The love you have for me
feels just like Hollywood 
Sometimes there's chemistry on set
but the script is rarely good

With a painted smile
you try to keep it cool
as long as I am the one
typecast to play the fool

Cause you promise me
way more than you should
when the boundaries
are clearly understood
just like Hollywood

You say you want to be with me
but you’re hardly ever here
Like a rising movie star
out of sight is what your fear

Is that why you call my phone
in the middle of the night
from another far off place
to make sure I am alright?

Still, you promise me
way more than you should
when the boundaries
are clearly understood
Well, of course it all makes sense
just like a Hollywood

Will I be the passé flavor of last week?
Spit out for some poor stranger
who now looks so sweet
Out of fashion at another award show
where the famous receive honors they bestow

With so many roles to play
compromise is tough
Should the world fall at your feet
would it ever be enough?

Cause you promise me
way more than you should
when the boundaries
are clearly understood
just like Hollywood
