about

Don't Tell Women to Smile

lyrics

Was walking down the street today
just trying to get somewhere
I wanted to be on my way
without their piercing stares
See, why should I look to the ground
just to avoid their eyes?
I never ask them how I look
or whether I should smile

It's time like this I wish I were invisible
and times like this I miss you
and want you to know

I don't want anyone, anyone but you darlin'
I am many things, but not a fool.
There's a lot of dust, floating around out there
I won't let it into my room.
You are everything I thought I'd never find
and they ain't got nothin on you
They're not interested in my heart or my mind
and they can't love me the way you do

I walked into a crowded room
The lights were dim and low
I tried to find someone I knew
but a stranger said hello
He said "where you going beautiful?
you should come with me."
I rolled my eyes, he called me "bitch"'
it's the same Goddamn routine

It's time like this I wish I were invisible
and times like this I miss you
and want you to know

I don't want anyone, anyone but you darlin'
I am many things, but not a fool.
There's a lot of dust, floating around out there
I won't let it into my room.
You are everything I thought I'd never find
and they ain't got nothin on you
They're not interested in my heart or my mind
and they can't love me the way you do

When I walk alone
I know I may never get home
I must look over my shoulder
everywhere I go
I don't want their compliments
for some would do me harm
I depend on no one
but there's refuge in your arms

I don't want anyone, anyone but you darlin'
I am many things, but not a fool.
There's a lot of dust, floating around out there
I won't let it into my room.
You are everything I thought I'd never find
and they ain't got nothin on you
They're not interested in my heart or my mind
and they can't love me the way you do
