I was waiting for a cross-town train in the london underground
A love that would look and sound like a movie so I changed
"I need you to pretend that we are in love again" and you agreed to
I want so badly to believe that "there is truth, that love is real"
I greased the lens and framed the shot using a friend as my stand-in
The marker snapped and I yelled "quiet on the set"
And I kissed you in a style that clark gable would have admired

And I want life in every word to the extent that it's absurd
That your perfect verse is just a lie you tell yourself to help you get by?
