Fiction of a Real Life


©2017 J Oscar Bittinger

VERSE 1
Everybody knows something you don’t know
Everybody’s been places you’d like to go
Dream up drama ‘bout people in the
Cafe line
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 rumor and headlines
True stories lie
Which is the Fiction of a Real Life

INSTRUMENTAL (verse chords)

BRIDGE:
Your favorite seasons are spring and fall
Open up the windows
Stare at 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 don’t know
Everybody’s been places you’d like to go
