    It Will Be My Day

    Текст песни

    "At eighteen I grew restless for the city
    I'd see its lights that beckoned from afar
    I packed my dreams, assured I'd be successful
    I'd sing my songs, I'd soon become a star
    I needed clothes to make the right impression
    I bought a suit, the finest tailor-made
    Had an act, then designed, with the ladies in mind
    Endure the debt I felt would be repaid
    I dreamed I would be emblazoned in neon
    The biggest, the best, above all the rest, wherever I'd play
    I dreamed I would be acknowledged the greatest
    The cream of the crop, it's good at the top, I was there to stay
    The loveliest girls would gather around me
    With photos to sign, they all would be mine for less than a smile
    My curtain would cue, resounding ovations
    Their deafening roar would ring out for more, I'd go off in style"
    The older that I become, my features are ageing
    My voice is still there, my gesture's precise, my talent would glow
    At times I've had bitterness, for nothing has happened
    I've struggled and strived, but never arrived, and I'm still unknown
    And yet, yet I believe that my time is coming
    If given the breaks, I've got what it takes to go all the way
    Then under my feet the stage would be pulsing
    Finally I'd be there in the spotlights glare, it would be my day
    For thirty years it's been an endless circle
    I've made the rounds, they always look the same
    I sing my songs, but people seldom listen
    They never care, for they don't know my name
    To keep alive, I've played the third-rate bookings
    I have no choice, I take what I can find
    Sleazy clubs, little pay, easy girls, sleep all day
    But in my dreams, I leave it far behind
    I dreamed that I'll be relating the story
    Of how I prevailed when I should have failed, in my quest for fame
    I dreamed I would be enjoying my leisure
    Taking life in stride, ladies at my side, wild from the game
    On opening night, I'll calmly be reading
    The thousands of words from those who admire my standing alone
    The stage light would dim, the moment would quicken
    My heart in my throat, hearing the first note, I'd be on my own
    I tried to find a gimmick, to lift me from darkness
    I've sung about love, I've??????
    songs, a stale joke or two
    If everything fails and I'm left in the shadows
    The fault isn't mine, I asked for a chance, but nothing came through
    I have no one to thank, for no one has offered
    To give me a hand, or take any stand, that's out of their way
    But deep in my heart, I know, I know that I have it
    And I'll get my due life and start anew, it will be my day
    "
