  • I saw the posters popping up around the city
    Pale blue and washed-out red
    I went down to the arena, pushing through
    Hoping I'd run into you
    Sweet freshly-scrubbed smell of the crowd
    All the excitement in their eyes
    We were all made young when he stepped onto the stage
    Like an animal escaping from his cage
    Raise the trumpet
    Sound the drum
    He whom the prophet spoke of long ago has come

    All of us too dazed to leave when it was over
    Dawdled by the vendors for a minute
    Gathered underneath a summer sky
    I was hoping you'd pass by
    But though I didn't see you that day, or the next
    I'm pretty sure that you were there
    Making your way among the young and happy horde
    Headed down to your award
    Raise the trumpet
    Sound the drum
    He whom the prophet spoke of long ago has come
