Stage-fright - that kinda thing.


Going to another show,
In this new town.
You’d think I’d be a pro
but really I get nervous all the time.

You think I’d be fine,
keep calm in-line,
sitting back stage sipping tea, sluggin’ wine.
Well that just goes to show.

The worst, they don’t know.
The place I go, oh
the worst they don’t know.
The places I go.

And as I walk up to the stage I,
bring out my guitar and I’m trying to gauge
who’s really interested
in what I play.

Most of the people here,
don’t even know me
so nerves shouldn’t be an issue
but they always are for me.


They tap along as I play
and suddenly the fear goes way.
Until I stand up next to the mic -
I’ve gotta sing now but inside I’m like:

The words aren’t coming out, they’re not coming out.
Gonna have to shout.
The words aren’t coming out, they’re not coming out.
I’m nervous, to say the least. - [6 bars in line]

My lungs tighten,
I can barely breathe.
I’ve got to get these words out please.
Before these people start wanting to go.

I only accepted this
as a request.
I never knew it would turn out such a mess
but that’s the way things go.


I’ve got to get it before this how is over,
my face is getting redder
my ears are getting warmer
but I know I can still make it right.

Don’t breath in tight, hold your head high.
Pretend there’s no one but you and I.
I know nerves are a pain but it’s something
we just gotta fight - we gotta fight it.


I will over come you.
I will over come you.
I will overcome you, yeah.
