Narrator: Ruby, 1953 I love the lights The chorus of the streets at night Feels like you can be everything I love the stage The roar of an audience crashing like a wave Against a world of stone that only wants to turn you into bones That's how it starts Just wanting to be more than a spark In an endless dark I’ve got so much to give I didn't love you Not like I needed to, not like I should You were two little faces reminding me time had got by me good So I left you behind Far enough away to ease my mind I hoped we’d all grow in the meantime But one day you see It’s not dying, but living only for yourself That makes you feel empty I've got so much to give I didn’t need to keep it all I could have loved myself and you
