Your Smile

YOUR SMILE

[Verse]
I’ve got a tiny photograph of you taken a few years ago.
It’s fixed in my mind as a monument to your terrific one-woman show.
You’re wearing your favourite clothing and your hair is just freshly curled,
But the one thing that shines alight is the most beautiful smile in the world.

[Verse]
I find it hard when I see you sad, it’s even worse when you cry,
But there’s nothing can take your beauty away from you any time.
I love to see you happy, and if you should ask me why,
I’ll say, “Upon the world’s most beautiful face is the world’s most beautiful smile.”

[Chorus]
When I see your smile, I can't look away
And everything else just fades away.
I sealed your smile upon my mind
Like a magic spell that can't unbind,
So, when I close my eyes
I see your smile
So, when I close my eyes
I see your smile

[Verse]
I’ve seen many amazing sights around the world, you see,
So, I’ve many ideas of what makes something a real beauty.
But nothing compares anywhere today from around the world
With the sight my eyes take in when your lips’ corners curl.

[Chorus]
When I see your smile, I can't look away
And everything else just fades away.
I sealed your smile upon my mind
Like a magic spell that can't unbind,
So, when I close my eyes
I see your smile
So, when I close my eyes
I see your smile

[Verse]
People are noticed for many things; the fashionable clothes they wear
Or even the way they hold their head, and how they do their hair.
But in any gathering in any place in the world,
Heads would turn and notice that you, my dear, have the most beautiful smile in the world.

[Bridge]
How could my heart resist your bewitching magical style?
How could my soul not fall in love with your beautiful smile?

[Chorus]
When I see your smile, I can't look away
And everything else just fades away.
I sealed your smile upon my mind
Like a magic spell that can't unbind,
So, when I close my eyes
I see your smile
So, when I close my eyes
I see your smile

[Outro]
See your smile
When I close my eyes, I see your smile
See your smile
When I close my eyes, I see your smile
I close my eyes, I see your smile

Your Smile

I’ve got my secrets; I’ve got my dreams;
I’ve got my thought life bursting at the seams.
And I can’t complain.
Even though it’s not always been this way,
I can’t complain.
Life’s what you make of it anyway.

And why can I be so high
About up and down life?
I forgave myself.
I learned to cry.

Feeling naked under heavy shame,
Thinking you've only got yourself to blame.
And the hurt inside:
Twists like a self-directed knife.
The hurt inside:
Pain you feel you can no longer hide.

Do you keep your faith? Hope peace is near?
Believing meaning will soon be clear.
And the pressure grows:
Your emotional bottle is filled with hope.
The pressure grows:
Strain, you feel you can no longer cope.

Darkness is suffocating: a claustrophobic cell:
Seems no way out of this obsidian hell.
So time to be brave:
Reach out for the relief you crave.
Time to be brave:
Find where and with whom you can be safe.

And let those tears flood
From your tired eyes.
Forgive yourself
And learn to cry.

My darkness lurks, it's my background friend
A reminder of what is my true deep strength
And I don't give in:
I forgive myself for who I once was.
I don't give in:
I accept who I have become.
I don't give in:
I love myself for who I am.

Don't give in
Love yourself
Don't give in
Love yourself

Learning to Cry

Life’s like that, things happen, but then again, things don’t.
It’s a jumble of what falls right and what falls wrong.
Such is life.

Love’s like that, you fall in it, but then again, you don’t.
It’s a jumble of what feels right and what feels wrong.
Such is love.

__________

I close my eyes; I travel to another place,
Where my closed eyes gaze upon a beautiful face.

She’s so beautiful; I know that face.
She’s so beautiful; I’ve caressed that face.
She’s so beautiful; I’ve kissed that face.
She’s so beautiful; I love that face.

I open my eyes; I stare at my reality.
It’s not paradise; it’s a shattered dream.

She’s so beautiful; I love that face.
She’s so beautiful; I misunderstood that face.
She’s so beautiful; I didn’t know that face.
She’s so beautiful; I miss that face.

I open my eyes; I see her stare back at me.
I realise she still feels for me.

I want to be there in the night looking into your sleeping eyes,
Seeing into your dreams, we’re hand in hand in paradise.
I want to be there in the night looking into your sleeping eyes,
Just being there with you.

I close my eyes and my dreams come true.
I open my eyes; I can’t see you.
I open my eyes; it’s dark around me
Sleeping eyes; nowhere to be seen.

I want to be there in the night looking into your sleeping eyes,
Seeing into your dream, we’re hand in hand in paradise.
I want to be there in the night looking into your sleeping eyes,
Just being there with you.

__________

Life’s like that, dreams happen, but then again, dreams don’t.
It’s a jumble of what comes true and what does not.
Such is life.

Love’s like that, you need it, but then again, you don’t.
It’s a jumble of what comes true and what’s destroyed.
Such is love.

