Theatre Of Your Mind
(Written by Ray Harris ©2009 SOCAN)

It's often been said that the world's a stage,
And life often imitates art -
Two old cliches, but come what may,
We've all played our parts -
You're the talk of the town,
You've been wined and dined -
You're a mover and a shaker,
In the theatre of your mind.

It wasn't in the tabloids, and it wasn't on TV,
But I heard about your downward spiral from -
Your tower of ivory,
Your box office ain't been buzzin' -
And the critics ain't been kind,
You're only front page news and get rave reviews -
In the theatre of your mind.

That big marquee featuring you and me - has long since been tore down,
And with your new supporting cast of players - you don't need me around,
Comedy and Tragedy - the contract that you signed,
For the role of a lifetime - in the theatre of your mind.

You were once my leading lady,
I was once your leading man -
But now best supporting actor is,
About all that I can stand -
You're an idol, you're an icon,
You're a legend in your time -
It's all gala balls and curtain calls,
In the theatre of your mind.

REPEAT CHORUS and then tags...
It ain't hot in here, it's just your career - in the theatre of your mind...
You're a walk-on part in my broken heart - in the theatre of your mind...
It's the role of a lifetime - in the theatre of your mind.
