Smilin' Inside Lyrics

Brenda Freed Smilin’ Inside

 1. My Human Loves Me

Brenda Freed, Val Roessling, JB Braden

I lay around all day in the shade,
go in, go out, I got it made
I got a job in security, I sleep on the porch, don’t take it seriously,
I keep my nose to the ground,
alert for crime.  When I here a sound,
I wait for a sign to look up and think
hould I chase or if I do will my human get on my
case like she does when I beg
and I give her sad eyes then I cock my head and
I get a surprise  XXXGotcha,
Like when she’ll throw a stick and fetch she’ll say
but I prefer the game of
keep away. It’s so fun to watch her run around
and not complain.
I know how to jerk her chain,
I got her trained

My human loves me, She’s my best friend
My human loves me,
doesn’t keep me penned
Lets me sleep all day,
makes me smile when she wants to play
She makes good company,
my human loves me

I got some friends in the neighborhood,
we run around, get into no good.
One is Fido, the other one’s Spot
They don’t look like much
but they’re all I got.
We like to dig up flowers

in the neighbor’s yard,
eat their cat food for hours.
Life is so hard and we
lick our lips and rest awhile.
My friends chase cars
but that ain’t my style.
I get to ride in a Plymouth
with my head in the wind,
when we go to the river, I get to jump in,
I know SWIM, swim.
I also do sit and I comprehend no,
but only what and where and when I want
so you see I know a few tricks, I gotta brain.
My human’s not so hard to entertain,
I got her trained

My human loves me, Takes me everywhere
My human loves me,
loves to brush my fluffy hair
Always thinks I’m so cute,
likes to kiss my snoot
She makes good company,
my human loves me

My human loves me,
she keeps me off the leash
My human loves me, serves me steak,
sometimes quiche
My life is so cool,
never had to go to that dumb dog school
She makes good company,
my human loves me.

2. Don’t Let the Sun Go Down

Brenda Freed, Val Roessling, JB Braden

I like watching a late movie at home
I like talking on the telephone

I want my coffee with sugar and cream
I wanna sit on my porch and dream
I want space all around me
I crave simplicity

And I won’t let the sun go down
without saying I love
Won’t let the sun go down without saying I love

I like finding faces in clouds
I like being not one of the crowd
I like a good laugh with just a few friends
I like not knowing what’s at the end
I like cloth napkins with every meal
And I expect the best things in life to be real

And I won’t let the sun go down
without saying I love
Won’t let the sun go down without saying I love

I like the sound of a bright starry night
I like the scream of a child’s delight
I wanna feel the warm sun on my skin
I wanna go where I’ve never been
I want the freedom to play with my time
And I’ve learned to live on a dime

And I won’t let the sun go down
without saying I love
Won’t let the sun go down without saying I love
Won’t let the sun go down without saying I love
Don’t let the sun go down without saying I love
Don’t let the sun go down without saying I love
Don’t let the sun go down
Don’t let the sun go down without saying I love

3. Never Change Your Style

Fraser Nimmo (used with permission)

Never Change Your Style
Fraser Nimmo

If we never meet again
I’ll always see you as a friend
You gave me meaning for a while
May you never change your style

With a sympathetic ear
And words of optimistic sense
You unraveled all my fears
Put my uneasy mind at rest
Next time I get the chance

To ease another’s pain
Then I hope that I’ll come in on cue
And if I’m half as good as you I’ll smile
And in your absence thank your style
When this present tense is past
And no unspoken hopes come true
Some other time some other where
Somebody else will count on you
And I know you’ll be the light upon
In sickness and in strength
To ease frustrations, aches and pains
Forgive mistakes and remember names
And you’ll smile
May you never change your style
So if we never meet again
I’ll always see you as a friend
You gave me meaning for a while
May you never change your style
And at some time every year
A tune will jog my mind

A certain chord will fall in place
And in that sound I’ll see your face
And I’ll smile
May you never change your style
You gave me meaning for a while
May you never change your style

4. You’ll Never Know

Brenda Freed & Bob Clark

Early morning as the sun rose
We walked to the river without our clothes
Stood on the banks of the Blanco
Watched the pale moon go.

As the morning sky turned blue
I confess I did too
There was really nothing you could do
Some walls you can’t break through

Chorus

You’ll never know what you’ve found
‘Til the walls come falling down
You’ll never know until daylight
What was lost in the dark of night

The night was short, our love was sweet
You really knocked me off my feet
How much was truth? How much deceit?
Was that a trick, or was it a treat?