One day I’ll be there in the night, I’ll see your sleeping eyes,
I’ll see us in your dreams in love in paradise.

Vision

As I look back, I wouldn't do it any different if I could do it all again.

Maybe I'd have taken an umbrella if I knew it was going to rain,
Or maybe that was when I discovered friends who made my day less grey.

So as I look back, I wouldn't do it any different if I could do it all again

Maybe I wouldn't have opened my eyes if I knew it would drive me insane,
Or maybe by waking up was what stopped me being a slave.

So as I look back, I wouldn't do it any different if I could do it again.

Maybe I wouldn't have fallen in love if I knew my heart would break,
Or maybe through the healing of my wounds I found my true soul mate.

So as I look back, I wouldn't do it any different if I could do it again.

I'd do it just the same.
In every single way,
I'd do it just the same.

Maybe I would have chosen a different path if I knew I'd make such mistakes,
Or maybe life is all about making the most of the path you take.

So as I look back, I wouldn't do it any different if I could do it all again.
I'd do it just the same.

Hindsight

You'd think I know how it goes.
I've been here many times before.
I'm not sure I can take anymore.
Don’t tell me, I know the score

So, when someone knocks on my door,
I hope the hand that's knocking is yours.
But you don’t come round anymore.
Don’t tell me, I know the score.

[Chorus]
Things always turn out the same
Same rules, same old game,
And I’ve only myself to blame,
Falling in love again.

I trusted you with my whole:
My heart, my body and my soul.
You don’t deserve me anymore.
Don’t tell me, I know the score.

[Chorus]

How could I think you'd be the one to make it work this time?
When am I gonna learn my lesson instead of losing my mind?

[Chorus]

I’ve only myself to blame,
Falling in love again and again and again...

Things Always Turn Out The Same

Ever since Fate had her way, and threw us together…..

We’ve had a good laugh, and we’ve had a good time,
Riotous behaviour, stepping over the line.
And many a time have we’ve been drunk
Into oblivion have we sunk
As we walk down amnesia lane
After a good night all the same.

But seriously….
We kept each other going as we were about to fall apart,
Taking time and lots of patience to make that new start,
Aye, you’re a good mate or should I say were…

I told you about my life,
All you told me were lies.
So fxxx off!
Just fxxx right off!

I worked it out quite quickly, just after you called yourself god,
You’re one big self-centred idiot; your ego is all you’ve got,
And many a time have you been drunk,
Opening your mouth and spouting junk,
As you walk along ‘put down’ lane,
After a night on the game.

But you bastard….
You slipped up and stepped over the mark as the girl I was in love with you proceeded to shark,
“I promise I’d never do that,” you said. Didn’t stop you taking her to bed.
Aye, you’re a good mate…

And you fxxxed up my world
As you fxxxed my girl.
So fxxx off!
Just fxxx right off!

Still you’re my best mate through and through and there isn’t much I wouldn’t do for you.
I’ll stand by you until you reach the end, that’s all I’m saying my best friend.

Still you fxxxed up my world
As you fxxxed my girl.
So fxxx off!
Just fxxx right off!

My Best Mate

A stupid row, you just shout
A stupid row, just get out
And you go! Where? Who knows?
And you go without a show
But you keep coming back
(Like a boomerang)
You keep coming back
(Like a starving dog)
You keep coming back
(Like a homing pigeon)
You keep coming back and back and back

You’re not there, you’re elsewhere
You’re not there, you don’t care
Stay away; it’s better that way
Stay away; give me peace for a day
But you keep coming back
(Like a recurring nightmare)
You keep coming back
(Like a nasty rash)
You keep coming back
(Like indigestion)
You keep coming back and back and back

Let’s kiss and make up
Not fight and break up
Let’s sleep and wake up
Let me take you up…

It’s a matter of time, I cross the line
It’s a matter of time, and then we fight
You go red and smack my head
You go red and try to break my neck
And you detonate
(Like a hand grenade)
You detonate
(Like a volcano)
You detonate
(Like a nuclear bomb)
You detonate and go off

But you keep coming back
(Like body odour)
You keep coming back
(Like an unpaid bill)
You keep coming back
(Like child’s yo-yo)
You keep coming back and back and back

You keep coming back
(Like a bout of flu)
You keep coming back
(Maybe I want you to)
You keep coming back
(Like we’re stuck with glue)
You keep coming back and I love you

You Keep Coming Back

About Me

Bio

I am a passionate writer living in England. I have been writing lyrics and stories since I was 17 years old for my own enjoyment, and as a way of connecting with and expressing my feelings and thoughts. Over the past few years I have realised I need to reconnect deeply with my creative side which has been drowned out by life. Publishing my lyrics is one way of reconnecting and is also a way of inspiring my children to have no fear in sharing their talents with the world.
