lyrics

Never been one for the theatre
Vaudeville or the Cabaret
But I would queue around the block for hours
Just to see my favourite band play

And I don’t care if I catch Pneumonia
When it’s pouring down with rain
Because I’m making friends at the show that night
These memories will never fade

I’m singing
La la la la, la la la la
With a thousand people behind me
Sweat from the walls
To the Four To The Floor
Makes me move my feet
and I might cry tonight
I might smile tonight
In the best possible way
I’m singing
La la la la, la la
That’s the reason
I grew up to take the stage

I remember being late for classes
Because I stayed out the night before
Waiting to meet my idols
In the cold by the stage door

They might take a picture
And sign something for me
That kindness meant everything
But when words fail, music speaks

I’m singing
La la la la, la la la la
With a thousand people behind me
Sweat from the walls
To the Four To The Floor
Makes me move my feet
and I might cry tonight
I might smile tonight
In the best possible way
I’m singing
La la la la, la la
That’s the reason
I grew up to take the stage

And I hope this feeling lasts
Not just a faze, no it won’t pass
As the crowd fell silent as the ballad sung
And they rose up again just to sing along
And I hope, one day I can do the same.
