lyrics

Think I’ve been telling you too much baby
Can’t seem to melt the pleasant smile in your eyes
What do you look like when you’re not smiling?
And why, oh, why are you so sly?

I don’t want to play with you
I just want to see you cry
Cry that pleasant smile
From my sight

Your smile is made of chain mail baby
It fixes your mood at smug with no swing
Your defenses are strong now don’t you worry
I’m not planning to mount an uprising

I don’t want to play with you
I just want to see you cry
Cry that pleasant smile
From my sight

What do you need?
Human feelings
Why don’t you smile?
‘Cos I can’t fake it
You’re odd as hell
Yes, odd and lonely
Lonely

I know you’re not my man baby
I don’t feel you moving inside
I don’t want to be cruel or lie to you
But I know you’re not my kind

I don’t want to play with you
I just want to see you cry
Cry that pleasant smile
From my sight
