Another town, don’t know it’s name
An empty feeling, just the same
A silent drive, another show, to a lonely hotel room I’ll go
At times like these I miss you so

But 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
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 there, backstage for me

Backstage, backstage, backstage
You’re waiting for me backstage
You’re waiting for me backstage
Waiting for me backstage, waiting for me backstage
