Behind That Smile.

Behind this smile

I hear you singing;

Hoping against hope

It's me you're loving.

x

A love I crave

From afar

A love so rare

A shining star.

x

Behind this smile

At a painful cost

Myself I'm fooling

In your shadow lost.

x

A love I crave

From afar

A love so rare

A shining star.

x

Behind this smile

In the sun's beam

I try my hardest

To be seen.

x

A love I crave

From afar

A love so rare

A shining star.

x


Behind this smile

Imagining such loving;

But slowly questioning

Are these thoughts fitting ?

x

A love I crave

From afar

A love so rare

A shining star.

x

Behind this smile

I still feel pain;

One heart's hope

Crying in the rain.

x

A love I crave

From afar

A love so rare

A shining star.

x

Behind this smile

I'll carry on hoping

That it's me one day

You will be loving.

x

A love I crave

From afar

A love so rare

A shining star.

x

Behind this smile

My dream now true;

The words you sang

'I do love you.'

x

A love I crave

From afar

A love so rare

A shining star.
