I was waiting for a cross-town train
On the London Underground
When it struck me,
(When it struck me)

That I've been waiting since birth
To find a love that would look and sound
Like a movie.

So I changed my plans,
I rented a camera and a van
And then I called you.
(And then I called you)

I need you to pretend
That we are in love again
And you agreed to.

I want so badly to believe
That there is truth,
That love is real.

And I want life in every word
To the extent that it's absurd.

I greased the lens
And framed the shot
Using a friend as my stand-in.
(As my stand-in)

The script, it called for rain
But it was clear that day
So we faked it.

The marker snapped
And I yelled "Quiet on the set"
And then called "Action".
(And then called "Action")

I kissed you in a style
Clark Gable would have admired,
I thought it classic.

I want so badly to believe
That there is truth,
That love is real.

And I want life in every word
To the extent that it's absurd.

I know you're wise beyond your years
But do you ever get the fears
That your perfect verse is just a lie
You tell yourself to help you
Get by?
