I'm your average dreamer
I'm a true escapist
Always expecting a happy ending

Maybe I've been watching
Too many movies
Maybe I should grow up
And stop pretending

When I saw your face though
Everything was slow-mo
And I started wondering why...

CHORUS:
Why can't it be
Just a pathway full of roses
Leading to a sunset view
Where the one you've always dreamed of waits
Why can't it be
It was like a movie scene
The way I felt for you
Only you, didn't fall
Now it's not like the movies at all
Woo... Oh... Ohh...

Should'a kept my heart shut
Should'a been more patient
Should'a kept an eye on my addiction

What was I expecting?
Did I have a vision
Of a scene that only
Lives in fiction

Now I know that you are
Not gonna be my costar
And I starts to wonder why...

CHORUS:
Why can't it be
Just a pathway full of roses
Leading to a sunset view
Where the one you've always dreamed of waits
Why can't it be
It was like a movie scene
The way I felt for you
Only you didn't fall
Now it's not like the movies at all...

Ohhh...

CHORUS:
Why can't it be
Just a pathway full of roses
Leading to a sunset view
Where the one you've always dreamed of waits
Why can't it be
It was like a movie scene
The way I felt for you
Only you didn't fall
Now it's not like the movies at all...

(Just a pathway full of roses
Leading to a sunset view
With the one you've always dreamed of waits
Why can't it be
It was like a movie scene the way I felt for you
Only you, didn't fall
Now it's not like the movies at all)

Woo... Oh... Ohh... Oh... Oh...
