Whats in a life
If you dont live it, baby
Its just getting on by
With a promise, what if, maybe

Hanging around
Waiting for something to fall
And once in a while
The paper smile must come a-way

Whats in a life
If you dont live it, baby

Whats in a kiss
If you cant feel it, baby
The lips maybe sweet
Are they sweet enough to contain it

Youre wasting your time
Hanging out of windows painting
And once in a while
The paper smile must come and go

And where it blows, who knows
And where it goes, it goes
Im glad to see it go
Im glad to see it go

Whats in a dream
If you cant be it, baby

Look away, your painted smile
Look away, your painted smile
Oh, wipe away your painted smile
Wipe away your painted smile

Look away, your painted smile
Oh, wipe away your painted smile
Painted smile, painted smile, painted smile
