Real life is never like the movies

As Kalena would say, "For fuck's sake!", it isn't even like soap operas. The most romantic experience I ever had was when Jeff and I went out to a restaurant and got drunk off of wine while I told him Bible stories. He also is the only one to buy me flowers and chocolate for Valentine's day. Yes, a part of us wishes that it could all work out and live happily ever after, but either I'm disillusioned or can face reality. I think I've come to the point where I can love you for all the things you are and have done for me without being in love with you. Actually, for some reason, I'm feeling pretty good right now... Even if my life is so bad that my friends tell me they're glad they're not me. There are people I love, and there are people who love me. Even if they aren't my family. I guess just being aware that I'm capable of giving and receiving such a miraculous bond helps. Life isn't like the movies, but that's okay.


Written by: Neil Finn

There is freedom within, there is freedom without
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
There's a battle ahead, many battles are lost
But you'll never see the end of the road
While you're travelling with me

Chorus
Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won't win

Now I'm towing my car, there's a hole in the roof
My possessions are causing me suspicion but there's no proof
In the paper today tales of war and of waste
But you turn right over to the T.V. page

Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won't win

Now I'm walking again to the beat of a drum
And I'm counting the steps to the door of your heart
Only the shadows ahead barely clearing the roof
Get to know the feeling of liberation and relief

Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
Don't ever let them win
