Movie Quotes: The Beach

photo from

BEACHED (from the movie The Beach)
performed by: Orbital

Trust me, it’s paradise
This is where the hungry comes to feed
For mine is a generation that circles the globe in search of something we haven’t tried before
So never refuse an invitation
Never resist the unfamiliar
Never fail to be polite,
and never outstay your welcome

Just keep your mind open, and
suck in the experience,
And if it hurts
You know what?
If it hurts,
It’s probably worth it

You hope, and you dream,
but you never believe that something is gonna happen to you
Not like it does in the movies
And when it actually does
You expect it to feel different
More visceral
More real
I was waiting for it to hit me
Hit me

I still believe in paradise
But now at least I know it’s not some place you can look for
Cause it’s not where you go
It’s how you feel for a moment in your life
And if you find that moment
It will last forever
