Standing on the corner
Trying to hail a cab
You tap me on the shoulder
My heart about to stop, it was fine
You asked me for directions
You was going my way
I had no objections
I couldn't be blase, you were fine
The move was so electric
You were so magnetic
Just like in the movies
Just like in the movies

Thursday at the Plaza
Friday at the Ritz
You were all I wanted
And we sealed it with a kiss
You were mine
I felt your arms around me
I was so secure
I knew that love had found me
I knew it couldn't go
You were mine
We look so fine together
Love will last forever
Just like in the movies
Just like in the movies

Get yourself together
Love to last forever
Just like in the movies
Just like in the movies

I just found a picture
Dusty on the shelf
Gazing at the mirror
Smiling to myself
I'm alive
If is but a moment
Wonder where it all went
Just like in the movies
Just like in the movies

If is but a moment
Wonder where it all went
Just like in the movies
Just like in the movies
Just like in the movies
Just like in the movies
Just like in the movies
