TITLE: Limelight
Lyrics and Chords

Living on a lighted stage approaches the unreal
For those who think and feel
In touch with some reality beyond the gilded cage

/ A F#m E D / E D / A F#m E AG D AG D / 

Cast in this unlikely role, ill-equipped to act
With insufficient tact
One must put up barriers to keep oneself intact

Living in the limelight, the universal dream
For those who wish to seem
Those who wish to be must put aside the alienation
Get on with the fascination
The real relation, the underlying theme

/ F#m D E F#m / D E F#m / D E F#m D / E F#m / D E F#m (D E AG D AG D) /

Living in a fisheye lens, caught in the camera eye
I have no heart to lie
I can't pretend a stranger is a long-awaited friend

All the world's indeed a stage, and we are merely players
Performers and portrayers
Each another's audience outside the gilded cage
