"Movie Stars and Super Models" as written by and Stephen Bryce Avary....
How come my life ain't like this movie?
I should try to look some more like that.
And maybe then I could be a movie star,
And maybe then you'd always laugh at my jokes.
'cause life would be just like this movie,
And I would never feel alone. In fact,
All the problems that I have would go away,
And I would forget how to feel sad.

'cause this silver screen that I'm looking at
Is making me a little bored of my life 'cause
Its not what I'm looking at,
'cause this has so much more of excitement,
Thrills, and adventurous things in every life.
And a sparkle is the reflection in my eye.

Ba ba ba ba, ba ba ba ba.
If only the shows were as real as the glows
Then we'd never see the same,
But I guess we'll never know.
Ba ba ba ba, ba ba ba ba.
Well they showed it, and we bought it.
So you see it's not just me, its sweet - It's in the movie.

She wants a better body and some super model moves.
'cause in her head she's always been the ugly one.
Well hey, we think we're ugle too.
And it's true that we will never know
All of the things that she could have known.
Well I wonder when she thought it was that she would win?
'cause man she got so thin.

Every now and then she would start to pretend
Like she was a star and in the movies they're in.
But it's strange 'cause it seems
There's never happy endings.
Is it make believe?

Ba ba ba ba, ba ba ba ba.
If only the shows were as real as the glows
Then we'd never see the same,
But I guess we'll never know.
Ba ba ba ba, ba ba ba ba.
Well they showed it, and we bought it.
So you see it's not just me, its sweet - It's in the movie.

    General Commentthis is my favorite rocket summer song, i don't know why no one has commented yet. i think this song is about a guy who likes a girl who has a lot of low self esteem who wants to go and get all these plastic surgerys and such to look like people in movies and on tv. and he just thinks is silly because everyone wants to look like all the movie stars and have their lives that seem so perfect.

    General Commentthis song is so incredible..i think its about how hollywood and celebrities change our ideas of life and how everyone aims to be famous and perfect and beautiful.
    "She wants a better body and some super model moves.
    Cuz in her head she's always been the ugly one.
    Well hey, we think we're ugle too.
    And it's true that we will never know
    all of the things that she could have known.
    Well I wonder when she thought it was that she would win?
    Cuz man she got so thin.

    Every now and then she would start to pretend like she was a star and in the movies they're in.
    But it's atrange cuz it seems
    there's never happy endings.
    Is it make believe?"

    that part of the lyrics is a story about a girl who tried to be perfect, but tried to hard and got so skinny and unhealthy. she would pretend that she was famous, but happy endings are make believe so she never got what she wanted

    General Commentimo its about everyone wanting to be like the hollywood image, the cookie cutter image society has set as beautiful,
    and how he knows their is no such thing as hollywood perfection and how he prefers his life cause its more real and has more adventure than the movies cause everything doesnt always end happily ever after

    General CommentI agree with votre mere, I definitely hear "If only the shows were as real as the CLOTHES"
    and "They SHOT it and we bought it"
    I lovelovelove this song. Sounds like what a lot of girls go through, with trying to look like someone they idolize. and ending up really unhealthy.
    Sad, but true.

    General Commenti love this song with a passion. this song is SO sincere. i know before i've wanted to be like what i saw on tv, but then i realized.. i'm just me.
    and my favorite part is "cause in her head she's always been the ugly one; well hey, we think we're ugly too." I LOVE IT, wow.
    sometimes it's a little pathetic how peoples' self esteem goes down the drain because of the retarded celebrities who set the bar.
    celebrities are just as screwed up as any other person. what makes them so special?

    General CommentThis is one of those songs that I hear so often and sing along to that I kind of forget it's meaning.
    Lately I have been analyzing pop culture and basically what he's talking about in this song.

    "Well they showed it, and we bought it".

    SO TRUE ABOUT TODAY'S SOCIETY.
