"The Show" is a song originally performed by Lenka that Melanie Martinez covered while she was on The Voice.

Background

This was Melanie's second performance of the Top 6. This one was her coach, Adam Levine's choice to bring her out of the box and doing something different. The set was set up as if in a musical, with Melanie pretending to be in a boat in a certain part. It starts with a curtain opening and ends with Melanie letting go of a balloon and the curtain closing.

Lyrics

[Chorus]
I'm just a little bit caught in the middle
Life is a maze and love is a riddle
I don't know where to go, can't do it alone
I've tried and I don't know why

[Verse 1]
Slow it down, make it stop
Or else my heart is gonna pop
'Cause it's too much
Yeah, it's a lot to be something I'm not
I'm a fool out of love
'Cause I just can't get enough

[Chorus]
I'm just a little bit caught in the middle
Life is a maze and love is a riddle
I don't know where to go, can't do it alone
I've tried and I don't know why
I'm just a little girl lost in the moment
I'm so scared but I don't show it
I can't figure it out, it's bringing me down
I know I've got to let it go and just enjoy the show

[Verse 2]
The sun is hot in the sky just like a giant spotlight
The people follow the signs and synchronize in time
It's a joke nobody knows
They've got a ticket to that show, yeah

[Chorus]
I'm just a little bit caught in the middle
Life is a maze and love is a riddle
I don't know where to go, can't do it alone
I've tried and I don't know why
I'm just a little girl lost in the moment
I'm so scared but I don't show it
I can't figure it out, it's bringing me down
I know I've got to let it go and just enjoy the show
And just enjoy the show

[Chorus]
I'm just a little bit caught in the middle
Life is a maze and love is a riddle
I don't know where to go, can't do it alone
I've tried and I don't know why
I'm just a little girl lost in the moment
I'm so scared but I don't show it
I can't figure it out, it's bringing me down
I know I've got to let it go, just enjoy the show

[Outro]
I want my money back
I want my money back
I want my money back, just enjoy the show
I want my money back
I want my money back
I want my money back, just enjoy the show
