lyrics

THOUSAND YARD SMILE

It wasn't all that long ago that
I was in this rentd room and
You were somewhere else completely
Half a world away

Every now and then my thoughts came back to you
Memories on the sea breeze
I could do nothing
My heart sank but it's learning to swim

Forgive me 'cause I need to tell you
It was me that did my best to help you
Your thousand yard smile lights up the day

Another day goes by when I don't see you
Can't feel like I don't need you
These walls are 4-star luxury
Paint's falling off and there's
Moths on the ceiling

Forgive me 'cause I need to tell you
I'll do all I can to help you
Your thousand yard smile lights up the day

Hey! Come on and let it show
'Cause you know me I've done
Enough for everyone
And you've got nothing from me
Nothing on me
You can't just walk away

I remember nothing except
You were looking stunning and you
Filled the room with energy
That no-one else could sense but me

So any time you're passing call on me
The future's for the taking we can be
Something
Life's fine, I use it all the time

Forgive me 'cause I need to tell you
I'm a shadow of myself without you
Your thousand yard smile lights up the day

Hey! Come on and let it show
'Cause you know me I've run
Away from everyone
If you've got something for me
Don't ignore me
It's time we seized the day

Sitting in this castle looking
On the plus side I see
You are here and I am
With you always
