Light blue is the sky above the meadow
Where you flutter by and wouldn't go
Diving down I'm crashing to the ground
Not again, please don't

I know not to touch what I can't afford
But how could I keep it out of my thought?
I'm just a mortal – sneakers, jeans and all
I can't carry on
You can only smile when I'm not around

At ease with the world, you golden butterscotch
Me a graceless wretch, what can I do but watch?
Rude in the morning, regretted at night
That's how I stay on guard
Cause you can only smile when I'm not around

Nobody ever died of a broken heart
But I don't wanna be the first
Harvey Williams would be proud...

Cause you can only smile when I'm not there
You can only smile when I'm away
You can only smile when I'm six feet under in the ground
