I Start Counting /

Still Smiling

As the sun sets through the CO2
I think of things connected with you
Have you left the job
Do you still play the records that I gave away

I write down the dreams you're in
I write down the dreams I have of you
Some are set on earth
Others set elsewhere

Are you still smiling
Still, still smiling

I see the sharp eyed girls in magazines
Cutting through their clothes
With their shoulder blades
I try to ignore the sense of it
Watching me from their eyes

Are you still smiling
Still, still smiling

July was the last time I spoke to you
I'm one of life's losers you said

Such useless tricks my mind plays on me
Imagining the past is still to come
Pretending I can recapture
That lazy hot summer not so long ago

Are you still smiling

Are you still smiling

Are you still smiling
