We wrote Heartache On The Big Screen in the middle of nowhere in Watford, UK with Mike Duce and Dan Lancaster. The song is basically about a bad relationship, but talking about it through the metaphor of a bad movie. It’s probably my favourite on the EP.

Luke talking about Heartache On The Big Screen



Heartache On The Big Screen is a song from 5 Seconds of Summer's third EP, "She Looks So Perfect".

LyricsEdit

Luke:
Started out like in the movies
But it ended like a bad dream
Curtain opened, heard the crowd roar
This one's a repeat seen it before

Calum:
Rewind to the start before it all went wrong
What's going on?

Luke:
Fast forward to the end after everyone's gone home
And they've forgotten it all

All:
This ain't a movie that I wanna see
A tragic story, starring you and me
Yell cut, we're stuck inside this scene
This is heartache on the big screen
The clock is ticking, and I'm out of time
The camera's rolling, and I forgot my lines
My script is ripped and now I see

Luke:
This is heartache on the big screen
This is heartache on the big screen

Calum:
Curtain closes, oh that's cliché
Like a story of a bad day
Back to square one, where I started
As I stand here brokenhearted

Fast forward to the end after everyone's gone home
And they've forgotten it all

All:
This ain't a movie that I wanna see
A tragic story, starring you and me
Yell cut, we're stuck inside this scene
This is heartache on the big screen
The clock is ticking, and I'm out of time
The camera's rolling, and I forgot my lines
My script is ripped and now I see

Luke:
This is heartache on the big screen

Michael:
If Hollywood could see me now
I'd get the starring role
But they won't so I'll just keep on acting a fool

Luke:
This ain't a movie that I wanna see
A tragic story, starring you and me
No cut we're stuck inside this scene, yeah!

All:
The clock is ticking, and I'm out of time
The camera's rolling, and I forgot my lines
My script is ripped and now I see

Luke:
This is heartache on the big screen
This is heartache on the big screen
This is heartache on the big screen
