Lyrics

The Understudy
Words and Music by Lachlan Bryan & Harmony James

There’s an understudy waiting in the wings
He can dance and he can act and he can sing
So you better find somebody to trust
Find somebody to love and hold on

There’s no guarantee your lover will be true
But that doesn’t mean she doesn’t care for you
She just stumbled on to new love
But it’s you that led her to love so hold on

You’ve been spent like a ten dollar bill
Sold like a new car but you’re standing still
And I wouldn’t obsess over every piece of the puzzle
Don’t buy yourself trouble
Oh I know you will

There’s a consequence to every single act
So you better find someone to have your back
Maybe get yourself a lawyer
To do the talking for you
And hold on

You’ve been lost like a child on the street
You’ve had the rug pulled from under your feet
But I wouldn’t obsess over every word in the script
It’s not finished yet
It’s far from complete

There’s an understudy waiting in the wings
He can dance and he can act and he can sing
So you better be somebody to love, be somebody to trust
And hold on
