lyrics

i'm all smiles with you

i need a tune up
a leg up
new get up
a way to change something into the same
this shit's no longer cutting it
it's duller than daytime, older than dirt
and i'm ready to bury myself again

i'm all smiles when you enter the room
and i'm a child when you move
it's the kind of thing you can't let go
and a feeling forever new

with every moment
you stutter
you stall
lose ground and find your way back, falling down
wits no longer helping this
with others your blunders
destroy the words
you spend time to craft so well, oh well

i'm all smiles when you enter the room
and i'm a child when you move
it's the kind of thing you can't let go
and a feeling forever new
i'm all smiles with you
i'm all smiles with you
if the critics were always right
i would have fallen by now
the words never fit the page
i'm sick of crawling back to you

we're only making
a mountain, an ocean
a house, a home
a life into our own
fire to gas, sit back relax
i know all the flames will mask this pain
and bring us back to feeling ourselves again

i'm all smiles when you enter the room
and i'm a child when you move
it's the kind of thing you can't let go
and a feeling forever new
i'm all smiles with you
i'm all smiles with you
if the critics were always right
i would have fallen by now
the words never fit the page
i'm sick of crawling back to you

all i know is how to let go
and all i know is how to move on
leave it all unresolved
the same thing is happening
