From the paper umbrellas in both of our drinks To the shadows that walk without us My account of the details is as clear as you'd think Kept up by friends that still ask about us
If our lives were a movie, if our lives were a book It'd be longer than I'd recommend 'Cause if you're telling a story, at some point you stop But stories don't end
The remains of a person, the habits of a ghost You could still find in the places you used to Still reading off cue cards and raising a toast To the stories I still tell about you
But the plot line wanders and versions change And I don't know where to quit
If I tried to show every side of you through words of a song I'd say a fraction of what I'd intend 'Cause if you're telling a story, at some point you stop But stories don't end
The next time I see you and my conscience tells me That the episode has long since been closed But he's not the one that gets up every morning And wonders how long a memory keeps its pose And how much that the man beside you knows And how much of the toll it's taken shows
Like a famous singer that lost his voice That we all still want to meet
If our lives were a movie, if our lives were a book It'd be longer than I could defend 'Cause if you're telling a story, at some point you stop But stories don't end Stories don't end
They go on and on Just someone stops listening
