Song Description

I have a crush on you, but I'm okay with that. We see each other every once in a while, and I'm glad to know you, and while I'd really like to get to know you better, I'm way too shy to confess my feelings. So I'll Just Smile. :)

Story Behind the Song

I adored this boy Matthew and wanted to be with him. He had a great heart, but he had a drinking problem as well. So I decided to accept my feelings for him but not act on them to avoid an unhealthy relationship. We stayed friends. Unfortunately, he died at age 27 in July of 2011, so I never got to tell him he was the inspiration for the song. He heard it at a show I played, but I didn't say it was about him. I did get to sing it to him on his death bed (he was in a coma after having a stroke), but I wish he'd heard this recorded version.

Lyrics

The thought of you amuses me
In a smile inside my heart
Kind of way
And you may never be mine someday
But I'm just glad that you
Are being you out there somewhere today

I'd like to grow in what I know of your gentle soul
By merely being near
But our encounters come unexpectedly
Like shooting stars I wish upon that streak across the sky
Delight my eyes
Then too soon disappear

But I'm just glad I know you
I'm happy we say hello
And I know I'll never show you
What you already know
So I'll Just Smile
I'll Just Smile

No, this feeling I feel inside of me
Will stay hidden away
As days go by
But I optimistically believe
That you may be
Equally as sweet on me
But also just as shy
You're just as shy

Maybe you're just glad you know me
You're happy we say hello
And I know you'll never show me
What I'd like to think I know
So I'll Just Smile
I'll Just Smile
