The Smile is Gone

Sometimes knowing that everything will be alright, knowing that time will heal all wounds, is not enough to beat the feeling that it will never be the same, that you will never be smiling as genuinely as before. 

The Smile is Gone describes this, to me general, feeling of missing. And missing is something you can learn… 

Release date on Spotify, iTunes, Deezer, and other digital platforms: March 26

Gm	Eb	F7	Dm	C9/d  Dm

I guess I’m doing quite okay 
Everything just carries on 
My hair’s still growing 

Done the dishes, read a book 
Cleaned the house a second time 
The mess inside ain’t showing 

F	F/g	Am 
Someday I will be okay 
Dm		Cm 
Somehow everything goes on 
Bb		F/a		Gm 
Sure the pain will go away 
Bb	C	Dm	C/e
But the smile is gone 

I know that I will be okay 
Somehow everything goes on 
Every night has a new day 
Bb	C	Dm	F#dim/c
But the smile is gone 

Close my eyes and drive to work 
Wear the mask that fits too tight 
No one sees what’s going on 

Keeping busy surely helps 
Till there’s nothing left to do 
Then the thoughts just carry on 

Someday I will be okay 
Somehow everything goes on 
Sure the pain will go away 
But the smile is gone 

I know that I will be okay 
Somehow everything goes on 
Every night has a new day 
But the smile is gone 

Instr

Yes, I will be okay 
Someday everything goes on 
Missing is something you can learn 
But the smile is gone
