SMILE WITH YOUR EYES CLOSED Illustration of smiling sun
Just like the sun
Yes, another day's begun
There's a mother waiting for you
Outside you'll play
But there's not a lot to say
If the other kids ignore you

    Smile with your eyes closed
    Just like the sun
    Hear with your head in the clouds
    You're still here laughing alone

Twice four is eight
Just a couple minutes late
Could a teacher be much crueler?
Three strikes you're out
Does it make you wanna shout
When they take you for a loser

You'll find your way
As your father used to say
Wh n he knew he couldn't fool you
Just like the sun
Levitating lazyone
There's nobody left to rule you

    Smile with your eyes closed
    Just like the sun
    Hear with your head in the clouds
    You're still here laughing alone

Light, sight - Each day I'm born 
Light, sight - Above the storm
Light, sight - I'm almost warm

    Smile with your eyes closed
    Just like the sun
    Hear with your head in the clouds
    You're still here laughing alone
