Melanie is a feminine given name derived from the Greek μελανία (melania), "blackness" and that from μέλας (melas), meaning "dark". Borne in its Latin form by two saints: Melania the Elder and her grand-daughter Melania the Younger, the name was introduced to England by the Normans in i… more »

I'm thinking what I'm doing 
I'm thinking what I've done 
I'm thinking 'bout my mother 
Who never thought I'd come 
Quite this far from nowhere 
To hear myself be sung 
But I still haven't forgotten 
I used to do it just for fun 

When all the ones around me 
Would wonder if they saw 
Or heard me singing somewhere 
Tuning my guitar 

Knock once, I got ten minutes 
And every night's the same 
Sometimes I wish I wasn't in it 
When I hear them call my name 
Same people all around me 
And I wonder who they are 
I know they're not my family 
And they're not my friends by far

They're all the ones around me 
I wonder who they are 
They hide behind my curtain 
And they hope I'll be a star 

An' they say, "Get out and sell them" 
But selling's not my aim 
I'm gonna sing the life I'm living 
And try to ease the pain 

Of all the ones around me 
No matter who you are 
Tonight you're gonna hold the curtain 
I'm tuning my guitar

And all the ones around me 
I wonder who you are 
You hide behind my curtain 
And they hope I'll be a star 
But all the ones around me 
Who don't know who you are 
You hide and you look uncertain 
But you hope I'll be a star 

And all the ones, all around me
I don't care who you are
Tonight you're gonna hold the curtain
I'm tuning my guitar

All the ones, all the ones
All the ones around me
And I don't care who you are
Tonight you're gonna hold the curtain
I'm tuning my guitar

Oh all the ones
Who do you think that you are
Tonight you're gonna hold the
