The Stage (Wedding Song)

White Belt Warrior - Ninja Club Vol. 1 Cover

Lyrics

The projections across the sky have changed
To a pinkish golden hue
The actors are taking their places
Scuttling past with hot drinks in costume suits
And the animatronics is truly convincing
They sound just like birds in that purpose-built tree
But I’ll be waiting in the coldest of air conditioning
Every time they set up this scene

Cause the next take is you driving up the road
Parking in that customary spot
Smiling as you nudge the car into place
As it was likely drawn out in the stage plot
And I can kinda make out some podcast mumbling inside
Before you switch the engine off
To come out to greet me in the alleged morning
With your fuzzy hair and a well-timed yawn

Cause it’s all clever carpentry, costuming and props
And the world’s just a stage for me and you
Cause it all fades away when you hold me it all stops
And the world’s just a stage for me and you
For me and you
For me and you

The scaffolding is well hidden
I send my compliments to the art director
I’m also impressed with how much they’ve done
Cause this set stretches on forever
But I can tell not from looking, but
From the way that I feel
When you wrap your arms around me and hold me tight
Nothing else feels even a fraction as real

Cause it’s all clever carpentry, costuming and props
And the world’s just a stage for me and you [for me and you]
Cause it all fades away when you hold me it all stops
And the world’s just a stage for me and you [for me and you]
For me and you
For me and you

[Instrumental]

Cause it’s all clever carpentry, costuming and props
And the world’s just a stage for me and you
Cause it all fades away when you hold me it all stops
And the world’s just a stage for me and you
For me and you
For me and you
For me and you
For me and you
