All alone city streets
Late at night off the beat
Hear footsteps more than two
Someone might be after you

It only happens in the movies
This is life it's not the movies
It only happens in the movies
Oh my god it's not the movies

In your car drivin' home
Hitchhiker all alone
Pick him up to be nice
Toothy grin a butcher knife

It only happens in the movies
This is life it's not the movies
It only happens in the movies
Oh my god it's not the movies

Out of gas a stormy night
Big old house with just one light
Knock on door if you dare
Go on in there's no one there
Walk into a crowded room
It's deathly still it's like a tomb
People never move their heads
They don't talk 'cause they're all dead

It only happens in the movies
This is life it's not the movies
It only happens in the movies
Oh my god it's not the movies
