Art Films Never Last


Well I saw you in a movie
Misreading your lines
Your skin was so radiant
That I was blinded

I dreamed you worked a sex shop
In Barcelona, Spain
Where all the ladies loved you
And all the men, they came

Oooh, look around, this film is on
Oh-ooh, stand in the window, ice cream on your tongue
Your tongue
Is it having fun?

The airplane churns onward
Through skies of azure steam
The roar of mass cathedrals
Things are not as they seem

And I saw you in that art film
Severely miscast
What the hell, it's just an art film
They say art films never last
You know art films never last
             ...just like you and me

Oooh, look around, this film is on
Oh-oooh, stand in the window, ice cream on your tongue
Are you having fun?
