Katy Perry – Not Like The Movies lyrics

He put it on me, I put it on
Like there was nothing wrong
It didn’t fit, it wasn’t right
Wasn’t just the size

They say you know when you know
I don’t know
I didn’t feel the fairy-tale feeling, no
Am I a stupid girl
For even dreaming that I could

If it’s not like the movies
That’s how it should be, yeah
When he’s the one, I’ll come undone
And my world will stop spinning
And it’s just the beginning, yeah

Snow White said when I was young,
“One day my prince will come”
So I wait for that day
They say it’s hard to meet your match
Find my better half
So we make perfect shapes

The stars don’t align
If it doesn’t stop time
If you can’t see the sign
Wait for it
One hundred percent
Worth every penny spent
He’ll be the one that finishes your sentences

If it’s not like the movies
That’s how it should be, yeah
When he’s the one, I’ll come undone
And my world will stop spinning
And it’s just the beginning

‘Cause I know you’re out there
And you’re, you’re looking for me, oh
It’s a crazy idea, babe
You were made perfectly for me, you see

Just like the movies
That’s how it will be
Cinematic and dramatic
With a perfect ending

It’s not like the movies
But that’s how it should be, yeah
When he’s the one, you’ll come undone
And your world will stop spinning
And it’s just the beginning

    The lyrics of that is really nice and meaningful it difinitely talks about somewhat like tentative love. The girl is expecting a very wonderful experiences from that relationship but it doesn't happened that why she said that's what it should be. We can also relate this to our lives we knew that all of us are experiencing this kind of feeling a feeling that always there deep inside our heart.
