"Another song which is called "(If
You Were) In My Movie" which is a very straightforward
song and it's a sort of flirting song with someone. If you were
in my movie: these are the parts you would play and the parts
are: a detective, a gangster, a priest and a doctor. It's easy
to see what the songs are about. They are about real things."
From the fanzine "Language", 1991 (http://www.vega.net/svihow.htm) trancription by Eric Szczerbinski
"The song is about flirting. It's a flirting kind of song.
It's a song looking at another person and saying these are qualities
that you could be, that you could have within you. These are
the things that I see.
It's putting a glamorous light on someone's character. Saying
these are the things that, when I look at you, these are the
things I see. It's like taking someone's basic nature and making
it more than it actually is."
