Radio XLVIII, side B, track 10: “When I See You Smile” by Bad English

Bad English - When I See You SmileOh, Bad English, I’m gonna keep this brief because no one is smilin’ around here right now.  My wife’s still sick, I either have what she’s having or my allergies just really hate me, and everyone in the house is just shuffling around like extras on “The Walking Dead”.  I don’t have the energy to smile.  Even at this song, which is saying something, because I love this song.  I can pretty much guarantee that I was smiling when I recorded this one again.  In fact, I have a clear picture in my head that I probably leapt to the stereo as soon as I heard those first few notes from the piano so I could press Play and Record, which is probably why on this particular track we just hear the lyrics immediately.  And I’m sure I was smiling that I was able to record a “pure” version of this.  But just can’t do it today, Bad English.  So I’m going to go grunt at my wife to make me some soup and have her grunt back at me to make HER some soup and I think that’s probably all that’s going to happen today.

“When I See You Smile”

Sometimes I wonder
How I’d ever make it through

Through this world without havin’ you

I just wouldn’t have a clue

‘Cause sometimes it seems like this wooorld’s closin’ in on me

And there’s no way of breakin’ free

And then I see you reach for me

Sometimes I wanna give up
Wanna give in
I wanna quit the fiiiight
And then I see ya, baby
And everything’s all right

Everything’s all right

When I seeeee yooou smiiile

I can face the world

Ohhhhh
You know I can do anything

When I seeeee yooou smiiile

See a ray of light

Ohhhhh
See it shinin’ right through the rain

When I see you smiiile

Baby, when I see you smile
At me

Oh yeah

Baby, there’s nothin’
In this woooorld that could ever do

What the touch of your hand can do

It’s like nothin’ that I ever knew

Heeey

And when the rain is fallin’
I don’t feel it
‘Cause ya heeere with me now

And one look atcha, baby

Is all I’ll ever need

Is all I’ll ever need

When I seeeee yooou smiiile

I can face the world

Ohhhhh
You know I can do anything

When I seeeee yooou smiiile

I see a ray of light

Ohhhhh
I see it shinin’ right through the rain

When I see you smile, baby

Baby, when I
See you smile at me

Sometimes I wanna give up

I wanna give in

I wanna quit the fight

Then one look atcha, baby

And everything’s all right

Hey
Everything’s all right

Sooo riiiiiiiiight

<awesome Bad English jam>

When I seeeee yooou smiiile

I can face the world

Ohhhhh
You know I can do anything

Yeeeah

When I seeeee yooou smiiile

I see a ray of light

Ohhhhh
I see it shinin’ right through the rain

Yeeeah

When I seeeee yooou smiiile

Yeah, I can face the world

Ohhhhh
You know I can do anything now

When I see you smiiiile

Oh yeah

Baby, when I see you

Smiiiiiile

Smile at me
