lyrics

A fragile tower once rose by my bed
A handy place to stack the books I read
But now the seven basic plot designs
Betray the endings of their storylines
At the first sign

There's no thrill left in the ride
Could we be happy?
Could we be happy?
Heard/seen/done it all a thousand times
Could we be happy
Could we be happy just going
Through the motions

Once every pop song took me by surprise
A rush of goose bumps led to teary eyes
But now it's easy to predict the rhymes
And sing along with every other line
On the first try

We used to see a couple films a week
When life was simple and the seats were cheap
We could have walked out but we never did
We should have talked it out instead of hid
Stupid kids

Don't even ask about falling in love
You already know what I'll say
You're perfect on paper
But spoiler alert
We all turn the page.
