lyrics

5. Only in the Movies
Words & Music © Caroline Hetherton

There’s a real side to love
We never allow ourselves to see
So conditioned into thinking
The way it ought to be
Champagne and roses
Little hearts for valentine
Violins and moonlight
Desperate lovers, you are mine

Chorus:
When it finally falls upon you
Don’t be fooled, yeah, just like me
Wake up from the daydream and you will see
That it was only in the movies, only in the movies

Expectations run too high
Only to be filled with disappointment
The weak become strong, oh what a lie
Manufactured piece of sentiment
A slice of an old fantasy
That doesn’t apply to you and me
Made that mistake a long time ago
Now I know what’s real or make believe

Chorus:
When it finally falls upon you
Don’t be fooled, yeah, just like me
Wake up from the daydream and you will see
That it was only in the movies, only in the movies

Chorus:
When it finally falls upon you
Don’t be fooled, yeah, just like me
Wake up from the daydream and you will see
That it was only in the movies, only in the movies
It was only in the movies
It was only in the movies
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Only in the movies
Only in the movies
Only
Only in the movies
Only in the movies
Only
Silver screen come to me
Silver screen come to me
