Cowboys don't cry, and heroes don't die
Good always wins, again and again 
And love is a sweet dream that always comes true
Oh, if life were like the movies, I'd never be blue

But here in the real world 
It's not that easy at all
'Cause when hearts get broken 
It's real tears that fall
And darlin' it's sad but true
But the one thing I've learned from you
Is how the boy don't always get the girl
Here in the real world 

I gave you my love, but that wasn't enough 
To hold your heart, when times got rough 
And tonight on that silver screen
It'll end like it should 
Two lovers will make it through 
Like I hoped we would 

But here in the real world 
It's not that easy at all
'Cause when hearts get broken 
It's real tears that fall
And darlin' it's sad but true
But the one thing I've learned from you
Is how the boy don't always get the girl
Here in the real world 

No, the boy don't always get the girl
Here in the real world
