Remind Me to Smile

  • We'll take a taxi to the show
    We could report by phone
    We could remind ourselves that
    We must laugh

    Reconsider: 'fame'
    I need new reasons
    This is detention it's not fun at all

    [Chorus]
    Remind me to smile
    You know, 'the old friends' line
    It gets so I feel like
    I'm in this cold, glass, cage

    I've got the horrors
    Check, over my shoulder
    I punch the air and fight but
    No-one's there

    You you oh no
    Old scars don't show
    We fall you see
    Crawl crawl in love
    I dive so clean
    Young things don't scream
    Toys toys so far
    Boys boys you are

    [Chorus]

    Get off the car
    Get off the phone
    Move from my window, leave me alone

    Keep your revivals
    Keep your conventions
    Keep all your fantasies that's all we are Writer/s: Gary Anthony Webb, Gary Anthony James Webb

  • Dwasifar from Usa Interesting that this song about dealing with fame borrows the bass riff from David Bowie's "Fame."
