Silent actress 
On silver screen
All the roles you play
Are you lost in between

From flapper to starlet
Wife to harlot
The faces they change
But are you still the same

When you are alone
And the cameras are off
Do you know who you are
Without make up and gloss

And I watch you amazed
By these roles that you play
And wonder if you had voice
What would you say

Would you tell all the stories
Of girls that you’ve played
Or would you mention the couches
And jobs that were stayed

How was it then
To how it is now
Speaking with out voice
Now voice without sound

Lost in the movies
But the sight is not free
The closer I look 
The less I can see
