Written for some friends who went through a divorce. The music is counterpoint to the content and general topic; the powerful mystery of songs and songwriting.

Lyrics

In The Movies
(Eric Peters, Ben Shive)

I know my name’s just an empty memory
I’m not a breeze across your brow
But here, tonight, we could lay down our fight
So you can go your way

The mirror paints a loathing picture
Of my bloodshot red and guilty eyes
Deep at night when I crawl to my vice
And they get the best of me

I can’t blame anybody
But I can blame you

Happy endings are only in the movies, in the movies
Things always work out perfectly in the movies, in the movies

Honey, here come the ending credits
Could we be the final scene?
Where we meet halfway in a long, slow fade
And love is never trampled

We can’t change anybody
If we won’t change ourselves
We can’t save anybody
But love might save us fools

Happy endings are only in the movies, in the movies
Things always work out perfectly in the movies, in the movies

In the movies (The boy saves the world)
In the movies (He walks out with the girl)
In the movies (Is it too good to be true?)
In the movies
