Placebo - The Movie On Your Eyelids Lyrics




I always watch you when you're dreaming
Because I know it's not of me
I smoke a dozen cancer sticks
Imagine there are two or three ways
To make you love me
And not dream of someone else
Become the movie on your eyelids

The reflection of yourself
The reflection of yourself

I cry when I listen to you breathing
Because I know there's nothing else
The conscious of that crushing feeling
To know there's no connection left
That we both go through the motions
That we're both living somewhere else
That the movie on your eyelids
Is no reflection of myself
Is no reflection of myself
Is no reflection of myself

I wanna be, I wanna be your movie...
I wanna be, I wanna be your movie...

Why can't you be me?
Why can't you be me?
Why can't you be me?
Why can't you be me?
Be me, be me, be me...

  1. Mrs Snowsuit

    There‘s no connection left...almost 3 years ago my first boyfriend ended our 8 year old relationship. And it still hurts me. He has got a new beautiful girlfriend and a dog. He really seems to be happy with her. But i still wish to be with him.

    This song is so sad! It makes start me crying and bleeding everything. I can't stop thinking of him, knowing I won't lose anybody because I don't possess them, I'm nevertheless afraid of crushing down, to a place which I don't know yet.

  21. Alicja Mikrut

    Love the song & the photo (by?)

  22. Keith Singletary

    does love naturally drift towards us, or must we embark on the journey of finding it ourselves?

  23. Gustavo Aparicio

    me hago la película con este tema hermoso

  24. love_people hello133

    it's not even a song actually, not in a sense that placebo songs usually are
    just music and poetry each separately though completing one another
    and each heartbreakingly beautiful

  25. Anna

    Such a quiet song and so beautiful, especially the end......

  26. Blue Senpai

    ǝɔıu

  27. Danielle bardot

  28. hazy hills

  29. Paul Jones

    This was a poor choice after just getting dumped after a 5 year relationship... while still being in love with her...

    duke ettingbrah

  30. Hanneli Seirrah

    Why can't you be me?

    Tyrant Gamer

  32. Annie

    I always watch you when you're dreaming
    Because I know it's not of me
    I smoke a dozen cancer sticks
    Imagine there are two or three ways
    To make you love me
    And not dream of someone else
    Become the movie on your eyelids

    The reflection of yourself
    The reflection of yourself

    I cry when I listen to you breathing
    Because I know there's nothing else
    The conscious of that crushing feeling
    To know there's no connection left
    That we both go through the motions
    That we're both living somewhere else
    That the movie on your eyelids
    Is no reflection of myself
    Is no reflection of myself
    Is no reflection of myself

    I wanna be, I wanna be your movie...
    I wanna be, I wanna be your movie...

    Why can't you be me?
    Why can't you be me?

  41. Chillinlily11

    Pure nostalgia.

  42. Dokka Chapman

    where did this track appear in their discography?

    Fabrizio Bartolini

    @Dokka Chapman Unworthy? Why?

    Dokka Chapman

    It must be a recent track as I don't have it. I kinda lost faith in them after Battle for the Sun..... must have been the kicking out of Steve.

    Dan

    @Dokka Chapman Unworthy?? I actually really enjoy BFTS, Devil in the Details is one of their best ever songs.

    Eric Teagardner

    song appears on the battle for the sun box set

    Dokka Chapman

    no wonder I didn't know it. Battle for the sun was the only album by them I actually sold on, it was terrible.

  43. Catherine Sach

    aaah It kills me <3

  44. Alban Pici

    In a loop with this song.

  45. iulix

  46. Jana Janse

    This is the most moving Placebo's song...breathtaking, the lyrics, the music....pure perfection...

  47. Katherine Brookes

    I love this. Brian's voice uses more breathy sensuality than Marilyn Monroe. It is magical.

  48. Στέλιος

    You will never watch me cry. I hate you so much! <3

  49. Sneasel

    This is now my life's theme.

  50. Alejandra Maldonado

    cuando mueres por estar con esa persona! pero sabes que no seras ni eres correspondido... me llena de tristeza y esperanza a la vez...I WANNA BE YOUR MOVIE!

  51. H Ramone

    this is just perfection, the reflection of brians soul, how he manages to transform such sadness in perfection, PERFECTION.

  52. LadyAsia

    this song - it feels like the air, but on the other hand it clogs the lungs with how true the lyrics are.

  53. MakeItTotter

    Cold and haunting...

  54. Thais Fernandes

    i wanna be, i wanna be your movie

  55. Thais Fernandes

    i cry when i listen to you breathing, because i know there's nothing else that conjurs up that crushing feeling

  56. hamilton721

    He needs to start a drum band with Ziggy Starrdust, with Brian Ferry on clarinet, and a blow-up doll on the triangle. Just sayin'.

  57. Andrea Garbati
