Smile

This song is by Tribe and appears on the album Sleeper (1993).

Wrings her hands
With his back turned
Tiring of her smile
Oh to spin him round and tell him how it feels
To run and run and not go anywhere
Talk and talk and not say anything
Tell me tell me are you listening?
Tell me tell me are you listening?

And she can hear the revolution
It's the fading voice of reason
Slipping down the back horizon
Drowned out by the television

Rolls her eyes
Sorts her daydreams
In a haze of sunset glow
She recalls the pretty story that she knew
And says you never take me anywhere
And then you wonder what I worry for
Tell me tell me what I wanna hear
Tell me tell me what I'm waiting for

And now we've learned
To read and write and speak and eat and sow and reap
And love and hate and stay up late and while away the lazy days
And while away the lazy days
And wait our turn for what we face
And now it's time to start to count the days
And now it's time
