Charted: 10
  • Just like in the movies
    It starts to rain and we
    We're the broken beauties
    Blindfolded minds collide and we fall

    When the curtain drops
    Our touch is just a touch
    Not like in the movies
    Our story's after the end

    Like strangers
    Perfect pretenders
    We're falling head over heels
    For something that ain't real
    It could never be us, eh
    Just you and I

    Strangers
    Perfect pretenders
    We're falling head over heels
    For something that ain't real
    It could never be us, eh
    Just you and I

    Memories in photos
    Too easy to rewrite
    Left as lonely shadows
    Holding each other tight and we fall

    When the curtain drops
    Our touch is just a touch
    Not like in the movies
    Our story's after the end

    Like strangers
    Perfect pretenders
    We're falling head over heels
    For something that ain't real
    It could never be us, eh
    Just you and I

    Think we got it, but we made up a dream
    'Cause we've got a pretty look of what we could be, whoa
    I don't want you, all you want is someone
    Going home together to forget we're alone
    Think we got it, but we made up a dream
    'Cause we've got a pretty look of what we could be, whoa
    I don't want you, all you want is someone
    Going home together to forget we're alone

    You and I, you and I, you and I, you and I, you and I, you and I
    Not like in the movies
    You and I, you and I, you and I, you and I, you and I, you and I
    Not like in the movies

    Like strangers
    Perfect pretenders
    We're falling head over heels
    For something that ain't real
    It could never be us, eh
    Just you and I

    Strangers
    Perfect pretenders
    We're falling head over heels
    For something that ain't real
    It could never be us, eh
    Just you and I

    Think we got it, but we made up a dream
    'Cause we've got a pretty look of what we could be, whoa
    I don't want you, all you want is someone
    Going home together to forget we're alone
    Think we got it, but we made up a dream
    'Cause we've got a pretty look of what we could be, whoa
    I don't want you, all you want is someone
    Going home together to forget we're alone

    Strangers
    (Think we got it, but we made up a dream 'cause we've got a pretty look of what we could be, whoa)
    Perfect pretenders
    (I don't want you, all you want is someone going home together to forget we're alone)
    We're falling head over heels
    For something that ain't real t we could be, whoa)
    It could never be us, eh (I don't want you, all you want is someone)
    Just you and I Writer/s: Martin Sjolie, Sigrid Solbakk Raabe
