Lyrics

The Distance to a Smile
by Marc Raco copyright 2006
She dries away a tear,
And wipes away her fear.
And tries to carry on,
Who knew it would be gone?
It had only just begun,
And now already done.
She?s left there asking why,
Just waiting there to die.

(Refrain )
But she will never tell a soul,
And let on that she?s not whole.
Though in her heart there?s empty space,
You?ll never see it on her face.
She?s the only one she?ll tell her story to?
And she will never show her heart,
Since it would disintegrate apart
You?d think her life is going well,
But every day?s a living hell.
If you looked into her eyes you?d really see?

So many nights apart,
She cries for her broken heart,
Tries to figure what the answer is
Was it her or was it his?mistake?
The distance to a smile,
Seems to be more than a mile.
But she will never let another know
Her face betrays how things are so.

(Refrain )
But she will never tell a soul,
And let on that she?s not whole.
Though in her heart there?s empty space,
You?ll never see it on her face.
She?s the only one she?ll tell her story to?
And she will never show her heart,
Since it would disintegrate apart
You?d think her life is going well,
But every day?s a living hell.
If you looked into her eyes you?d really see?

(Bridge)
Hiding away from the troubled sea,
Wearing a mask so there?s no identity,
There?s no way to know the way the hours feel
No one can see because she?s not real.
But just look in her eyes,
And you?ll see the lies.

One day perhaps she?ll know
The distance she must go,
To be the way she once had been
That person was her better twin.
But the pace is slow for now,
And she?s still learning how,
To make it through into the clear
Without one more escaping tear.

(Refrain )
But she will never tell a soul,
And let on that she?s not whole.
Though in her heart there?s empty space,
You?ll never see it on her face.
She?s the only one she?ll tell her story to?
And she will never show her heart,
Since it would disintegrate apart
You?d think her life is going well,
But every day?s a living hell.
If you looked into her eyes you?d really see?

Hiding away from the troubled sea,
Wearing a mask so there?s no identity,
There?s no way to know the way the hours feel
(repeat, etc.)
