Smilin'
There's an albatross in your eyes
As I stand there, once, bikelessly
There's a glimpse of you
Between the passing traffic
Without looking both ways
You cross the street

How long has it been?
How lost are we now?
It's been said that great friends don't need to know
Speak to me
Or at least your eyes did
Before we get excited it's time to go

And when will I
Maturely come to terms with
The only constant thing in life is change
A loved one's lost
Two hearts separate, oh
But God forbid if something would stay the same

I'm not hurt
In fact, I feel nothing
Cause I wish that I lived far away
We both said some dumb things as kids
Who knew it would make so much sense today

We all build fences that turn into walls
And forget what's on the outside when it's done
Well the day that you find someone in your wall
Is the day that you know you found the one

And when will I
Maturely come to terms with
The only constant thing in life is change
A loved one's lost
Two hearts separate, oh
But God forbid if something would stay the same

When will I
Maturely come to terms with
The only constant thing in life is change
A loved one is lost
Two hearts separate, oh
But God forbid if something would stay the same

When will I
Maturely come to terms with
The only constant thing in life is change
And life's not fair
And life's a game
And God forbid if something would stay the same
