Rock Ballad of The Week: David Gilmour “Smile”

Would this do

To make it all right

While sleep has taken you

Where I’m out of sight

I’ll make my getaway

Time on my own

Search for a better way

To find my way home

To your smile

Wasting days and days

On this fight

Always down and up

Half the night

Hopeless to reminisce

Through the dark hours

We’ll only sacrifice

What time will allow us

You’re sighing… sighing

All alone

Though you’re right here

Now it’s time to go

From your sad stare

Make my getaway

Time on my own

Leaving’s a better way

To find my way home

To your smile
