I’m at the movies
But the guy in front of me is really tall
I try to see past him
But I can’t see anything at all
The future lies in front of us but you’ve blinded me so
That when I try to see our opportunity, everything explodes

This story line seems silly
And the plot seems a little false
But you’ve put distance between us
So you can’t feel my pulse

I’m sorry you’re feeling desperate
And I’m sorry you’re feeling low
But that’s just the way the script was written
In our lives
The latest picture show

Would you like popcorn?
You say the line goes on for miles
But aren’t you hungry?
Maybe I’ll eat in a little while
The future lies in front of us but you’re impatient as can be
Maybe if you tried being yourself, you too could see


The final credits roll
You decide to take a stroll
To discuss why in the end I saw you sighing

You said the acting wasn’t great
And there’s nothing you didn’t hate
But I could of sworn I saw you crying

You’re just trying to cause a shake up
But I like you without make up
So stop hiding behind yourself
Cuz I’ve been there myself

Chorus (2nd part)

    General CommentBy far one of my most favorite songs I ever wrote... I wanted a song I could use in my life personally time after time, and the only thing to do in my town sometimes seems to be going to the movies... this song reminds me of every trip to the movies I spent with a girl who broke my heart...
