“Movie Star”
Music:  Alejandro Lerner & Mark Portmann
Lyric: Roxanne Seeman

When I think of lovers
Who have graced the silver screen
So in love with one another
And how good it must have been, those golden days
Nothing ever fades away                    Will never…

In the movie theatre
Where there’s darkness all around
I imagine what it’s like to be
The lady in the story with the charm
Lying in the hero’s arms                    In the hero’s arms

I remember the romantic scenes
That’s the sentimental part of me

But now every night
The movie comes to life
There’s color in a world that once in time was only black and white

In real life
The movie never ends
It’s playing again and we are playing who we are
And you’re the movie star for me

I love Casablanca, Humphrey Bogart and Bacall
Spencer Tracy, Katherine Hepburn
And especially the French films of Truffaut
Jules et Jim et Jeanne Moreau

Caught forever in my reverie
In a technicolor fantasy

But now every night
The movie comes to life
There’s color in a world that once in time was only black and white

In real life
The movie never ends
It’s playing again and we are playing who we are
And you’re the movie star for me

Real life
The movie never ends
It’s playing again and we are playing who we are
And you’re the movie star, the movie star for me
