       G             D             G
So you want to be in love like the movies 
       G                  D              G
But in the movies they're not in love at all 
           Em               D
And with a twinkle in their eyes 
Bm                        C
They're just saying their lines 
       G          D             G
So we can't be in love like the movies 


           Bm          C               G 
Now in the movies they make it look so perfect 
           Bm                 C                        G
And in the background they're always playing the right song 
           Bm             C             G
And in the ending there's always a resolution 
   Bm            C              G   D     C
But real life is more than just two hours long 


       G             D             G
So you want to be in love like the movies 
       G                  D              G
But in the movies they're not in love at all 
           Em               D
And with a twinkle in their eyes 
Bm                        C
They're just saying their lines 
       G          D             G
So we can't be in love like the movies


             Bm               C             G 
Well you can freeze frame any moment from a movie 
           Bm               C                      G 
Or run the whole damn thing backwards from reel to reel 
       Bm                  C                   G 
But I don't see one single solitary light technician 
    Bm        C              G   D   C 
Or one single camera in this moonlit field 


        G             D             G
I don't want to be in love like the movies 
         G                  D              G
Cause in the movies they're not in love at all 
       Em               D
With a twinkle in their eyes 
Bm                        C
They're just saying their lines 
       G          D             G
So we can't be in love like the movies

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
