The Fixx – No Hollywood Ending lyrics

When the curtain falls
And the final scene has ended
The audience has left the stalls
The actor stops pretending
This is no Hollywood ending

Stares from behind the mask
Silent, he stands screaming
Love always plays the part
Just as the mind starts bending
This is no Hollywood ending
This is no Hollywood ending

Successful, doomed to fail
From the spotlight to the wings
As you strip away the veil
Through makeup to the skin
This is no Hollywood ending

There's no use in us pretending
For us, there'll be no Hollywood ending
