Conan Gray - Movies

[Intro]
Movies, movies
I want a love like the movies

[Verse 1]
I look at you like you're perfect for me
If you are the diamond, then I am the ring
All of our friends think of us jealously
We’re so sweet, so sweet
Built us a world and I gave you the key
Still can't believe that this isn't a dream
Falling in love with a damn fantasy
That’s so me, so me
[Pre-Chorus]
But I've been livin'
Life in fiction

[Chorus]
In my head, we're dancing in the dark
In my head, we kiss under the stars
But we know that's not what we're doing
'Causе, baby, this ain't like the movies

[Post-Chorus]
Moviеs, movies
I want a love like the movies

[Verse 2]
We go to parties with people you know
We’re holding hands, but it’s all just for show
'Cause Monday through Friday, we both barely spoke
They don’t know, they can't know
That just on the drive here, I was looking through your texts
I was screaming my damn head off, "how you still love your ex?"
And you say that it's over, but why does she call you
At 3AM and 4AM?
That's a funny way of staying friends

[Chorus]
In my head, we’re dancing in the dark
In my head, we kiss under the stars
But we know that's not what we're doing
'Cause, baby, this ain't like the movies
In my head, we never grow apart
In my head, you never break my heart
But we know that's not what we're doing
'Cause, baby, this ain't like the movies

Movies, movies
I want a love like the movies
Movies, movies
I want a love like the movies

[Bridge]
Baby, we lost all the love that we had (Movies, movies)
And I can't pretend it'll ever come back (I want a love like the movies)
And I think you're seeing right through me (Movies, movies)
That, baby, this ain't like the movies

[Outro]
And I want a love like the movies

“Movies” is the opening track of Conan Gray’s second studio album "Superache". Here, Conan describes an idealistic love he craves, one seen in movies, and how the relationship between him and his lover fails to meet those expectations. It sets the tone for the rest of Gray’s sophomore studio album by describing a relationship gone sour. "I think the reason why I chose ‘Movies’ as the opener is because it’s a song about being in denial. For a lot of my early teens and a lot of my life, I spent so long, trying so hard, to fall in love in a way that was normal. I wanted the Hallmark movie. I wanted that stupid, fake, perfect love because that’s what I grew up seeing. I think, in the past few years, I’ve realized that’s not what I want anymore. I wanted to show people the process of discovering that over this album." — Via Apple Music "To me, I feel like “Movies” is about being super in denial about the state of a relationship, and you’re, like, “Yeah, everything’s great, we’re perfect, everything’s awesome,” and then it’s very obvious that things aren’t actually what you think they are. And I think it’s also about the kind of delusion of being, like, “Oh, I don’t know, I think we’re perfect for each other,” and then you actually look at it and you’re, like, “No, we are not.”" — Conan via iHeartRadio
