"Sara Smile" as written by and Daryl/oates Hall....
Baby hair with a woman's eyes
I can feel you watching in the night
All alone with me and we're waiting for the sunlight
When I feel cold you warm me
When I feel I can't go on you come and hold me
It's you and me forever

Sara smile
Won't you smile a while for me

If you feel like leaving you know you can go
But why don't you stay until tomorrow?
And if you want to be free, all you have to do is say so
When you feel cold, I'll warm you
And when you feel you can't go on, I'll come and hold you
It's you and me forever

Sara smile
Won't you smile a while for me

    General CommentI was named after this song, too, rupptizzle! My dad loves this song, thus my name became Sara. :) Hall and Oats is awesome.

    General CommentA SAD song? [Puzzled.] This tune makes me want to bone with a chick named Sara during a morning thunderstorm.

    General CommentOh come on, NO comments here?
    Beautiful song, with a great voice, this has to be one of Hall and Oates bests.

    - It's also on the movie Serendipity, pretty funny scene.

    General CommentBeautiful song - Daryl Hall is one of the only white dudes who can sing blue-eyed soul (Robert Palmer also comes to mind...) It's fun to see so many Sara's named in honor of this song (I'll refrain from exploring the creepy angle). Does anyone know the biographical tale behind this? There's a "Sara Allen" who co-wrote a couple of H&O's songs. Is it the same Sara? Pray tell if you know.

    General CommentAw M-A-N! Right after I posted the above, I did a search, and found the answer to my own question in a nano-second. In Songfacts (awesome site as well - link below), we're told, A) Sara Allen is indeed Daryl Hall's girlfriend - for 28 YEARS!! They never married, and broke up in 2001. That's sucks as much as knowing that Sara had a sister, Janna, who co-wrote songs too with H&O (Kiss on My List being the biggest one - only one?), and SHE died in 1993 of leukemia. That made me all cheerful for the afternoon. Sortir les rasoirs!

    But you can't say the internet isn't powerful. Thanks, Al!
