Under the intense glare of a spotlight
a man can be seen bowing to stagefright.

His partner in crime is free to observe
as he tries in vain to regain his nerve.

He never thought he’d see the night
when this girl he would not excite,
but now he lies awake with his own
flesh and bone.

He figures in time a scene he might steal
but now he’s acting the villain for real.

His partner in crime is free to observe
as he tries in vain to regain his nerve.

He never thought he’d see the night
when this girl he would not excite,
but now he lies awake with his own
flesh and bone.

He never thought he’d see the night
when this girl he would not excite,
but now he lies awake with his own
flesh and bone.

Flesh and bone.

Flesh and bone.
