I wish that life was like it is in the movies
Cause the hero always gets his way
No matter how hard it gets on that dark, lonely road
At the end he's got a smile on his face
But when they threw me out to the lions
No one saved me as I fell from your grace
And no one wrote me new lines for what I said wrong
And what I did wrong I could not erase.

This is real life, this is real love, this is real pain that much I'm sure of
These are real tears, these are real fears inside that I can't hide

I wish that I could be a white knight in armor
With an army just to bring you back home
But I'll admit I'm scared of dialing your number
Someone else is gonna answer the phone
Why can't it be like it is on tv?
When the orchestra plays and you come back to me.

This is real life, this is real love, this is real pain that much I'm sure of
These are real tears, these are real fears inside that I can't hide

This is real life, this is real love
These are real wounds that I'm bleeding from
And I realize this is real.

I always thought that our love was a story book tale
God knows that I'd never dream in the end it would fail.

This is real life, this is real love, this is real pain that much I'm sure of
These are real tears, these are real fears inside that I can't hide

This is real life, this is real love
These are real wounds that I'm bleeding from
And I realize this is real.
