Katy Perry - Not Like the Movies

He put it on me, I put it on
Like there was nothing wrong
It didn’t fit, it wasn’t right
Wasn’t just the size

They say you know when you know
I don’t know
I didn’t feel the fairy-tale feeling, no
Am I a stupid girl
For even dreaming that I could

If it’s not like the movies
That’s how it should be, yeah
When he’s the one, I’ll come undone
And my world will stop spinning
And it’s just the beginning, yeah

Snow White said when I was young,
“One day my prince will come”
So I wait for that day
They say it’s hard to meet your match
Find my better half
So we make perfect shapes

The stars don’t align
If it doesn’t stop time
If you can’t see the sign
Wait for it
One hundred percent
Worth every penny spent
He’ll be the one that finishes your sentences

If it’s not like the movies
That’s how it should be, yeah
When he’s the one, I’ll come undone
And my world will stop spinning
And it’s just the beginning

‘Cause I know you’re out there
And you’re, you’re looking for me, oh
It’s a crazy idea, babe
You were made perfectly for me, you see

Just like the movies
That’s how it will be
Cinematic and dramatic
With a perfect ending

It’s not like the movies
But that’s how it should be, yeah
When he’s the one, you’ll come undone
And your world will stop spinning
And it’s just the beginning

This dreamy ode to love was co-written by Perry and Greg Wells and produced by Wells. Perry told BBC's Newsbeat that the contemplative ballad was finished just as her relationship with comedian and actor Russell Brand blossomed at the end of 2009. "I finished it with him in mind knowing that it is like the movies. He's in films and stuff so it made sense. Sometimes you're in a situation where it feels like this is the best you can get. I really do believe in true love and you should really find it."
