The Role

I am the man who is perfect for the role
I am the man whose part another stole

I should have been the leading man but have no leading lady
I went to the audition but another man upstaged me

So now here, i wait, patiently in the wings
Just the understudy who in the chorus sings

He is just a player, putting on an act
I have the passion which his performance lacks

But the audience seems to love him and alas, they dont love me
So i guess a walk on part…Is all I’ll ever be.
