From the recording October Man

Lyrics

Every day I see you smiling up at me
Your face upon the cover of a shiny magazine
And sometimes when I’m clumsy you’re grinning up at me
Reminding me you love me
Smiling up at me

Remember when I met you?
You were seventeen
Twelve years down the line now and I
See you on the screen
But if they all think they own you,
That’s a thing they’ll never do
And every year I’ve known you makes us harder to undo

Some may see the cover girl with all the glitz and glory
But I can see the shadows that lurk inside the story
I see the sparkle in your eyes
The pain behind the smile
I see you like a daughter
I see you as a child

Every day I see you smiling up at me
Your face upon the cover of a shiny magazine
And the rare days that I see you are the best a day can be
But on the days I miss you
You’re always there, smiling up at me…
