Lyrics

We’ve been talking now for over a year
This is the first time that you’ve come here
Should I have explained it? Would you care?
For my smile ain’t there

List’ning out for the sound of the car
I am happy that you’ve come so far
I open the door and my heart soars
But my smile ain’t there

Some people know me so well
They can feel my sun
Hear my words wrapped up in love
When my smile’s locked up
When my smile’s locked up

I ask you in, my heart is thumping
We’re drinking now and relaxing
I see your questions, I feel my fear
Cos my smile ain’t there

Some people know me so well
They can feel my sun
Hear my words wrapped up in love
When my smile’s locked up
When my smile’s locked up

We’re chatting about those mindless things
And you’re speaking to me with your smile
And I’m trying my best not to hide
Cos my smile ain’t there, my smile ain’t there

You ask if I’m okay, I seem sad
I try to remember what I learnt
To write my story a diff’rent way
Cos my smile ain’t there

Some people know me so well
They can feel my sun
Hear my words wrapped up in love
When my smile’s locked up
When my smile’s locked up

My voice lends itself to my smile
Lilting and dancing, holding your eyes
Sharing my happy a diff’rent way
Cos my smile ain’t there

Some people know me so well
They can feel my sun
Hear my words wrapped up in love
When my smile’s locked up
When my smile’s locked up

Just listen to me and watch my hands
Hear the smile in my voice please understand
That I’m sharing my happy with you
Cos my smile’s in there, my smile’s in there

You tell me that I make you happy
My hand lovingly held over yours
My laughter that cannot be contained
Still finds an outlet without a smile

Now you know me well
You can feel my sun
Hear my words wrapped up in love
Tho my smile’s locked up
Tho my smile’s locked up
Tho my smile’s locked up
