Happy Face

I think I need time or space
Maybe just a bit of both
To bring back a smiling face
Tonight it’s out on loan
Not that I’m all that sad
I think it’s the aftermath
Of crying too hard too much
And they don’t make pills for that

The pillows I sleep with know
Oh when it rains it pours
I turned all my insides out
There’s nothing to say anymore
But I’ll get along just fine
And soon I will find a place
To translate these tears of mine
And put on a happy face

Trouble has come and gone
Maybe it hangs around
I don’t feel like checking tonight
It’s late and I need to lay down
The world is an awkward place
For being a sensitive type
There’s too many ways to fall
And not enough help to rise

But I’ve got a drink beside
The bed stand where I will sleep
The headache will fade by then
Along with the rest of me
I do what I can to believe
The choices we make will count
For something beyond these dreams
It’s all worth the cost for now

It could be worse I suppose
And that’s what I tell myself
We have to keep feeding our hope
We have to keep up our health
When all of these tragic times
Have turned into history
I’ll look back and say it’s alright
It’s still worth it all to me

  1. I didn’t want to try to rhyme this one, I just wanted to let my thoughts flow. It is about that moment that you’re in a crowded room and having a conversation with someone and youre not even sure who with and you have no idea what they are saying. It’s that moment that you feel terrible for not listening to what they have to say, but you don’t remember how because you’re listening to something else across the room.

    Lost in Space

    Lost in space
    (The space between us)
    (Your eyes across the room)
    I can’t breathe
    (Because I know you’re watching)
    I saw you glance
    (In my direction)
    My month’s longest conversation
    (Just happened without a word)
    I heard your thoughts
    (Behind your searching eyes)
    Searching for you
    (I froze in my place)
    When your eyes met mine
    (I felt very faint)
    I have to admit
    (I was showing off for you)
    Because I saw you looking
    (I laughed a little louder)
    When you watched me talk
    (I smiled a little brighter)
    You deserve my best
    (And my best was all for you)
    When I just smiled at them
    (It was actually meant for you)
    I hope you realize
    (I secretly wanted only you to see)
    You see, When I know you’re searching my mind
    (I can’t help but flash a smile)
    What did she just say?
    (I forgot to listen to anything but you)
