Stage Fright

This song is by The Band and appears on the album Stage Fright (1970) and on the album The Last Waltz (2002).

Now deep in the heart of a lonely kid
Sufferin’ so much for what he did
They gave this poor boy his fortune and fame
Since that day he ain't been the same

See the man with the stage fright
Just standin' up there to give it all his might
He got caught in the spotlight
But when we get to the end
He wants to start all over again

I've got firewater right on my breath
And the doctor warned me I might catch a death
He said, "You can make it in your disguise
Just never show the fear in your eyes"

See the man with the stage fright
Just standin' up there to give it all his might
He got caught in the spotlight
But when we get to the end
He wants to start all over again

Now when he says that he's afraid
Won’t you take him at his word
And for the price that the poor boy has paid
Well he gets to sing just like a bird, ooh, ooh, ooh ooh ooh

Well the brow is sweatin' and the mouth gets dry
Fancy people go driftin' by
Well the moment of truth is right at hand
Just one more nightmare you could stand

See the man with the stage fright
Just standin' up there to give it all his might
He got caught in the spotlight
But when we get to the end
Well he wants to start all over again, no, no, no
Let’s not make him stop
Just let him take it from the top
