lyrics

You stood there center stage
The spotlight full on you
You’d get just what you want
Your dreams would all come true

But I knew where to look
To see through the disguise
I could see the truth
Behind the eyes

You changed from day to day
Kept the people on their heels
Showed them what to see
Told them what to feel

But I knew where to look
To see through the disguise
I could see the truth
Behind the eyes

You’re a scared and wounded little boy
Made up of greasepaint and light
Hoping no one notices
The cracks in your disguise

Through all your many changes
We came along with you
We followed you to the end
It’s what we had to do

You brought us so much joy
While wearing your disguise
Never showing
The truth behind the eyes

about

Letter Seventeen Norcross

Whimsical indie pop from a one-man band. Except when other people help. Which is quite often. So it's not like a one-man band at all.
Oh. And there are songs about donkeys.
