       GG chord             DD chord             GG chord
So you want to be in love like the movies 
       GG chord                  DD chord              GG chord
But in the movies they're not in love at all 
           EmEm chord               DD chord
And with a twinkle in their eyes 
BmBm chord                        CC chord
They're just saying their lines 
       GG chord          DD chord             GG chord
So we can't be in love like the movies 


           BmBm chord          CC chord               GG chord 
Now in the movies they make it look so perfect 
           BmBm chord                 CC chord                        GG chord
And in the background they're always playing the right song 
           BmBm chord             CC chord             GG chord
And in the ending there's always a resolution 
   BmBm chord            CC chord              GG chord   DD chord     CC chord
But real life is more than just two hours long 


       GG chord             DD chord             GG chord
So you want to be in love like the movies 
       GG chord                  DD chord              GG chord
But in the movies they're not in love at all 
           EmEm chord               DD chord
And with a twinkle in their eyes 
BmBm chord                        CC chord
They're just saying their lines 
       GG chord          DD chord             GG chord
So we can't be in love like the movies


             BmBm chord               CC chord             GG chord 
Well you can freeze frame any moment from a movie 
           BmBm chord               CC chord                      GG chord 
Or run the whole damn thing backwards from reel to reel 
       BmBm chord                  CC chord                   GG chord 
But I don't see one single solitary light technician 
    BmBm chord        CC chord              GG chord   DD chord   CC chord 
Or one single camera in this moonlit field 


        GG chord             DD chord             GG chord
I don't want to be in love like the movies 
         GG chord                  DD chord              GG chord
Cause in the movies they're not in love at all 
       EmEm chord               DD chord
With a twinkle in their eyes 
BmBm chord                        CC chord
They're just saying their lines 
       GG chord          DD chord             GG chord
So we can't be in love like the movies

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
