There could be an audience of a million strong, I would be okay with that, because the only person's opinion I cared for was my number one fan. So regardless of the glare of the lights or the expanse of the stage, I was always in his arms, always right there in that first moment we looked deeply into each other's eyes and felt that spark of passion. I could stand up and speak to anyone, anywhere in the world and it would be the same as sitting on my couch at home. That's what love can do, it can bring out the strong version of you and shield you from the nonsense the unthinking can cast your way.

They weren't some polite crowd from the rich end of town. They were hungry for excitement after a day of grind in the factories. They jostled for the best position, cheering and singing a few of their favorite lines. Then the band would come on stage, paid for by the elite. Which would be nice of them if it wasn't just to stave off the insurrection their advisors warned them of.
