Clark Gable

by The Postal Service

I was waiting for a cross-town train in the London Underground, when it struck me, that I've been waiting since birth to find a love that would look and sound like a movie. So I changed my plans, I rented a camera and a van and then I called you...
"I need you to pretend that we are in love again." and you agreed to....

I want so badly to believe that "there is truth, that love is real" and I want life in every word to the extent that it's absurd.

I greased the lens and framed the shot using a friend as my stand-in. The script it called for rain but it was clear that day so we faked it. The marker snapped and I yelled "quiet on the set" and then called "action!"

I kissed you in a style clark gable would have admired (i thought it classic)....

I want so badly to believe that "there is truth, that love is real" and I want life in every word to the extent that it's absurd.

i know you're wise beyond your years, but do you ever get the feel, that your perfect verse is just a lie, you tell yourself to help you get by....?
