“A Smile That Ain’t Ready To Love”

(VCVCVC) Capo 5

VERSE 1 (D, C, G)

Caught in the glow of the fire

Consumed by the heart of desire

Hadn’t seen her here before

Left wanting to know more

PRE-CHORUS (A, E, G)

But I saw a little hint of pain in that smile, and it looked like it had been there for a while

CHORUS (D, C, G)

As the guitar strings were strumming, my heart started running, smack dab into hers

She turned back to the music, I felt like I could use it, but would she call my bluff

As the chords kept ringing, I stopped singing, and asked what she prefers

- (A, C) And just when I thought I’d done enough

- (D, C, G) I found a smile that ain’t ready to love

VERSE 2 (D, C, G)

Trust wasn’t a friend to her

A pot I didn’t want to stir

But a fire has a way

To make a person say

PRE-CHORUS (A, E, G)

A bit about that hint of pain in a smile, even if its been there for a while


REPEAT CHORUS

VERSE 3 (D, C, G)

A hurt that didn’t pair

Became a girl who didn’t care

Chained by the fear

Just couldn’t bring her near

PRE-CHORUS (A, E, G)

And I saw a little more pain in that smile, didn’t look like it would go anywhere for a while


REPEAT CHORUS
