Make Me Smile

(from "Ballet For A Girl In Buchanan")

Words & Music:

James Pankow (Chicago)


C#m      A           E                D#m  G#  [or G#sus4 to G#]

Children play in the park, they don't know.

I'm alone in the dark, even though.

C#m      B      E     A        D#m            G#sus4  G#

Time and time again I see your face smiling inside



E      D  A  E        D    A

I'm so happy that you love me.

Life is lovely when you're near me.

E       C#m            B        A

Tell me you will stay, make me smile.


Living life is just a game, so they say.

All the games we used to play fade away.

We may now enjoy the dreams we shared so long ago.


CHORUS:  [new words]

Oh, my darling, I got to have you.

Feel the magic when I hold you.

Cry sweet tears of joy, touch the sky.




CHORUS:  [new words]

Now I need you more than ever.

No more crying, we're together.

Tell me you will stay, make me smile.
