Miss Saigon - The Movie in My Mind Lyrics

Song from Miss Saigon - 2014 West End Revival
Miss Saigon
the Musical - The Movie in My Mind Lyrics

GIGI
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 GI's embrace
Flee this life
Flee this place
The movie plays and plays
I'll find my true romance
He takes me to a place
Where I don't have to dance
Our children laugh all day
But all that I've been through
Can't make my dream come true
Dream
The dream I long to find
The movie in my mind

KIM
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

KIM & (GIRLS)
And see (they are not nice, they're mostly noise)
The movie in my mind (they kill like men, they die like boys)
The dream that fills my head (they give their cash, they keep their hearts)
A man who will not kill (but every night again it starts)

KIM
Who'll fight for me instead
He'll keep the fear at bay
So no one comes at night
To blow the dream away
Dream
The dream I have to find
The movie in my mind

ALL GIRLS
And in a strong GI's embrace
Flee this life
Flee this place

KIM
A world that's far away
Where life is not unkind
The movie in my mind
