Backstage Lyrics By Gene Pitney

    a thousand hands applaud tonight
    i sing my songs my star shines bright
    i stop and smile i take my bow
    i leave the stage and then somehow

    backstage i’m lonely backstage i cry
    you’ve gone away and each night i seem to die a little

    out on that stage i play the star
    i’m famous now i’ve come so far
    a famous fool i let love go
    i didn’t know i’d miss you so

    backstage i’m lonely backstage i cry
    hating myself since i let you say goodbye

    every night a different room
    every night a different club
    and yet i’m lonely all the time
    when i sign my autograph
    when i hold an interview
    can’t get you out of my mind

    come back my love come back to me
    i need you now so desperately
    what good is fame it’s just a game
    i’d give it all to be the same

    backstage i wait now hoping i’ll see
    your smiling face waiting there backstage for me
    your smiling face waiting backstage for me
