This is a remake of a song I first posted a few years ago. Here's the original if you want to do the compare and contrast thing.

This is dedicated to all those whose smiles make my life so much brighter.

Lyrics
Your Sweet Sweet Smile
©2006 Joseph Gurner


Watching the rain through my window
Wishing this day would pass on by

Cold comfort eyes stare from my mirror
And I leave this empty home behind

Another day, another highway
taking me somewhere I’ve never been

Another night, no one beside me
The sound of the TV my only friend


Even though
you are so far away
Your sweet swetet smile stays with me

Even though I can’t
reach out and touch you face
I am warmed
by your sweet sweet smile


Empty echoes of my footsteps
Follow closely every day

I see myself go through the motions
Screaming inside to get away

I don’t know how long I’ve been here
I don’t think I’ll know when I am gone

But Thiinking of you cuts through my darkness
You are the light that leads me on

Even though
you are so far away
Your sweet swetet smile stays with me

Even though I can’t
reach out and touch you face
I am warmed
by your sweet sweet smile

I long to tell you how you make me feel
And how you’re with me in my dreams
But for now I travel this long dark road alone
But I’m thinking of your sweet sweet smile

Even though I can’t
reach out and touch you face
I am warmed
by your sweet sweet smile

I am warmed
by your sweet sweet smile

I am warmed
by your sweet sweet smile

This is a totally
cool song. The vocals are crisp and clear but the guitar and keyboard seem sort of muffled. It kills as it is but I'd love to hear you clean up the guitar some.

Really nice song!

that smile
the one we get from our kid, wife, friend etc..where the light goes on and crowds out some of lifes silly darkness makes it all worth it. Wonderfully warm vocal, and I love the little "genesis" like lines that carry through the song in the background.

Why wasn't I told?!
The email notification seems to have failed again!

Great to see you post here again Joseph. Cool song, great vocals, but maybe Mark is right on the "muffled" comment. I thought you might be going for the "let's start with a muffled music bed and morph it into a super clear Logic mix" vibe ;)

Your voice is sounding good here, and it's a good song.

Joe, I've been hoping that your absence from MJ may be the result of some positive stuff happening for you.

Great to have you back here.
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

Love this, Joe ...
What a sweet melody ... gorgeous stuff. Your voice sounds as good as I've ever heard it - clear and soaring and perfectly capturing the mood of the song. Amazed by those high notes! The harmonies are lush too. A definite favourite for me.

Nice vox and lyrics Joseph
Love the song, and you vocal is great. I think I agree with Mark's assessment on the Guit and keys, although the Bass is right there my friend. I'd love to hear this with the guit and keys cleaned up a bit and the added drama and dynamics that would add to it. But for sure the lyrics and you vox are great.

Thank you for stopping by my song. Nicely done song here yourself; can sure relate to the lyrics, and being Scot-Irish on my mom's side I like the sound of bagpipes.

Lovely song
introspective - pleasant - reminds me of late 60's early 70's - I don't know why I'm thinking 'Eagles' - hope that's okay. You have a very nice singing voice. : )

Lovely lyrics
The song grows better and better as it plays. Are they really bagpipes playing, sound great and they really fit, first bagpipes I've heard that I actually liked the sound of. Great vocal.
Cheers

drifty keyboard
Like the drifting keyboard sounds lilting over the rhythm. Very nice. Sounds quite Lou Reedish, which is not a bad thing by the way!! Cool.
