"If We Were A Movie" as written by and Holly Mathis Jeannie Lurie....
Uh oh, there you go again, talkin' cinematic
Yeah, you
You're charming, got everybody star struck
I know how you always seem to go
For the obvious
Instead of me
But get a ticket and you'll see

If we were a movie
You'd be the right guy
And I'd be the best friend
That you'd fall in love with in the end
We'd be laughing
Watching the sunset
Fade to black
Show the names
Play the happy song

Yeah, yeah, when you call me, I can hear it in your voice
Oh sure, want to see me and tell me all about her
La la, I'll be acting through my tears
I guess you'll never know
That I should win
An Oscar for the scene I'm in

If we were a movie
You'd be the right guy
And I'd be the best friend
That you'd fall in love with in the end
We'd be laughing
Watching the sunset
Fade to black
Show the names
Play the happy song

Wish I could tell you there's a twist
Some kind of hero in disguise
And we're together
It's for real, now playing
Wish I could tell you there's a kiss
Like something more than in my mind
I see it could be amazing

If we were a movie (if we were a movie)
You'd be the right guy (right guy)
And I'd be the best friend
That you'd fall in love with in the end
We'd be laughing
Watching the sunset
Fade to black
Show the names
Play the happy song

(If we were)
If we were a movie
You'd be the right guy
(You'd be right)
And I'd be the best friend
(And I'd be)
That you'd fall in love with in the end
We'd be laughing
(We would laugh)
Watching the sunset
(Watch the sun)
Fade to black
Show the names
Play the happy song

(If we were)
If we were a movie
You'd be the right guy
(You'd be right )
And I'd be the best friend
(And I'd be)
That you'd fall in love with in the end
We'd be laughing
(We would laugh)
Watching the sunset
(Watch the sun)
Fade to black
Show the names
Play the happy song

    General CommentIn the TELEVISION show, duh. No dip, sherlock. The song's for Jake Ryan. However, there's a pretty obvious interpretation of this song; Girl likes good guy friend --> good guy friend is oblivious & dates other girls --> if situtation was a movie, Guy would fall in love with girl --> Happy ending fade to black.

    General CommentThis song is great
    and easy to relate to.
    about a girl who falls in love with her guy best friend, which is obviously hard when he talks about other girls
    "Oh sure!
    Wanna see me and tell me all about her"
    which has happened to me before.
    but she was saying if this would be like a movie, they would have a happy ending and they would end up together.

    General Commentalright, this song is on t.v and all, but it still does have some meaning to it!
    it doesnt nessisarily need to be abuot jake ryan, but the song is written for him, anyone could beable to relate in a way i guess.


    the meaning to me is that:
    she is in love with this boy, jake ryan.[or atleast thinks it]
    he always talk to her like they are perfect, cinematic[MOVIE LIKE]
    but he has every other girl that way
    he talks to all of them like that.
    he always is the one to go for the obvious girl instead of her!
    [for example miley cyrus and nick jonas dating, like obvious starr dating]
    and she just wants him to see that they would be perfect together, that they would become cinematic[movie like]

    and yeah the hole song is her and how she wants her relationship to be cinematic with him.
    but the only true acting that is going on is her acting threw her tearssss.
    which is sad.


    hahaah alright i actullyyy dont even like this song so much, but it had meaning andd i just felt like typing this all up(:

    General Commentuh, these aren't the complete lyrics.

    continued after first chorus:

    Yeah,yeah
    When you call me
    I can hear it in your voice
    Oh sure!
    Wanna see me and tell me all about her
    La la!
    I'll be acting through my tears
    Guess,you'll never know
    That I should win
    an oscar for this scene I'm in

    Chorus

    Wish I could tell you there's a twist
    Some kind of hero in the sky
    And we're together,it's for real
    Now playin'
    Wish I could tell you there's a kiss
    Like something more than in my mind
    I see it could be amazing

    Chorus - Repeat til End

    my favorite song of hers ^_^

    General Commentwell this song has a few meanings that can be interprited they are 1. a person who falls in love with a freind and their freinds so they obviously have a lot in common but is kinda shy to admit to the person about it. but and i would be the best freind you would fall in love with in the end means you are gonna fall in love with but life is not as simple as that but its not. and the other is a person who finds a celebrity attractive but its obviously hard to get a celeb so miley is saying still be my fan and watch my movies because it will just prove to you if i knew you we would fall in love.
