10 TO SEE YOU SMILE

I walked 20 miles
Just to see you smile
Iíd walk another 20 miles
Just to see you smile
Well, Iím a man of wealth and luck
Got fancy cars and a pick-up truck
But I walk once in a while
Just to see you smile

I ironed one or two shirts
Just to see you smile
Iíd iron another shirt
Just to see you smile
Well, Iím a man of the highest grade
Got my own cook and a chambermaid
But I iron once in a while
Just to see you smile

The heavens open when you smile
The sun begins to shine
And in the nighttime when you smile
Itís shining overtime

I killed someone
Just to see you smile
Iíd kill another one
Just to see you smile
Well, Iím a man who worships peace
I was never known to be a beast
But I kill once in a while
Just to see you smile

But somethingís changed and somethingís wrong
Your everlasting smile is gone
I canít believe this is the end
How can I make you smile again?

I brought you a rose
Just to see you smile
I laid it down on your grave
Just to see you smile
Well, Iím a man whoís rather cool
Iíd never play the charming fool
But I bring you a rose once in a while
Just to see you smile

The heavens open...
