Encore by Tory Cottingham
From the back of the curtains, the actor walks out.
From the black of the shadows, his audience starts to shout.
His voice starts to shiver.
His legs start to shake,
But nobody's watching him close,
But the one whom he cares the most (for).
I know I could never say
'Drop it, honey, I'm sorry, ' because I ain't.
I know I'm too overconfident.
I could never be anything but obvious, love,
But I know I'm not in your thoughts tonight.
She's asking every question;
He's failing her test.
She's watching his eyes and he knows he's not the best.
