The Man in the Movies

I posted the first draft of this in December 2008. I worked on it off and on. I changed one line today and I think I'm finally done.

The Man in the Movies
by Rob Roper 5th draft March 27, 2011

She had no time for sadness
Didn't believe in second chances
She was looking for the man in the movies
She wanted flowers without the rain

I played the part for awhile
wearing a crooked smile
I was the man in the movies
I promised flowers without the rain

Guess I scared her a little
when I let her see my cry
I'm not the man in the movies
But I'll take the flowers with the rain
