The Silver Screen

The Silver Screen

If I close my eyes
My memory wonders back to LA
And the way she shook her head
Turned around and walked away
It took me a long time
To see things this clearly
She finally got that starring role she wanted
In every one of my memories

Chorus:
It was such a simple part
I can’t believe I got it wrong
I forgot the only lines that mattered
And now the role I want is gone
She always said she would be a star
I made her leave her dreams behind
Now she’s the biggest star by far
On the silver screen in my mind

I can close my eyes
But there’s no way for me to erase
All the tears she cried that night
I watched them run down her face
It took a bad actor
To make things end this way
There’s no way you can have a happy ending
When the leading actress gets away

Chorus:
It was such a simple part
I can’t believe I got it wrong
I forgot the only lines that mattered
And now the role I want is gone
She always said she would be a star
I made her leave her dreams behind
Now she’s the biggest star by far
On the silver screen in my mind
