Don't ruin the movie (provisional title). (Original)

Type: Sung online
Writers: Grace Vanderwaal
Times Performed: 1


The song has not been released but Grace has played a part of a Garageband production of it, live on Instagram.

Don’t ruin the movie: “I know a song you are all going to love. Now, I don’t know if I am going to get in trouble for it, but I don’t think that I would, since I am not releasing it or anything, right? This one I did not do, it’s like professional… whatever … the only thing, this is really rough, and they put a lot of autotune on my voice, just for the verses. It was one of the first times I was working with this specific producer and he didn’t like, get me yet, so this isn’t the newest version, it’s going to sound really bad for the verses.”

“I picture such a good music video for that song. What that song was about … I don’t know about you guys, but, I can get into such intricate, like “fantasy scenarios” of the future, like is a friggin movie in my mind, like, I see the camera angles, the shots, what I am wearing, the scenery, the weather. I picture all. Once I picture those scenarios, it gets more and more easy to not remember, that in reality that wouldn’t happen. But on top of being someone constantly fantasizing, I feel that I am also a very realist person, constantly putting down dreams and fantasies with reality, including myself. So, it’s kind of like me singing to myself like, “can you shut up! – Don’t ruin the beautiful movie, don’t mess with this part, ‘cause the feeling’s escaping” once that momentum is lost, if like, my mind starts going like: “that would never happen, in reality this would happen, this would happen, this would happen. Once my mind starts fall into that, like waking me up basically, it’s so hard to fall back into the momentum of like “seeing” the scene.
