Not Like the Movies

Album: Teenage Dream (2010)
Charted: 53
  • He put it on me, I put it on,
    Like there was nothing wrong.
    It didn't fit,
    It wasn't right.
    Wasn't just the size.
    They say you know,
    When you know.
    I don't know.

    I didn't feel
    The fairytale feeling, no.
    Am I a stupid girl
    For even dreaming that I could.

    If it's not like the movies,
    That's how it will be, yeah.
    Oh but that's how it should be
    When he's the one,
    I'll come undone,
    And my world will stop spinning
    And that's just the beginning, yeah.

    Snow white said when I was young,
    "One day my prince will come."
    So I wait for that date.
    They say its hard to meet your match,
    Find my better half.
    So we make perfect shapes.
    If stars don't align,
    If it doesn't stop time,
    If you cant see the sign,
    Wait for it.
    One hundred percent,
    With every penny spent.
    He'll be the one that,
    Finishes your sentences.

    If it's not like the movies,
    That's how it will be
    Oh but that's how it should be.
    When he's the one,
    He'll come undone,
    And my world will stop spinning,
    And that's just the beginning.

    Oh yeah,
    Cause I know you're out there,
    And your, your love came for me.
    It's a crazy idea that you were made,
    Perfectly for me you'll see.

    Just like the movies.
    That's how it will be
    Oh but that's how it should be.
    Cinematic and dramatic with the perfect ending.
    It's not like the movies,
    Oh but that's how it will be.
    When he's the one,
    You'll come undone,
    And your world will stop spinning,
    And it's just the beginning. Writer/s: KATY PERRY, GREG WELLS
