Rock Ballad of The Week: Back To Back Edition – Chicago “Make Me Smile”


Children play in the park, they don’t know

I’m alone in the dark, even though

Time and time again I see your face smiling inside

I’m so happy

That you love me

Life is lovely

When you’re near me

Tell me you will stay

Make me smile

Living life is just a game so they say

All the games we used to play fade away

We may now enjoy the dreams we shared so long ago

Oh my darling, got to have you. Feel the magic when I hold you

Cry sweet tears of joy, touch the sky

Now I need you more than ever. No more crying – we’re together

Tell me you will stay. Make me smile
