I’ll Always Remember Your Smile Today

One of my favorite bands in college was an alt-country band before the moniker became too heavily trafficked. The lead singer evokes Patty Cline, a singer to whom my late Maw-maw (RIP–2017) introduced me. I wrote about them years ago, but I am feeling this one song today; this is from the album Gentle Creatures. If only this band had gotten the chance it deserved….

Let us make a pact to keep their music alive.


Tell me it’s not so, tell me a lie,
Say you won’t go, say you won’t say goodbye.
Tell me forever and that times they don’t change.
Say you’re not leaving and that you’ll always feel the same.
One smile for the last time, one smile for today,
One smile that the darkness has taken away,
But your smile’s just a memory that won’t go away,
And I’ll always remember your smile today,
And I’ll always remember your smile for today.
