Smile Blues

3-23-17

I don’t believe the smile you’re showin’ tonight
I can see it in your eyes somethin’s not right
I’ve never seen it before the smile you’re showin’ tonight

 

Whatever happened to those eyes that shined ever true
The light went right on through those ol’ baby blues
I know what I’m missin’, the eyes that shined ever true

 

You’re holdin’ me close but I feel only chill in the air
I’m right here in your arms but it just don’ seem like you care
Your touch may be sweet but I feel only chill in the air

 

You talk all night long but you don’t say a word to me
Tellin’ yesterday tales but not what tomorrow will bring
You rave on and on but you don’t say a word to me

 

I see you lookin’ at a lady with eyes that used to shine for me
I see you walkin’ with a lady just as close as you can be
You’re smilin’ at that lady with a smile that used to smile for me

 

Your leavin’ in the morning is bound to make me sad all day
You look as if you can’t wait to go on your way
That ol’ sun may be shining but I’m bound to be sad all day

 

I’ll soon be on my way just as far away as I can go
Where I won’t see any trace of the love that I used to know
It’s all I can do, go as far away as I can go

 

So don’t try and sell me the smile you’re showin’ tonight
And don’t you start lying by saying we’re doing all right
I’ve never seen it before, the smile you’re showing me tonight
