End Credits

End Credits

Manny goes to the movies 
Sits by himself in the dark

His friends get loaded 
In the park

Manny watches the credits 
And waits until they ask him to leave

The people on the screen disappeared 
Like his lovers in a dream

Manny wanders outside the theater 
And feels the heavy summer air

He never tells his father he left 
His father doesn’t care

Manny has to return 
To what he left behind

What he abandoned for the theater 
The place where there’s peace in his mind

Why end the movie 
Why end the movie 
Why end the movie 
Why end the movie
