lyrics

Like The Movies
By NYIKO

Take my hand
We’re dancing in the street
We don’t need no music
Keeping rhythm with our heartbeats

You run into the ocean
Now you’re looking back at me
Asking questions like
Isn’t this meant to be?

Underneath the moon
Howling like lovers do
Even the brightest stars burn out
How do you know we won’t too?


You want love like the movies
Wishing on a star
Someone who truly sees
You for who you are 
When house lights turn up
And the credits start to roll
Will you stay until the end
Even if it’s all pretend?
It’s the only love you know


A letter
On a doorstep
In the hometown
That you never left

You open and read it
And start feeling something
You just want to feel
Anything but nothing

You’re hoping and dreaming
That this is the one who
Will make you feel like you were


Underneath the moon
Howling like lovers do
Even the brightest stars burn out
How do you know we won’t too?


You want love like the movies
Wishing on a star
Someone who truly sees
You for who you are 
When house lights turn up
And the credits start to roll
Will you stay until the end
Even if it’s all pretend?
It’s the only love you know


The critics will say what they will
And all of your friends will have their opinions

You open and read it
And start feeling something
You just want to feel
Anything but nothing
You’re hoping and dreaming
That this is the one who
Will make you feel like you were


You want love like the movies
Wishing on a star
Someone who truly sees
You for who you are 
When house lights turn up
And the credits start to roll
Will you stay until the end
Even if it’s all pretend?
It’s the only love you know
