V E R S E 1
She used to light the room.
She’d share her smile so freely.
A laugh for everyone.
And I was hers completely.
But she was never mine.
So much I wanted to say
I guess I missed my chance
For that sweet smile he took away
V E R S E 2
At first he came to stare
So tough and yet so helpless.
He found her welcome eyes,
And burned until she melted.
Too soon it was too late.
I never asked her to stay.
By now I should move on,
But for that smile he took away.
B R I D G E
And she’s still smiling in my mind.
And I’m still hanging on to that lifeline,
V E R S E 3
Guess what? He broke her heart.
She’s gone where he can’t find her.
To try and start again.
And put that life behind her.
I saw her in this bar.
She’s just the same to this day –
Same voice and hair and face,
All but that smile he took away.
