lyrics

life ain't like a movie, life ain't like a song
sometimes you can't get the things you need
there's no poetic justice, no tidy denouement
just lonesome hearts and aching hands and feet

life ain't like a fable, life ain't like a joke
sometimes the bad guy gets away
no well-deserved comeuppance, no solemn speeches spoke
just the sleepy music of the everyday

oh, truth is stranger than fiction
and more beautiful too
but I can't help this addiction
to spinning lies for you

life ain't like a novel, life ain't like a poem
sometimes we don't learn from our mistakes
no reconciliation, no way to go back home
just tired sinners trying to catch a break

life ain't like a story in a magazine
sometimes there's no moral at the end
no sudden transformation, no god from the machine
but I guess it don't hurt if we pretend
