Michael Franks – Nightmoves lyrics

The music begins and the titles fade-in
Starring You and Me.
The hero is struggling to say
That his lady is far away.
In her Prison of Wishes.
We love and we fight but it's all day-for-night
Just a masquerade.
We're real till the redlight is "off."
Then we go take our faces off
Like two clowns in a sideshow.

Love is like two dreamers dreaming
The exact same dream.
Just another technicolor
Romance on the screen.

I keep you in-frame and I whisper your name
Till the picture fades.
The feeling is already gone...
I don't know why I'm going on
Can't remember The Ending.
