Lyrics

If my dreams were movies and plans were screenplays
And fantasies were situation comedy
If my thoughts were exposed, I’d stand without clothes
Stand before you in embarrassed nudity
If my mask was unpeeled
The mystery revealed and my secrets disclosed
Such an indiscreet pose

If my dreams were movies you’d see right through me
If my wildest dreams were up on the silver screen

If my dreams were movies, all I could be
Would be gone with the element of privacy
I could not act calm or nonchalant
All of these pretensions would be history
I’d be who I am
Could you love who I am or would that destroy
The image of the boy

If my dreams were movies, you’d see right through me
If my wildest dreams were up on the silver screen

Do you think we could be less deceived by honesty
If the truth could fall like a cannon ball
behind a wall we'd hide it all
If my dreams were front page and caused an outrage
Would you be thinking any less of me?
If I thought and told and it was bought and sold
And you saw it there in my biography
I’d be who I am
Would you love who I am?
Should I cover the dirt so the truth doesn’t hurt

If my dreams were movies, you’d see right through me
If my wildest dreams were up on the silver screen
