Lyrics

I stood up on the stage I started to sing my song I said I can rectify Everything thats wrong And I couldn't understand Why people laughed I couldn't understand I collected my things and I left Because now I understand I understand

I moved across the stage I sang loud and proud in time I said I look into animals eyes And I see mine I see mine And I couldn't understand Why people laughed I couldn't understand I collected my things and I left Because now I understand I understand

Spotlight on the stage For the whole world to see I said I am she And he is me He is me

In full flight on the stage I am now so poorly lit I sing it because I could never speak it I could never speak it And I couldn't understand Why people laughed I couldn't understand I collected my things and I left Because now I understand I understand

I froze up on the stage The soul open wide And people laughed so hard That they cried
