Making Movies

(John Foxx / Louis Gordon)

This story's told in flashback
Otherwise it makes no sense
I'm searching through these films as
Some form of self-defence

You're always making movies
It's really what you do
You're always making movies
Arranging subtle clues

You rearrange the lighting
You're editing events
You make a silent gesture
You're quietly intense

You're living in a movie
That's really what you do
The music's strange and almost
As beautiful as you

You're always making movies
Some kind of perfect life
Those scenes of glowing summer
Glimpses of perfect times

Some lifetime's lived in flashback
Wandering from set to set
A sudden giant close-up
A hint of strange regret

You're always making movies
That's really what you do
You're never quite in focus
Some sequence is confused

This story's told in flashback
Otherwise it makes no sense
I'm searching through these films as
Some form of self-defence

I'm always watching movies
The movie's all of you
I understand that movies
Are really what you do
