Be kind when you rewind the story of how the two of us
Sometimes you wish it was a little more mysterious
When you look at me with your cinematic eyes
I wanna play the part but I forget the lines

I do it all the time
I never get it right

One day when you replay the slideshow that we know
Pictures won't show villains and heroes
It's just me keeping time with you
Butter knife's dull but it still cuts through

We never were
We'll never be

Strangers kissing in the pouring rain
Chasing after your leaving train
But we know that's not how our song goes ohh
You're a waitress in a cocktail bar
And I'll save you cause I'm a big rock star
But we know that's not how our song goes
It goes like this (x2)

You didn't like my friends and your mom didn't trust me
I thought I was slick but my moves are rusty
Bought you a 12 pack and promised you sushi
Sorry if I wasn't straight out of a movie

We never were
We'll never be

Strangers kissing in the pouring rain
Chasing after your leaving train
But we know that's not how our song goes
You're a waitress at a cocktail bar
And I'll save you cause I'm a big rock star
But we know that's not how our song goes
It

Be kind when you rewind the story of the two of us
Sometimes you wish it was a little more mysterious
When you look at me with your cinematic eyes
I wanna play the part but I keep messing up the lines

We never were
We'll never be

[Chorus:]

    Life cannot be reduced to a movie scene or script. Life is not a fairytale where there is a perfect prince and a needy damsel to be rescued and made a partaker of wealth and comfort and ever after happiness. Those are idealist stories, the telling of fertile and idealistic imaginations. Then they are played by actors and actresses that 'act out' the idealism. But, reality comes down to the mundane, burnt toast, stumbles and falls, disappointments and regrets and "ho-hum" days without fireworks; but with real smiles, hugs and kisses, both serious and trivial talk and wins and losses that all work together to make memories, deepen love, and keep you yearning for more of the same. It become unique and enduring because it is two people merging into a union that is a mutual inward song, not something on a screen. It is melody, music and magic without an orchestra or even a violin or even a banjo.
