lyrics

Everything you say sounds like a lie
Everything you say and I know why
'Cause you say it with your mouth and not your eyes
And I can't 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 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 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 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 all the ratings, they've been falling
'Cause the acting's getting
Lazy, unrealistic, 'cause the actor is addicted
