VERSE 1
C C Am Am Em Em
I was waiting for a cross-town train in the London underground when it struck me

C C Am Am Em Em
That I've been waiting since birth to find a love that would look and sound like a movie

C C Am Am Em Em
So I changed my plans I rented a camera and a van and then I called you

C C Am Am Em Em
"I need you to pretend that we are in love again" and you agreed to

CHORUS
C C Am Am Em Em
I want so badly to believe that "there is truth, that love is real"

C C Am Am Em Em
And I want life in every word to the extent that it's absurd

INSTRUMENTAL
C C Am Am Em Em

VERSE 2
C C Am Am Em Em
I greased the lens and framed the shot using a friend as my stand-in

C C Am Am Em Em
The script it called for rain but it was clear that day so we faked it

C C Am Am Em Em
The marker snapped and I yelled "quiet on the set" and then called "action!"

C C Am Am Em Em
And I kissed you in a style that Clark Gable would have admired (I thought it classic)

CHORUS
C C Am Am Em Em
I want so badly to believe that "there is truth, that love is real"

C C Am Am Em Em
And I want life in every word to the extent that it's absurd

C C Am Am Em Em
I know you're wise beyond your years, but do you ever get the fear

C C Am Am Em Em
That your perfect verse is just a lie you tell yourself to help you get by?

(I like to speed up my playing here to fit the faster drums)

C C Am Am Em Em
That you tell yourself to get by?

C C Am Am Em Em
That you tell yourself to get by?
