THE MARINA DINER

lyrics

I thought that I could be your Pauly Bleaker and you'd be my Juno McGuff
and even though I try really hard it turns out I was never enough
and I thought that you you'd be my Audrey Hepburn
and I'd be your Fred Astaire,
and i thought that I stole your heart like Drew Baylor
and you'd be my flight attendant Claire.

ya but we, we don't live in these movies
and as much as I wish I could see the whole film
now I see you were only a frame
and we we don't live in these movies
and as much as I wish we could see the whole film
I guess that I'm still glad that I came and saw what I did.

I always knew that you were my Robyn and I guess I was your Ted
I made you out to be all that I wanted, I got in over my head
we were just like Coach Bombay and Charlie's mom,
we were doomed when that Bus pulled away
and I wish we could be just like Zach and Miri
but I don't see it ending that way

ya but we, we don't live in these movies
and as much as I wish I could see the whole film
now I see you were only a frame
and we we don't live in these movies
and as much as I wish we could see the whole film
I guess that I'm still glad that I came and saw what I did.

So now I sit just like Holden McNeil with a somber look and pen in hand
while he's writing comics I'm writing songs trying to make sense of just what went wrong
and you will always be my Chasing Amy
