Smiling While I Sleep

Written By: Joseph Moore/Mark Vikingstad

Smiling While I Sleep
Joseph Moore & Mark Vikingstad

VERSE
I woke up this morning and my cheeks were feeling sore
I climbed down from my cloud and placed my two feet on the floor
I walked to the mirror to see what happened to my face
I guess you’re the reason why this smile has been permanently placed

CHORUS
It’s you—ooh ooh
That I’m seeing
It’s you---ooh ooh
While I’m dreaming
You’re the one I’m thinking of,
And I can’t seem to get enough
And it’s you, I’m seeing in my dreams
That’s why I’m smiling while I sleep.

VERSE
When I left my house to see you, my heart was skipping beats
that feeling was transferred into the movement of my feet
‘Cause I skipped, I jumped, I even danced to the place where we would meet
Like a giddy little school girl playing hopscotch on the street,

CHORUS
It’s you—ooh ooh
That I’m seeing
It’s you---ooh ooh
While I’m dreaming
You’re the one I’m thinking of
And I can’t seem to get enough
And it’s you I’m seeing in my dreams
That’s why I’m smiling while I sleep.

VERSE
After an evening that could send me to the moon,
You topped it with a goodnight kiss, wish I didn’t have to leave so soon,
I float--ed home, and I brushed my pearlie whites
I know that you will see them when you dream of me tonight

CHORUS
It’s you—ooh ooh
That I’m seeing
It’s you---ooh ooh
While I’m dreaming
You’re the one I’m thinking of
And I can’t seem to get enough
It’s you I’m seeing in my dreams
Oh yeah, it’s you I’m seeing in my dreams,
That’s why I’m smiling while I sleep.

Old Photograph

Old Photograph
Joseph Moore & Mike Hinckley

VERSE
Some days I feel like an old photograph
My colors are faded, and I'm frozen in the past
I feel taken out of the book, and lost in the stack
Hidden from the memories that you meant to last.

CHORUS
And ten years later, everyone in my life knows,
It's the first secret shared when someone new gets close,
Bout how I'll never find another lover like you, but I still pray and hope
I know that you treated me bad, but you're better than most

VERSE
Some days I feel like our old song,
The melody is sweet, but always plays too long,
And I don't know if I love you more, now or then,
So I press rewind and play it all back again.

CHORUS
And ten years later, everyone in my life knows,
It's the first secret shared when someone new gets close,
Bout how I'll never find another lover like you, but I still pray and hope
I know that you treated me bad, but you're better than most

BRIDGE
And I've heard my picture's been replaced,
and you sing a different tune,
But all that can't erase, the thoughts I have of you

VERSE
Some days my hearts like a hollow drum
the beat goes on but the show's already done
I'm center stage with the spotlight on me, but I am not the one
The star has flown and the curtain's already drawn

CHORUS
And now it’s ten years later, and everyone in my life knows,
It's the first secret shared when someone new gets close,
Bout how I used to make you feel alive, and now I'm just your ghost
I know that you treated me bad, but you're better than most
