Lyrics

 

I can ignore your dirty looks

Your nose in those mystery books

Renting DVD’s

Lost in a haze.

Your sense of contempt

At my obvious neglect

When you say those things

I act unphased.

 

Cause movies aren’t life

It has better writers

You kiss and make up

Forgive and stop fighting.

But this ain't no Hollywood

This is jeans and tee shirts

Those sounds from your mouth

Words hurt.

 

I'd take a busted arm

To save a broken heart

I'd move right out

So I wouldn't have to hear your mouth.

I'm die-hard romantic

Oh I wish we'd work it out

But it's way past fixing

You can have half your house. 

 

You could smack me in the eye

I could easily make you cry

I don't know when it happened

But I lost her. 

I saw “Fatal Attraction”

And our sequel is much worse

But this acting around here

Is worth 2 Oscars. 

 

Movies aren’t life

It has better writers

You kiss and make up

Forgive and stop fighting.

But this ain't no Hollywood

This is jeans and tee shirts

Those sounds from your mouth

Words hurt.

 

I’d take a busted arm

To save a broken heart

I'd move right out

So I wouldn't have to hear your mouth.

I'm die-hard romantic

Oh I wish we'd work it out

But it's way past fixing

You can have half of your house. 

 

Movies aren’t life

It has better writers

You kiss and make up

Forgive and stop fighting.

But this ain't no Hollywood

This is jeans and tee shirts

Those sounds from your mouth

Words hurt.
