In The Cinema Alone (Live At Kcrw) - Lyrics

I guess that we've been friends for a while now baby
Yeah, I would even ask you to my wedding day
We'll drink away the pain of the one you lost this time
But there's a few things that I have to say
I'm tired of seeing you buried in the twilight
Cradling your heart, watching people play
Am I ever gonna catch you in the early morning?
Are you ever gonna shine for us all someday?
Or will you spend your life in the cinema?
How do you sleep in the cinema alone?

Do you keep in touch with the one that killed you?
The one that made you start to dream your life away?
Get on the telephone and tell her you're alone
And if she doesn't take you back
It's gonna stay that way

There's nothing left to see in the final reel
I haven't seen the movie but I know the play
The lovers reunite, but it's not your face up there
The sky is bright, but it's not the way
That's just the cinema
Your love will die in the cinema

So dream all you like
Dream all you like, you're gonna end up alone
Dream all you like, dream all you like
You're gonna end up all alone
Dream all you like, dream all you like
Cuz when it's lights up
You're alone
