"Waiting in the Wings" is a song sung by Cassandra in the Rapunzel's Tangled Adventure episode, "Rapunzel and the Great Tree". Cassandra expresses her ever growing tiredness and frustration over never getting the chance to prove herself and longs to finally prove her worth, no longer wanting to be sidelined or overshadowed.
Guess we all are born with parts to play
Some of us are stars, and some are just in the way
I know I was meant for glory
But that's never what my story brings
And yet I keep on waiting
When you have the passion and the drive
You expect your moment centre stage to arrive
I show up with heart ablazing
Ready to achieve amazing things
But I'm left waiting in the wings
I hear my cue
And yet I'm kept there waiting
Know what to do
And still I stand there waiting
It's always someone else who sings
While I'm left waiting in the wings
And so I keep on keeping on
My chances come and then I blink and they're gone
Always overlooked unfairly
While pretending that it barely stings
But it stings, yes, it stings
And I'll shed no tears
I'll only keep on waiting
If no-one cheers
Well, I can keep on waiting
Who cares how loud the silence rings
You'll find me waiting in the wings...
