Sweet and tender things
Are so much nicer than silly games
Softness makes it easier to smile

It's better to remember things
That makes the sun shine in your memory
There's clouds enough for you to see
Smile for me and take a look around

And you know that you're in love
When things are better than you thought they'd ever be
Won't you smile for me
I like what's going down

hmm

And you know that you're in love when things
Are better than you thought they'd ever be
Make a pretty smile for me (smile for me)
I like what's going down (since you've been around)

Sweet and tender things (Sweet and tender things)
Makes you feel better than playing games (better than playing games)
Softness (softness, softness)
Makes it easier to smile

You're in love when things
Are better than you thought they'd ever be
Smile for me
Sure you like what's going down (since you've been around)
