Smile

David Gilmour 2002

Music: Gilmour
Lyrics: Polly Samson

Album releases: Film/video:
On An Island
Live in Gdansk
David Gilmour in Concert
Remember that night
Live in Gdansk

This song was first played live by David Gilmour at concerts and ending up on the concert film David Gilmour in Concert. Years later it was released as a single and on the album On An Island.

Would this do to make it all right
While sleep has taken you where I'm out of sight

I'll make my getaway
Time on my own
Search for a better way
To find my way home to your smile

Wasting days and days on this fight
Always down, and up half the night
Hopeless to reminisce through the dark hours
We'll only sacrifice what time will allow us
You're sighing...

All alone though you're right here
Now it's time to go from your sad stars

I'll make my getaway
Time on my own
Leaving's a better way
To find my way home to your smile
