
A song that meant nothing
Therefore it was a trap
But one with no escape
Though she didn't like the song
She made her voice take shape
She sang all of the song
That someone else did write
The world didn't remember her
Because she didn't sing that night
