“Here in the Real World” Lyrics 

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
