There are songs that sound like movies
There are themes that fill the screen
There are lines I say that sound as if theyre written
There are looks I wear the theater should have seen

But though Ive made my life a movie
The matinee must end by five
And I must stagger out into the blinding sunlight half alive
Wishing I were back inside the picture show

There where its always night
Notice how the screen is wide
The second role, Ive said around too tight
Will I stay? Yes, I might

Oh, widescreen wider on my eyes
Lie my mind with lies
Find the world like nothing that Ive seen
Oh, widescreen dreams are just my sighs

As we walk from out the movie
Are we acting out a scene
Does the orchestra play chords when we start loving?
Do we move just like slow motion on the screen?

Lifes a constant disappointment
When you live on celluloid
But my movie expectations are a dream
I cant avoid

Waiting for a man to say the things
That I heard in the film last night
But he doesnt want to play the role
And he cant pick his cues up right

Will I dream? Yes, I might
Oh, widescreen winding 'round my eyes
Blinding me with lies
Finding Ive been fooled by what Ive seen

No, widescreen dreams are more than you
How can lies be true?
All we have is life and mind
And love we find with a friend

Oh, let the movie end
