And now…The Movie – 11/1/01

If life were like a movie
then good dreams would last a little longer
and the bad ones weren’t written in
The cars that drive off into waves
would always wash back to shore
Trouble, problems, emotions,
these things could turn song into dance
at the home of the band…and…
well, there’d be places to crash
on weekdays when the walls keep you up all night
NOW is where the scene is set, dig?
Everything NOW, right here, not when we’re thirty
And if life were like a movie,
would you have to rehearse your part?
and if you do, then smoke your cigarette NOW
because when you can’t explain the plot
make way for another who can goddammit!
If life were like a movie,
wounds would heal with the next take
and tears on friends’ shoulders could end divorce
Endless walks on endless streets
with all hours of the night keeping the pace
and no time to go home as if it even matters
And if life were like a movie…
I’d be flying instead of writing
