It's not enough to act
because that's just pretense
we have enough of it in real life
Instead, right here, now
give me something real
Show me the character you are
read the script? go beyond the words
not everything is told in the story!
you're not a being someone made of paper and thoughts
when you're up there in the L I G H T S?
you are so human you will C R Y
don't you dare try to "fake it till you make it"
(cause it'll bite you in the ass)
you need to be so genuine
and so real
that your damn heart can't take it!
Don't give me that crap
I know you're taught to hide
and life taught you how to lie
Today you're real!
And today you feel!
So go up there now!
take off that mask while you're at it!
This is your show
and you're the star!
Get out there.
It's your turn!
