Widescreen

This song is by Rupert Holmes and appears on the album Widescreen (1974).

There are songs that sound like movies
There are themes that fill the screen
There are lines I say that sound as if they're written
There are looks I wear the theater should have seen
But though I've made my life a movie
The matinee must end by five
And I must stagger out into the blinding sunlight half alive
Wishing I were back inside the picture show
There where it's always night
Notice how the screen is wide
The second row I'd sit around you tight
Will I stay? Yes, I might

Widescreen wide around my eyes
Blind my mind with lies
Find a world like nothing that I've seen
Oh widescreen dreams are just my size

As we walk from out the movie
Do I look like Steve McQueen?
Does the orchestra play chords
When we start loving?
Do we move just like slow motion
On the screen?
Life's a constant disappointment
When you live on celluloid
But my movie expectations are a dream I can't avoid
Waiting for a girl to say the things
That I heard in a film last night
But she doesn't want to play the role
And she can't pick her cues up right
Will I dream? Yes, I might

Oh widescreen wide around my eyes
Blind my mind with lies
Find a world like nothing that I've seen
Oh widescreen take the world away
Break me from the day
Make me be what's not for real
And make me feel like a star
Make me what you are
