ON THE SURFACE (Rosanne Cash / Jimmy Tittle) Rosanne Cash (with Rodney Crowell) - 1990 On the surface everything seems right No one notices the dimness of the light For the world outside our door our smiles are oh, so bright On the surface everything's all right We have the grace of actors on the stage We orchestrate the moves that complement the play But the things that we believe in, we just throw them away But on the surface everything's okay We say goodnight and then we close our eyes To drift in different worlds far from each other's sight Dreaming of yesterday when we held each other tight And on the surface everything's all right What are you thinking tonight I don't know you (I don't know you) My words disappear in the night And there's no one there to notice Maybe our lives will never be the same We can face tomorrow if we can just get through today I'm holding back the tears while you're pushing me away But on the surface everything's okay Yeah, on the surface everything's okay (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2013)
