You won’t find me under the spotlight.
You won’t find me trying to play the lead all night.
I’m not the main attraction,
But that’s alright.
I’m just an extra, I was never born to play the lead.
While others reap the rewards, I was just meant to sow the seeds.
I was never meant to be part of the show. I was only mean’t to show you to your seats.
I won’t try to seek the limelight.
But I wouldn’t mind a taste of the lead role just for one night.
Take the centre-stage of your heart,
Before my Fairy God Mother takes it all away at midnight.
God gave me a role to play in life.
The least I can do is try to play it right.
Just like how a cat was never meant to bark,
Silly me was never meant to take the leading part.
So if I ever don’t get a standing ovation,
Or be included in the after-show conversations,
I’ll be fine because I’ve served my purpose.
…that is… Play The Background…
