The Movie in My Mind

from Sound Stage by Jacqueline Novikov



From Miss Saigon
Music by Claude-Michel Schonberg & Alain Boubil
Lyrics Richard Maltby Jr.


They are not nice, they're mostly noise
They swear like men, they screw like boys
I know there's nothing in their hearts
But every time I take one in my arms it starts

The movie in my mind, the dream they leave behind
A scene I can't erase, and in a strong G.I's embrace
Flee this life, flee this place

The movie plays and plays, the screen before me fills
He takes me to New York, he gives me dollar bills
Our children laugh all day, and eat too much ice cream
And life is like a dream

Dream, the dream I long to find, the movie in my mind

I will not cry, I will not think
I'll do my dance, I'll make them drink
When I make love, it won't be me
And if they hurt me, I'll just close my eyes and see

The movie in my mind, the dream that fills my head
A man who will not kill, who'll fight for me instead
He'll keep us safe all day, So no one comes at night
To blow the dream away

Dream, the dream I have to find, the movie in my mind

And in a strong G.I's embrace, flee this life, flee this place
A world that's far away, where life is not unkind
The movie in my mind.
