Richard Shindell – Smiling lyrics
I had a place in the desert
Just a roof and four walls
Where I could wait for the rapture
Where I could ride out the fall

I was keeping a virgil
I was deep in a trance
I was holding a candle
To the palm of my hand

Then I saw you smiling then I saw you smiling
Then I saw you smiling
Like a fool I protested
I need time to prepare

You see I never expected
Something so simple and clear
So I tried to persude you
That I was not what you thought

That I would only disappoint you
That I can't be what I'm not

You stood there smiling
You stood there smiling
You stood there smiling

I looked around for a reference
But there was none I could see
Is there a thread to the sequence
That brought this vision to me

There are larks in the morning
Tracing lines to the lake
Three dimensions of mercy
Three dimensions of grace

You just stand there smiling
You just stand there smiling
You just stand there smiling
