sometimes i dig watching movies from the Hollywood golden age. one day i was hanging with a friend in our threatre watching "East of Eden" a James Dean flick. i started writing lyrics before it ended.
Ainít Life like the Movies As I return back to the stage I thought of how it felt before When I wanted more And I turned away Like Hollywoodís golden age We still make you laugh and cry As we live and die On the streets of L.A While youíre chasing that golden ring Youíd trade your very soul for a chance to live your dream But it really donít mean a thing And either way itís not what you thought itíd be Chorus Sometimes ainít life like the movies Those times when you get caught in-between When I feel the shock from a change in the plot I find myself wishing I was James Dean And just like fate Iím always late Standing in the dark Looking for one empty seat When through a cinematic glow I saw an angel waving right back at me Stepping forward, stepping back in time Back to 1953 She said you missed a lot but youíll catch the plot Hereís the spot I get to sing I sat down in a hurry Wiped my eyes because they must be blurry Then she extended her hand and said Iím pleased to meet you Iím Norma Jean. Verse 2 As the actors rehearse their lines The singers warm their chords again To step out into the lights If I knew another way Donít you think Iíd take it Like the Rat pack in the glory days Iíll bet you known of them ever had to fake it And once the Takers start to feed Theyíll twist our hearts until our souls bleed About the time youíre on your knees When somehow it occurs to you That this was your dream come true God help you if you get what you wanted Chorus Sometimes my life is like the movies Those times Iím like a rebel without a cause I loved a girl east of Eden She was perfect but she had her flaws She said boy you were born with that magic Enjoy the rise because the fall is tragic And while they mourn the loss of you Iíll be waiting on one of Jupiterís moons Aint life sometimes like the movies Have you ever played the villain to yourself? And while youíre sifting through your deleted scenes Wishing you had got some help But I wonít even show an ounce of fear As she waits there until Iím done here I sit up straight & smile at fate & play the hand I was dealt So be careful what you wish for I donít bother making wishes anymore Cause the grand faÁade Is just a soul machine It will reel you in Aint life sometimes like the movies Though I wish I could hit rewind I wish I could be the hero And save them all in the nick of time Aint life so much like the movies My film as the curtains close As the reels come apart Know I gave you my heart I always wrote from the heart I sang from the heart You were my HeartÖ
