about

With A Smile was an important song for me. It tells of the internal struggle I faced when deciding wether or not to walk away from a comfortable career and life to pursue something more fulfilling.

lyrics

Feet planted firm in the dirt, words fly overhead but a few ever land on my earth
Little explosions of hope let me know of a life that’s beyond,
The sound I hear calling soothes and it stokes, then it’s gone
I wake with a weariness that I cannot shake
Hope lives inside days thinking how long must I wake
Invisible hand beckoning me, I supressed it too long
The sound I hear calling soothes and it stokes, then it’s gone
Then it’s gone…
So I’ll wait, with a smile on my face
I’m going to wait, with a smile on my face
Knowing in time, that every silence must break
I’m going to wait, with a smile on my face
A falling stone I am, momentum I gain
Released from proceedings that twisted and turned me away
Pain by decision, fulfilment is all we’ve got
The sound I hear calling, soothes then it stokes then it’s gone
Then it’s gone…
So I’ll wait, with a smile on my face
I’m going to wait, with a smile on my face
Knowing in time, that every silence must break
I’m going to wait, with a smile on my face
The path it winds but I’ll stay inside the lanes I’ve made
Temporary paper pleasure gone and lost its hold on me
Forfeiting sleep becomes easy under the right name
Savour the chase
