Limelight
Song by Rush
Lyrics
Living on a lighted stage
Approaches the unreal
For those who think and feel
In touch with some reality
Beyond the gilded cage
Cast in this unlikely role
Ill-equipped to act
With insufficient tact
One must put up barriers
To keep oneself intact
Living in the limelight
The universal dream
For those who wish to seem
Those who wish to be
Must put aside the alienation
Get on with the fascination
The real relation
The underlying theme
Living in a fish eye lens
Caught in the camera eye
I have no heart to lie
I can’t pretend a stranger
Is a long-awaited friend
All the world’s indeed a stage
And we are merely players
Performers and portrayers
Each another’s audience
Outside the gilded cage
Living in the limelight
The universal dream
For those who wish to seem
Those who wish to be
Must put aside the alienation
Get on with the fascination
The real relation
The underlying theme
Living in the limelight
The universal dream
For those who wish to seem
Those who wish to be
Must put aside the alienation
Get on with the fascination
The real relation
The underlying theme
The real relation
The underlying theme
Songwriters: Neil Elwood Peart / Gary Lee Weinrib / Alex Zivojinovich

  1. This takes me back to high school. I do love this band… it’s just hard to get past the bad memories to listen to them. It’s happening, though, slowly but surely. I’m trying to get my teenage son to listen to them… I think he’ll like them once he gets past this devil-may-care stage of his life. 🙂 Great pick! Thanks for sharing!
