Lyrics
Verse1
I was waiting for a cross-town train in the london underground
When it struck me/ that I've been waiting since birth to find
A love that would look and sound like a movie/ so I changed
My plans and rented a camera and a van and then I /called you
"I need you to pretend that we are in love again" and you /agreed to

chorus
I want so badly to believe that "there is truth, that love is real"
And I want life in every word to the extent that it's absurd
verse2
I greased the lens and framed the shot using a friend as my stand-in
The script it called for rain but it was clear that day so we faked it
The marker snapped and I yelled "quiet on the set"
And then called "action!"
And I kissed you in a style that clark gable would have admired
(I thought it classic)

Chorus (play the chorus part above twice for this)
I want so badly to believe that "there is truth, that love is real"
And I want life in every word to the extent that it's absurd
I know you're wise beyond your years, but do you ever get the fear
That your perfect verse is just a lie you tell yourself to help you get by?
Semi instrumental part (snare drum intro)
That your perfect verse is just a lie you tell yourself to help you get by? (2x)
