Uncovering The Smile

4 Jan

I spoke of god that night until it bored me to tears

and hit upon the secret fears I know

so nothing is so private that it cant be recognized

nothing is so small it doesn’t show

I sat with him that night until the air was very dry

his hands were cold his face was tired

so nothing is so hateful that it cant be overcome

nothing’s good that isn’t hard to find

I watched him leave that night when he just disappeared

he just left me there, good-bye

so nothing is forever that doesn’t come and go freely

nothing ever laughs that doesn’t cry

uncovering the smile, you may not want to

uncovering the smile, cause it will haunt you
