We were always thinking we were better off
thinking alone.
Pull the blinds pull the punches then we follow
the wrong way home.
You wrote me out of your story,
fed me the same old lines.
Why bother with the facts we’ve got roller coaster
emotions working over time.

This ain’t the movies. This ain’t the time.
This ain’t the movies, tonight.
No star struck obsessions played in black and white

If we had a crystal ball we could have won
this fight.
Way beyond a reason of doubt we made a wrong from right.
The ties that keep us together, just fall apart at the seams.
The twisted turns that we should have learned,
plot thickens we don’t know what it means.

This ain’t the movies. This ain’t the time.
This ain’t the movies.
No death bed confessions, played in black and white.
