Never Stop Smiling


Never Stop Smiling

I dress in my high heels
Just to get attention
I wait here in line
For one second of your time
You grin at my face
Give distracted embrace
And then you are gone
Focus only lasts so long
Then suddenly I tear up
There's something I gotta clear up

You cry when you laugh
I laugh to keep from crying
But what I don't show you
Won't tear the silver lining
If the timing was right
We'd have more than goodnight
If I could let you know
We'd never stop smiling

Could you tell me my name
As you stand with your feet bare
Grounded to the earth
Does my touch hold any worth
You grin at my face
I leave a lipstick trace
And then you disappear
As if I'd never been here
So secure in your own skin
But lost in oblivion

Repeat Chorus:

You're the most beautiful thing I have ever seen
White apparition appearin' in my dreams and
Nothing about you blends into the norm
Perfection manifested in a human form and
You're the most beautiful thing I have ever known
Why can't I tell you I want you alone?

One day I'll let you in
To our life inside my head
Doubled over in laughter
Happily ever after
But until then I'll keep lying
And you'll never see me...stop smiling.
