More Like The Movies

I guess the dance is over now
So you just curtsey and I'll bow
Snd ask the band to play us
"Auld Lang Syne".
Then I'll just take what's left of me
Right back to where it used to be
And you go sail your magic carpet
Far across the sky.

(Chorus)
I wish I could have made it
More like the movies for you.
Some pretty technicolor way
It's never been.
I'm sorry when I kissed you
You only heard me whisper
You never got to hear those Violins.   (Did you, girl?)
No, you never got to hear those violins.

The castles that you built so high
Were just to steep for me to climb
And I guess these dirty streeysts of mine
Were just too rough for you.
I wish I could have made you see
Just one of your sweet childhood dreams
But though I tried I could not make
Just one of them come true .

(Chorus)
I wish I could have made it
More like the movies for you.
Some pretty technicolor way
It's never been.
I'm sorry when I kissed you
You only heard me whisper
You never got to hear those Violins.   (Did you, girl?)
No, you never got to hear those violins.
