​Set the Stage

This song is by The Connells and appears on the album One Simple Word (1990).

I see you shuffle on the set when you stand inside it.
And there's applause raining down that won't last.
And it's the lines that I forget that keep me around, I guess.
For something better yet.

Now there are fair weather friends.
And there are fools besides us.
Who would learn every turn and twist somehow.
And they're standing in the wings, and the the half light flickering

Set the stage.
Hey I'll tell you about the part we'll play.
Set the stage.
Hey I'll tell you about the part we'll play.

Well I've been looking to the past
'Cause I've seen the future.
And there's a song coming on that won't last long.
And it's the roles that I forget that keep me 'round, I guess

Overthrown and unwise,
In your mother's eyes.
Overthrown and unwise,
In your mother's eyes.

Set the stage.
Hey I'll tell you about the part we'll play.
Set the stage.
Hey I'll tell you about the part we'll play.

Overthrown and unwise,
In your mother's eyes.
Overthrown and unwise,
In your mother's eyes.

Set the stage.
Hey I'll tell you about the part we'll play.
Set the stage.
Hey I'll tell you about the part we'll play.
