Smile Away

Monday comes in early with the shriek of an alarm
Cold cocked from a pleasant dream has really lost its charm
The room is cold, the toilets clogged, the waters brown again
You just woke up but back to bed to wait out this days end

Smile away
Smile smile smile
Smile away

Tuesday’s lunch has gone to hell when delivery lost their way
The orders wrong ,you’re starving, but they still want you to pay
The cold is hot, the hot is cold, your fork is in the wind
Don’t smack the hand still held out while they’re waiting for a tip

Smile away
Smile smile smile
Smile away

Wednesday is the hump day but the tired comes along
You whistle sounding simple ’cause you forgot your favorite song
You’re out of key, you’re mouth is dry, you pour yourself a drink
There is no ice, the freezers hot, the milk begins to stink

Smile away
Smile smile smile
Smile away

Thursday comes off simple while you wait for the weekend
You’re feeling rather dizzy looking around for your best friend
The clock has stopped, you’re on the rocks, your leg is shaking fast
You have a plan, can’t understand, they say they have to pass

Smile away
Smile smile smile
Smile away

When you’re feeling lowly
Smile smile smile
Smile away

Friday night your game is on to finally find relief
It’s time to get your action going hope no one calls police
Its time to go, the car is slow, the tire is flat again
That’s the last straw, you start to ball, oh let this be pretend

Smile away
Smile smile smile
Smile away

Saturday you go away to soak in the sunshine
You’re really looking forward for your chance to just unwind
The sky grows dark, and on the mark, it begins to rain
Now your soaked, it’s natures joke, next year you’ll go to Spain

Smile away
Smile smile smile
Smile away

Sunday walking down the street on a pleasant afternoon
You see the friend who turns their head walking right passed you
You see their frown, your upside down, what’s this all about
Your feelings hurt, you kick some dirt, you really want to shout

Smile away
Smile smile smile
Smile away

When you’re feeling lowly
Smile smile smile
Smile away

  1. are your photos graphically done, or are they negatives layered over one another? i recall as a teen playing in the dark room… experimenting with all sorts of technics in developing photos – was a lot of fun! anyway, i do like your images πŸ™‚
