The Actress

by Xander Nelson



You’re not the product of the story
You’re the girl that changed the plot
Knocked the wind out of the players
Let me give you what I got

You take the torch and light the fires
In the hearts of better men
Spark ambition and desires
And turn their heads around again

Where will we be,
When the sun decides to rain down on me?
Where will we be,
When black and white are all that I see?
The one thing I know for sure
Is you’ll still be with me

You take my script and work your magic
You grace the movements with your poise
And when I first laid eyes upon you
The man inside me became a boy


I never was much of an actor
I can barely play the part
But if I’m to truly love you
This would be the place to start
