Carry Your Smile (Always With You)

You came all of a sudden
just like a hurricane into my life
And within less than one week
you made my flesh completely creep

“In the future – for better or for worse
Please let me hug and squeeze you”
Those were just some of your words

“And whatever the future may hold
Please never let me go
Please let me keep you in my life”
In this night we promised to be forever, twice

~

Gorgeous, open-hearted, lovable
Extraordinary and very special
Sentimentalists to the core
I’ve never felt so much loved
Needed and belonged before

We were 99%
Nearly perfect
We both know this is true
So please, carry your smile (always with you)

~

It wasn’t meant to last
‚cause you fell in love with another one
I should have lost my control
and fallen straight to the ground
With my heart broken into pieces
again a painful wound

At this stage it didn’t happen
‚cause I really wanted to stay
Yes I thought we’re fated
to belong in another way

You fell in love again the other day
Sorry my dear,
this time I really can’t stay
So I’ll finish these lyrics and then go away

~

Gorgeous, open-hearted, lovable
Extraordinary and very special
Sentimentalists to the core
No one ever told me the truth
as straight-lined as you did
in this night once more

We were 99%
Nearly perfect
We both know this is true
So please, carry your smile (always with you)

~

Talking to you was always talking to my reflection
From the very beginning
you and me
we had this very special connection

You gave me back the missing spark of confidence
which got lost ages ago
Just like a missing sound with lyrics
That I’ll forever get to know

You believed in me as much as I did in you
And within a few days,
you understood me more
than anyone else could before

Always wanted me to remain
My dear,
I really want you to stay the same

~

Gorgeous, open-hearted, lovable
Extraordinary and very special
Sentimentalists to the core
We’re both so addicted to music
which fulfills our souls even more

We were 99%
Nearly perfect
We both know this is true
So please, carry your smile (always with you)

~

I always hoped that one day
we’ll both be free
and sit in the glooming evening sun,
down under a beautiful willow tree.

Old, happy and full of wrinkles,
grateful that once
in our early years
we could finally allay all our fears

With our grandchildren we remember the „good old days“,
our whole life,
a long beautiful soundtrack
with many intensive and different ways

~

Gorgeous, open-hearted, lovable
Extraordinary and very special
Sentimentalists to the core
I would have given up quite everything
just to be closed to you once more

We were 99%
Nearly perfect
We both know this is true
Maybe it was just the 1% matter of time
That we will never get to know

Gorgeous, open-hearted, lovable
Extraordinary and very special
Sentimentalists to the core
My dear, you’re more than just a good friend,
you’re my one and truly soul mate
My love
My home
Maybe until the end

We could have been 100%
Perfect
We both know this is true
So please, carry your smile
‚cause despite the fact that I’m leaving
inside I’m always with you
