Saturday Night Serenade–Smile

Mr. R. and I have been having the best summer.  His odd work schedule, which we hated while I was still working, has been an absolute God-send.  We’ve stayed up late at night, slept in late in the morning, hung out until time for him to go to work.  We’ve had the luxury of being able to enjoy each other.

I’m studiously ignoring the fact that shortly, I’ll be back to the grind, and we’ll be back to the weeks where we don’t really see each other from Sunday night until Friday afternoon.  There is a possibility that he’ll get back to a more normal schedule before too long.  I just want to make sure I appreciate the moments.  I love this song.  It reminds me of how I feel about my sweet.  I hope you like it, too.  Happy Saturday night!

Smile

You’re better than the best
I’m lucky just to linger in your light
Cooler than the flip-side of my pillow (that’s right)
Completely unaware
Nothing can compare to where you send me
It lets me know that it’s okay (yeah, it’s okay)
And the moments when my good times start to fade

[Chorus:]
You make me smile like the sun,
Fall outta bed
Sing like a bird,
Dizzy in my head
Spin like a record,
Crazy on a Sunday night
You make me dance like a fool,
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold,
Buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Oh, you make me smile

Even when you’re gone
Somehow you come along
Just like a flower poking through the sidewalk crack
And just like that
You steal away the rain
And just like that

[Chorus]

Don’t know how I lived without you
‘Cause every time that I get around you
I see the best of me inside your eyes
You make me smile

You make me dance like a fool,
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold,
Buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Oh, you make me smile

[Chorus]

(Oh, you make me smile)
Oh, you make me smile
(Oh, you make me smile)
Oh, you make me smile
