"Only in the Movies" as written by and John Kander Fred Ebb....
She's burning out on apathy
Unsure of where she wants to be
If she could change the world I think she'd rather sleep
18 and feeling out of place

Frustrated that she can't relate
Knee deep in disillusion of her mental state

In time you will learn to stand up on your feet
'Cause only in the movies can you replay every scene
Until it comes out clean

Move to a lower east side dorm
She's got no friends to call her own
Still can't get used to living far away from home
So bored to death of being bored

Ambition seems to go ignored
Her disposition is decaying at the core

In time you will learn to stand up on your feet
Cause only in the movies can you replay every scene
Until it comes out clean

All things are good and some are bad
It's really what you make of it
You're locked inside a world that's planned out just for you

She's burning out on apathy
Unsure of where she wants to be
If she could change the world I think she'd rather sleep

In time you will learn to stand up on your feet
'Cause only in the movies can you replay every scene
Until it comes out clean
