Broken Smile

Can you see that girl

The one with the broken smile

She used to laugh and be fun

She used to be full of grace

It ain’t easy

An affair with a heart attack

Grabbed her by the neck

Said Don’t look back

And it ain’t easy

So she backed up

Gave up herself some time

So young before

She was undone

She could hear everybody scream

Don’t let go

But, she’s gone too far

She’s pushed off her star

It ain’t easy

Oh, God, it ain’t easy

Did you see the girl

The one who has a hat

I recognize her but

She looks almost dead

And yet, it ain’t easy

She can hear everything

She can see them

But she’s too weak

No, it ain’t easy

So she mucked up

Gave up and nearly drowned

So young and beautiful

But so full of doubt

She can hear everybody say

Don’t let go

She’s gone too far now

Paying for each lover

It ain’t easy

Oh, God, it ain’t easy

Can you see that girl

The one with the broken smile

She used to laugh

She used to be full of grace

It ain’t easy

There’s no way back now and then

There’s no way back now and then

No way back

It ain’t easy,

Oh, God, it ain’t easy
