"A question that's cornered,
The edge of smile."


EDGE OF A SMILE - Kurt Chaboyer

They say that I'm lonesome, the verdict is true,
The motive unknown is you.
They whisper a wreck should lay by the sea,
Not drift on the wind down the street.

Say it's a secret, it ain't a lie,
A question that's cornered,
In the edge of a smile.

All the king's horses and all the king's men,
The tall lonesome pines and the moon.
"I Fall to Pieces" - I sing it to them,
Saving them all for who.

You can't measure lonesome, to try is to lose,
It's set like a table for two.
