Won't you stay here for an hour
No I won't show you the door
Split the silence in an instant
Make the vision last some more
Because today is no rehearsal, yeah
Today is no rehearsal, no
Today is no rehearsal
Dim the lights, this is the show

Forty years or forty hours
Uninspired, the routine
Seems to drain us of our spirit
Pull us further from the scene
But today is no rehearsal. . .

And when the darkness slips around again
And the morning is come
You will feel as right, as fine, as calm, as sure as stars ascend
As the autumn in gold

I've been meaning for a while
To explain my thoughts to you
What you'd learn might just convince you
Rearrange the things you knew
Because today is no rehearsal. . .
