Wearing A Smile
Words & Music by John Turner

Sometime yesterday I thought
these old shoes would last forever
but now the laces are broken
the soles are walked away
These old blue jeans are high-water
faded, worn down to the bone
these old clothes are ripped
they?re dragging the ground

And the little boy (girl) inside them
lost his (her) way back home
And the old man (woman) inside them
has been left on his (her) own

But I?m wearing a smile
for each mile I walk without the past
Wearing a smile
to hide wrinkles
that are ageing me fast
Wearing a smile
to show my friends I?m ok
just for a little while

Your call on the telephone
was kind and honest
but it felt careful
Somehow I knew the conversation
would never hold it?s own
?Cause too many times before
I tried to tell you how I?d changed
but I knew you would worry
and then hurry away and
find another friend

And the little boy (girl) inside me
doesn?t know where he?s (she?s) been
And the old man (woman) inside me
sees the same road again

But I?m wearing a smile
for each mile I walk without the past
Wearing a smile
to hide wrinkles
that are ageing me fast
Wearing a smile
to show my friends I?m ok
just for a little while

The old man (woman) inside me
made it throught another day
The little boy (girl) inside me
will soon be on his (her) way

And I?ll be wearing a smile
for each mile I walk without the past
Wearing a smile
to hide wrinkles
that are ageing me fast
Wearing a smile
to show my friends I?m ok
just for a little while
