LEON RUSSELL lyrics - She Smiles Like A River

LEON RUSSELL
"She Smiles Like A River"

Well she smiles just like a river
Rolling softly to the sea.
When she blows away my problems
She helps to take, take a little weight off me.

When she's happy, I'm in heaven.
If she's down, she'll never say.
'Cause she knows I'm treading water.
Guess she feels I'm better off that way.

But when sadness overcomes me; I'm blinded by the night,
She takes my hand and leads me to the light.
And she wisphers in the morning; she knows the words to say
To keep me looking forward to the new day.

So I try just to be her lover
And I hope she understands
When I hurt her or make her crazy
That I'm just an ordinary man.

Yeah she smiles just like a river
Flowing softly to the sea.
When she blows away my problems
She helps to take a little weight off me.
