It's Okay To Steal Things That Are Pretty

I can't write poetry to save myself so I steal things I like and post them here. This is from a movie. Guess which one.

It's called Milkshakes.

Daydream delusion 
Limousine Eyelash 
Oh, baby with your pretty face 
Drop a tear in my wineglass 
Look at those big eyes 
See what you mean to me 
Sweet cakes and milkshakes
 I am a delusion angel 
I am a fantasy parade 
I want you to know what I think 
Don’t want you to guess anymore 
You have no idea where I came from 
We have no idea where we’re going 
Launched in life
Like branches in the river
Flowing downstream
Caught in the current
I’ll carry you. You’ll carry me
That’s how it could be
Don’t you know me? 
Don’t you know me by now?

So boy and girl meet on a train and after roaming the streets of magical European city, learn that they are perfect for each other and together they have the most memorable night of their lives. About as typical as it gets. But sometimes typical is good. And actually a lot of us just want typical, though we can be a bit secretive about it. Typical makes sense and typical feels right. And typical, simple things are often what people remember for the rest of their lives.

Before sunrise.
Before sunset is not as good. But must to watch it is.
