Lyrics

The room goes dark as she lets her heart
Get lost in the silver screen
Her laughter turns to tears
At the kiss in the final scene
The hero’s perfect words
Stole Julia Robert’s heart
But when the credits roll, she’s reminded
He’s just a movie star

Yeah, she knows he’s only acting
Repeating those lines
She’s heard a thousand times
She wants to deny it
But the truth haunts her still
It was a beautiful illusion
But she needs something real

They don’t say much as the lights go up
And he walks her to his car
He’s holding her hand
With only half his heart
And he always says “I love you”
But he never says it first
He’s just going through the motions
And his kisses feel rehearsed

Yeah, she knows he’s only acting
Repeating those lines
She’s heard a thousand times
She wants to deny it
But the truth haunts her still
It was a beautiful illusion
But she needs something real

That Hollywood ending used to seem like enough
But now she’d give anything for one honest touch

She says, I know you’re only acting
Repeating those lines
I’ve heard a thousand times
You don’t wanna hurt me
But you can’t change how you feel
It was a beautiful illusion
But I need something real

You’re only acting…
You don’t wanna hurt me,
But you can’t change how you feel
It was a beautiful illusion
But I need something real
