Acting In Love

lyrics

I’m your boyfriend, you’re my girlfriend
For just three minutes.
This audition for Volkswagon—
Should I begin it?

Take my hand,
I’ll smile and pull you close,
You’re laughing with a lovely twinkle in your eye.
Try to keep it subtle as we huddle
And pretend the city streets are rushing by.

Are you just acting in love?
Then how come this seems real?
Am I just acting in love
If love is what I feel?
What if the casting director can tell
That this is more than method?
Are you playing a part?
Are you just acting in love?

I’m an actor, you’re an actress
In this big city.
You go your way to the subway,
Your hair so pretty.

Take my hand,
I smile and pull you close,
You’re laughing with a lovely twinkle in your eye.
Try to keep it subtle as we muddle
And forget the city streets are rushing by.

Will you give your confession
About the audition,
Or will I never know...

Were you just acting in love?
Then how come you kissed me?
Was I just acting in love?
It came so naturally.
What if the casting director could tell
That that was more than method?
Were you playing my heart?
Were you just acting in love?

Even if we don’t get cast,
Let’s put on our own production.
If you wanna make this last,
Just say, “Lights, camera, action!”

Take my ring,
I’ll smile and pull you close,
You’re crying with a lovely twinkle in your eye.
We won’t keep it subtle as we cuddle
And pretend our busy lives won’t pass us by.

Will we be acting in love
Some 30 years from now?
Will we be acting in love
If love dries up somehow?
What if our beautiful children can tell
We’re going through the motions
And we’re playing apart—
And we’re just acting in love?

What if the casting director could tell
That that was more than method?
‘Cause I gave you my heart;
I wasn’t acting in love.
