Your eyes
They often lie
And leave me feeling
Misunderstood
Our tragedy
Plays out like a symphony
A breath and a whisper
Are your clues
Inside we shake
Because we're afraid
But we're certainly not afraid of you
These dreams instead
Who like a blanket
Has smothered me but still left me warm

I don't need sympathy
Or your apologies
Why don't you understand?
The face you see
Well it belongs to me
And I'm doing the best I can...

Just to make you smile
Just to make you smile
Again...

Faith, we're acting on courage alone
What will they do
When that's all through?
Dance in the dark
Sleeve pinned with a heart
Just to let you know
That we're in pain

I don't want sympathy
Or your apologies
Why don't you understand?
The face you see
Well it belongs to me
And I'm doing the best I can...

Just to make you smile
Just to make you smile
Again...

Every now and then you have to see
That the wall we've built has landed on me
Every now and then why don't we pretend
That things will come together in the end
Every now and then just open your eyes
Does every part of everything have to be right
Every now and then- so that after a while
I might get through and make you smile
