lyrics

everything you say sound like a lie
everything you say and i know why
'cause you say it with your mouth and not your eyes
and i cant tell if you even realize
this is not the slow dance you fantasized
it never was

i am not the person in your head
but i was still created for a test
the variables tell me how to act
and sing and dance
and cry and scream
and laugh
to be a human in your arms, at that
is that so bad?

and when you see me on the big screen
on the TV
are you looking at me?
watching
looking closely
pay attention
i'm your favorite movie
when you know the script like
it's your own life
you can mouth the words
and when you say you love me
do you mean it?
'cause you sound so unsure lately
lately
all the ratings
they've been falling
'cause the acting's getting lazy
unrealistic
'cause the actor is distracted

i am not against a change of faith
but i know that you know that i'm too weak
to do it all again
this stupid song
and coordinated nation sweeping dance
at the very least i had a chance
can we stay friends

and when you see me on the big screen
on the TV
are you looking at me?
watching
looking closely
pay attention
i'm your favorite movie
when you know the script like
it's your own life
you can mouth the words
and when you say you love me
do you mean it?
'cause you sound so unsure lately
lately
all the ratings
they've been falling
'cause the acting's getting lazy
unrealistic
'cause the actor is distracted

tell me
do you want me?
do you think i'm worth your time?
oh please just tell me
maybe someday isn't as far away as it seems
or maybe it lives in my dreams

tell me
do you want me?
do you think i'm worth your time?
oh please just tell me
maybe someday isn't as far away as it seems
or maybe it lives in my dreams

tell me
do you love me?
if you mean it
live your life
and if that means that you're not a soulmate
you're a best friend
i guess that's alright with me
but god
my heart hurts as it beats
oh

and when you see me on the big screen
on the TV
are you looking at me?
watching
looking closely
pay attention
i'm your favorite movie
when you know the script like
it's your own life
you can mouth the words
and when you say you love me
do you mean it?
'cause you sound so unsure lately
lately
all the ratings
they've been falling
'cause the acting's getting lazy
unrealistic
'cause the actor is addicted
