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

Performance

This was Melanie's second performance of the Top 6, with the first being Crazy. 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 going to 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 am 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 sign
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 am 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
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 am 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

[Bridge]
Dum de dum, dudum de dum
Just enjoy the show
Dum de dum, dudum de dum
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
