Liner Notes: 

I heard a line of dialogue on a Sky Arts programme, and immediately switched it off and started to write.
A couple hours later here it is...

The line was "All emotions stuck"... go figure

27.8.20 [@stevenwelseyguiles] is going to co-write on this one.

1.9.20: and here is the rough demo recording Smile

Lyrics: 

Chorus
Every time you smile
I love you even more
Gonna wait here a while
No hope to ignore
Without you by my side
I feel like I'm adrift
My heart simply flies
Till the fire dies

Verse
All emotions stuck, deep inside my skin
I want you so, 'till I melt within
I know you can't see every part that aches
And I know you don't know that I live in your shade
You don't see my tears

Chorus
Every time you smile
I love you even more
Gonna wait here a while
No hope to ignore
Without you by my side
I feel like I'm adrift
My heart simply flies
Till the fire dies

Bridge
Will you let me live
In the hope to kiss
In the air you breathe and the space you take
I just wanna give
And I just wanna live
In the air you breathe and the space you take

Chorus
Every time you smile
I love you even more
Gonna wait here a while
No hope to ignore
Without you by my side
I feel like I'm adrift
My heart simply flies
Till the fire dies
Till the fire dies

The insistent repetitions and ABBA rhymes really drive home the intense emotion. This is really well put together!

"I live in your shade is such a great" line. Love the title also. Heartfelt emotion and expressive lyrics. Very nice.

Great song and great performance! I like how you got the idea from a line you heard on tv. I do that all the time--and, of course, we're all watching more tv these days, aren't we!

These are really great lyrics, and clearly have inspired your performance--wonderful emotionally "authentic" vocal. Nice collab!!
