Limelight - Lyrics by Alan Parson Project, The


Lyrics

i can see the glow of a distant sun
I can feel it inside
Maybe this day could be the one

I can hear the roar of a distant crowd
They are waiting for me
Calling my name
Shouting out loud

Holding on isn't always easy
I ain't gonna change my mind

Limelight you were all i ever wanted
Since it all began
Limelight shining on me
Telling the world who i am
Limelight don't let me slip right through your
Fingers
There's a long way to fall
After all the years of waiting
I'm gonna show them all

I can see the world in a different light
Now it's easy to say
Where i went wrong
What i did right

I can hear the beat of a different drum
Take it all in my stride
Hold my head high
Second to none

Holding on wasn't always easy
Nothing can change my mind

Limelight you were all i ever wanted since it all
Began
Limelight shining on me telling the world who i am
Limelight don't let me slip right through your
Fingers
There's a long way to fall
After all the years of waiting i'm gonna show them
All
Maybe the role's not easy, maybe the prize is small
After all the years of waiting i'm gonna show them
All
