"Inner Smile" as written by John/spiteri Mc Elhone and Gregg Alexander....
(One, two, three, four)
Yeh, yeh
Yeh, yeh
Yeh, yeh
Yeh, yeh
Yeh, yeh
Yeh, yeh
Oh yeh

You gave me something
Like loving
And took me in so soon
You took my feelings
From nothing
Came back at noon
Just meet me
I'm ready
To show myself to you

So if I lose my patience
You must try to understand
(Try to understand)
If I lose my patience
Oh yeah

Cause you make me feel
Cause you make me feel wild
You touch my inner smile
You got me in the mood
So come on and make your move
And free me

You make my wishes
As much as
Your kisses make me blue
You've found my river
Now will you
Escape away too
But baby
I'm ready
I'm falling into you

So if I lose my patience
You must try to understand
(Try to understand)
If I lose my patience
Oh yeah

Cause you make me feel
Cause you make me feel wild
You touch my inner smile
You got me in the mood
So come on and make your move
And free me

Free me
Free me
Wow wow wow
Wow wow wow
Wow yeh

Cause you make me feel
Cause you make me feel wild
You touch my inner smile
You got me in the mood
So come on and make your move
And touch my inner smile

Come get my inner smile
Smile
Smile
Yeah, yeah

Sometimes I need to be alone
There's times I need for you to phone
Sometimes you make me feel so high
There's times I ask myself why

Sometimes I need to be alone
There's times

    General CommentYES! From BILB...I was obsessed.

    When I hear this song, it's such a high. It really conveys what you feel for love...and I love how it sometimes barely finished "you make me feel..." because it's that feeling in you where you try so hard to get it out, but you can't describe the feeling. It's just like a wind inside of you, best described by:

    Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

    I could dance to it all day. Cheers!

    General Commentthis song is totally abouut love. Everytime i hear this song it makes me tingle from my toes all the way up to my hair. I've never been in love but this is the song that truly conveys to me what it would feel like. Ive been close but if i ever get the feeling this song gives me from a guy, then that guy would get pretty fucking lucky!!!!

    General CommentAre we entirely sure it's not "come on and make your MOVE" rather than "rule"? I could be wrong, I only got the Bend It Like Beckham soundtrack today (I'm obsessed with that movie) but it sounds like move to me. Either way, I think I'm going to be obsessed with this song all summer.

    General CommentI always felt this one has a strong lesbian undercurrent; I'm not a dyke myself and I've no idea if Sharleen is, but something in the ambience really matches it. Could also be 'cause the lyrics do not turn on "normal" roleplay between guys and chicks. She's asking the other one to return, to stay, but there's no hint of kneeling, clenching her hands or begging.

    General Commentjoiedevivre, I agree with you - I think she's talking specifically about sex, not just love in general: The rhythmic "yeah, yeah, yeah"s; "you make me feel wild"; "if I loose my patience, please try to understand".

    This song always makes me think of Harold Shipman, though ( a doctor / serial killer - see bbc.co.uk/crime/caseclosed/… ) - "if I loose my PATIENTS, please try to understand"!

    General CommentThis song could mean a lot of things, but mostly it just makes me feel ECSTATIC! Honestly, it's gotten me out of a lot of dark moments in my life.
