The Clash


You smile
And try to turn me on
To all you feel today

I wish
That I could smile at you
To make the feeling stay

But there's something
Deep beneath your eyes
That only love can see

And, now
I think you realize
What slowly comes for me.

Someday I'd like to justify
Your kindness towards me
But sometimes my feelings stifle
What I see myself to be.
