Trusted With A Smile

(Lyrics for the song Emmanuel)
A collaboration with Becca Lucas

You said I could trust you with my smile,
but I should have asked to trust you with my tears.
You pulled me close yet you knew all the while
you couldn't keep and guard all my hopes and fears.
You wanted me on your lonely and gray days,
so you could run with me and laugh and joke and play,
but when the hard times came and I felt oh so sad,
you didn't try to understand, you didn't want to stay.

Love means to stand together strong
wrapped in the warmth we thought would be there all along,
but then I turned and reached and you had gone away
and crushed my world of trust forever on that day.

How can I ever - ever love again,
now that my smiles are gone to stay.


It's an honor Becca!
