"Smile" as written by and David Gray....
I'm falling by the wayside
I'm sinking with the sun
Everything I do
Is wrong wrong wrong
Gazing at the billboards
Staring down the broken lines

Sleeping on the backseat
I could not believe
You were right up there beside me
Tugging at my sleeve
And putting up your lipstick
Just like you did a thousand times
And something in your eyes that makes me smile
Oh yeah
Something in your eyes that makes me smile
Oh yeah
I wake up in the darkness
Its more than I can stand
I'm reaching out to touch it
It breaks up in my hand
I've never known the headlights
To shine so cold

I'm waiting for the morning
To steal over the hills
I'm urging for the road
To speed these wheels
I'm watching for the sunrise
Turning all the teardrops gold

Cause something in your eyes that makes me smile
Oh yeah
Something in your eyes that makes me smile
Oh yeah
And something in your eyes that makes me smile
Oh yeah
Oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah

    General CommentTHIS SONG IS AMAZING.

    From my understanding, it's pretty much one of the worst forms of unrequited love. It's like you cared so much for the other person, who led you on about as far as a person is capable of doing so, only to leave you to figure out it didn't mean much of anything to them.

    "Something in your eyes that make (he doesn't say makeS) me smile, oh yeah." SO depressing. The pain he evokes through the quiver and misery in his voice is completely riveting.

    I wake up in the darkness
    Its more than I can stand
    I'm reaching out to touch it
    It breaks up in my hand
    I've never known the headlights
    To shine so cold

    God, I wish I could marry this David Gray man!

    General Comment"Something in your eyes that makes me smile" then later he says "I'm watching for the sunrise, Turning all the teardrops gold".

    He's smiling because she is crying...
