While it may come as a shock, I wasn't born to love you
Though you've tried every trick known to Madison Avenue
I'll eat all chocolate fed to me, I'll ride in the park
But it's only fair to tell you you're whistling in the dark.

I can't remember anything you've ever said
You don't hold a candle to the movies in my head
I can't remember any life I might have led
I sit in the dark and watch the movies in my head
I'm always starring in the movies in my head.

You can tell me all your secrets 'til you're blue in the face
You can stare in my eyes but I'll be off in a daze
In my Indonesian palace I will probably stay
You can give me rings and roses, I will throw them away.

I can't remember anything you've ever said
You don't hold a candle to the movies in my head
I can't remember any life I might have led
I sit in the dark and watch the movies in my head
I'm always starring in the movies in my head.

I can't remember anything you've ever said
You don't hold a candle to the movies in my head
I can't remember any life I might have led
I sit in the dark and watch the movies in my head
I'm always starring in the movies in my head.

    My Interpretationomigod, love this song, it really just does not get any better. 80s catchy style, awesome lyrics, dry humor ... makes me feel better about the times I've been dumped, because often when you get to the point of dumping someone, if you're honest, you don't really care about them. you just want to get away.
