I'm Still Smiling

from by Jenna Paone

lyrics

into you
the farther down that i go
the less i understand
the more that i know
still i can’t shake the worry
the oldest story
your eyes
shine
find
someone new
to believe in
and dreams never come true

don’t know why i’m still frightened
you know i’ve been trying
just to see this through

and some nights
i hold too tight to my heart
and some nights
i just can’t fight anymore
but you say we’re all right
you say we’ve been right from the start
see i’m
still smiling
if you are

can’t we go
back to basics
when everything was a bet
and it was
just you and me in the place
the sun never set
we’d trade words for water
late night promises
you
are
who
i
choose to believe in
the one thing I can’t lose

and if i was certain you would come
i’d open up my arms

and some nights
i hold too tight to my heart
and some nights
i just can’t fight anymore
but you say we’re all right
you say we’ve been right from the start
see i’m
still smiling
if you are

if you are
see i’m still smiling
see i’m still smiling

and in the end it comes down
to what do you want
and i swear
if you weren’t real by now
i’d make you up

don’t know why i’m still frightened
you know i’ve been trying to get by
all the lines we draw
and the fire door
the liar that you took me for

and some nights
i hold too tight to my heart
and some nights
i just can’t fight anymore
but you say we’re all right
you say we’ve been right from the start
see i’m still smiling
if you are
if you are
see i’m smiling
see i’m still smiling
