Fiction of a Real Life

©2017 J Oscar Bittinger

VERSE 1
Everybody knows something you’d like to know
Everybody’s been some place you’d like to go
Dream up dramas ‘bout people that are
Passing by
Create a Fiction from a Real Life

VERSE 2
You imagine passion where you wear knee-high stockings
But you worry that somebody might be watching
Between rumors and headlines
Where the true story lies
Like a Fiction of a Real Life

INSTRUMENTAL (verse chords)

BRIDGE:
Your favorite seasons are spring and fall
Sleep in a T-shirt but never
Nothing at all
Brush out your curls in a room of black and white tile
You’re only staying there awhile

VERSE 3
They’re making movies on the next street down
You watch the watchful cop cars cruising around
Who plays part of the lover of the unloved wife
In this Fiction of a Real Life
You could script it if they like
A Fiction of a Real Life

Everybody knows something you’d like to know
Everybody’s been some place you’d like to go
