There are songs that sound like moviesThere are themes that fill the screenThere are lines I sayThat sound as if they're writtenThere are looks I wearThe theater should have seenBut though I've made my life a movieThe matinee must end by fiveAnd I must stagger outInto the blinding sunlight half aliveWishing I were backInside the picture showThere where it's always nightNotice how the screen is wideThe second roleI've said around too tightWill I stay?Yes, I might
Oh widescreen wider on my eyesLie my mind with liesFind the worldLike nothing that I've seenOh widescreen dreams are just my sighsAs we walk from out the movieAre we acting out a sceneDoes the orchestra play chordsWhen we start loving?Do we move just like slow motionOn the screen?
Life's a constant disappointmentWhen you live on celluloidBut my movie expectationsAre a dream I can't avoidWaiting for a man to say the thingsThat I heard in the film last nightBut he doesn't want to play the roleAnd he can't pick his cues up rightWill I dream? Yes, I might!
Oh widescreen winding round my eyesBlinding me with liesFinding I've been fooled by what I've seenNo, widescreen dreams are more than youHow can lies be true?All we have is life and mindAnd love we find with a friendOh let the movie end
