LIKE IN THE MOVIE​S

I have a quiet home, a decent home, 
My life's like in the films
A marriage, kids, but still it seems
Without you hollow dreams.   
Like in the movies, like in the movies.

My marriage dull, my kids dull too,
When you cannot be found 
And though I need to have them near 
A void swirls all around. 
And you, darling, know it well
and so you run away right now.
Because, dear God, if I could just
Turn back the clock, turn you around...
Like in the movies, like in the movies
.

When magic flees, time passes by,
easing the pain, so soothing.
Then you will have a home,
oh yes, life like a movie.
And you will not cry any more,
forget about me, dear
and never know that when we met
I lost my mind, I fear. 
Like in the movies, like in the movies.