Sometimes the fear grows so strong
I don’t know what went wrong
Why with the coming dawn
I missed you before you were gone

Chorus

5. Simple Words

Brenda Freed & Bob Clark

Suzanne grew up in a house full of pain
With nothing to lose and nothing to gain
Her mama was weak, her daddy was mean
She left them behind when she turned seventeen
Young Suzanne took flight
in the middle of the night
Left the window wide open,
she slammed the door tight

She hit the city alone and afraid
She couldn’t regret the choices she’d made
He was tall dark and ugly
in ways she could not see
With nothin’ but empty where his heart oughta be
His words were simple.  It’s simple words that kill
They pulled like a magnet on her iron will

Step out of the bright light
Dance with me in the sweet night
I’ll give you what you’re after
I’ll fulfill all your dreams

He treated her well ’til the money ran out
That’s when she learned
what the streets are about
Now she’s waltzing with strange men
in shadows of the night
You’ll never see her
where the street lights are bright
Her words are simple.  It’s simple words that kill
They pull like a magnet on your iron will

Step out of the bright light
Dance with me in the sweet night
I’ll give you what you’re after
I’ll fulfill all your dreams

6. Smilin’ Inside

JB Braden

Do I look blue? Maybe I’m not cryin’
Do I look sad?  It’s no alibi
That I don’t worry, don’t you know
Maybe I’m smilin’ inside

My happiness don’t take too much tryin’
When I seem so far away just remember why
If I don’t always let it show
Maybe I’m smilin’ inside

Just like a choo choo train doesn’t always whistle
Mockin’ bird in an oak tree
doesn’t always sing, sing, sing
I’m a thoughtful one,
if I don’t roll on the floor all the time
Maybe I’m smilin’ inside

Do I look blue?  You know I might be grinnin’
Do I look sad? You better look again
Cause I don’t worry, don’t ya know
Maybe I’m smilin’ inside

Just like a choo choo train doesn’t always whistle
Mockin’ bird in an oak tree
doesn’t always sing, sing, sing
I’m a thoughtful one,
if I don’t roll on the floor all the time
Maybe I’m smilin’ inside

Do I look blue?  You know I might not be grinnin’
Do I look sad?  Well ya better look again
Cuz I don’t worry, don’t you know
Maybe I’m smilin’ inside
Maybe I’m smilin’ inside
Maybe I’m smilin’ inside

7. My Mind is Dirty

JB Braden

I see the sun, I see the moon
But I can’t get to them like I can’t get to you
Why do you treat me so mean
Mmmmm honey, my mind is dirty
but my hands are clean

I’d like to get right next to you
I’m tired of thinkin’ about it, now I wanna do
When will the light turn green
Ooh baby, my mind is dirty
but my hands are clean

My mind is dirty but my hands are clean
Got some big hair, you can make me scream
You don’t think I can be true
At least at night I’ll be true to you

In all the world I’ve never found
Someone I’d rather put my arms around
Mmm honey, I ain’t as bad as I seem
Ooh baby, my mind is dirty
but my hands are clean

My mind is dirty but my hands are clean
I got some big hair, you can make me scream
You don’t think I can be true
At least at night I’ll be true to you

In all the world I’ve never found
Someone I’d rather put my arms around
Hey baby, I ain’t as bad as I seem
Mmm honey, my mind is dirty
but my hands are clean
Mmm baby, my mind is dirty
Ooh honey, my mind is dirty
but my hands are clean

8. Don’t Tell Me Lies

JB Braden

She turned to look, I saw you smile
Tell me why, tell me why
Are you doin’ wrong? Have you been sneakin’?
Tell the truth, don’t tell me lies

You’re on the phone again tonight
Talkin’ low so I don’t know
If you will, if you will
Tell the truth, don’t tell me lies

Oh tell the truth, don’t tell me lies
Turn around, Let me see your eyes
Have you got secrets? My my my
Tell the truth, don’t tell me lies

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


Say what you want me to do
You make me crazy, is it true
Are you doin’ wrong?  Have you been sneakin’?
Tell the truth, don’t tell me lies

You say you’re just teasin’ me
That kind of teasin’ it just worries me
Play me straight, do me right
Tell the truth, don’t tell me lies

Oh tell the truth, don’t tell me lies
Turn around, let me see your eyes
Have you got secrets? My my
Tell the truth, don’t tell me lies
Don’t tell me lies

9. Ships

JB Braden

Would you tell me you love me again
It melts my heart
Would you tell me again and again
True love never dies

Ships go out, sail to sea
Some return, and some are lost as I would be
Lost as I would be, lost as I would be
Just as I would be without your love

If you tell me you love me again
I would sing for you
Only love songs forever and then
Just say good-bye

Ships go out, sail to sea
Some return, and some are lost as I would be
Lost as I would be, lost as I would be
Just as I would be without your love

10. In the Nest Our Heart

(Have Come to Know)

Glyn Alen

When we all get together in the nest our hearts
have come to know for so long
But our minds cannot find the pathway
o’er the migration time
We reach out for that short stretch of life
That we have such a need to control
ln the breath of eternity
where we search for a kindred soul

Am I so alone dear God
That I cannot imagine you
Or the colors of auras that blend and turn
in the sea so blue
The depth of my heart is recalling
It is just beginning to bloom
Where my tears touch a shoreline the quake
and shadow forgiving consumes

In a moment of passion
the threads on your dress leave me naked
While the loom in the distance
It sings like a harp in the breeze
If these words were the heartbeats of lovers
Or the peace that surrender may bring
I would unfold my arms before you and sing,
I would sing

Ah, but the patience confounds me
And I know the circles that spin from within
Uncertainty swallows confusion,
unfamiliar begins
In the courtyard created by doubt
That it all could happen again
When we all get together in the nest of
our hearts that lies sleeping within
When we all get together in the nest of
our hearts that lies sleeping within
