I did not set out to write another love song for Valentine's Day - honest! I was trying for "protest". But what the hey... Here it is:

...And Then She Smiled

Just another Friday night
Another drunken party night
I guess it must have been somebody's home
Cigarette butts on the floor
And empty bottles by the front door
And a crowd to make you feel alone

Music loud enough to stifle
any conversation
People shouting silently
and dancing on their own

And then she smiled
And suddenly her eyes
Shone brighter than the stars
and all the firmament
The sun and moon went dark and in her eyes
I saw Atlantis rise
In boiling seas I saw colliding continents
And time was standing still
Because she smiled

Just another working day
Frustrating, tiring, boring day
When I ask myself what it's all for
Push the button, turn the key
And wonder what's become of me
And if I have the strength for any more

Wading ankle deep
in broken dreams and aspirations
Feeling sorry for myself
as I walk through the door

But then she smiles
And suddenly her eyes
Shine brighter than the stars
and all the firmament
The sun and moon go dark and in her eyes
I see Atlantis rise
In boiling seas I see colliding continents
And time is standing still
Because she smiles


The path of life is never straight
I see the potholes far too late, and I find
I'm climbing out as much as up
But I never count the scars,
Instead I thank my lucky stars
For I have the medicine on tap

And in times of sadness and depression or misfortune
When I feel as if I have been dealt another slap

Just then she smiles
And suddenly her eyes
Shine brighter than the stars and all the firmament
The sun and moon go dark and in her eyes
I see Atlantis rise
In boiling seas I see colliding continents
And time is standing still
Because she smiles
