Tom Paxton - And Then You Smiled Lyrics




Something happened in the moment
Just before you whispered yes
All my hopes and dreams were shaking
At the edge of emptiness
I was certain you'd be tender
As you turned my love away
But then you smiled
Then you smiled
I could feel my heart beat louder
And my fingers turned to ice
I had dared to say, “I love you”
Now I'd have to pay the price
Who was I; what could I offer
Was I mad to even try
But then you smiled
Then you smiled
Then, if such a thing is possible
Your beauty seemed to grow
And I don't remember breathing
For a hundred years of so
And though you had not spoken
Still, you had not turned to go
And then you smiled
Then you smiled
I was certain to survive it
I was sure I'd love you still
Even though I had not won you
I'd had time to speak my fill
Then you took my hand and held it
And you whispered, “Yes, I will”
And then you smiled
Then you smiled
Then, if such a thing is possible
Your beauty seemed to grow
And I don't remember breathing
For a hundred years of so
And though you had not spoken
Still, you did not turn to go
And then you smiled
Then you smiled
Something happened in the moment
Just before you whispered yes
All my hopes and dreams were shaking
At the edge of emptiness
I was certain you'd be tender
As you turned my love away
But then you smiled
Then you smiled
Then you smiled
Then you smiled
Then you smiled
