When You Smile
The Flaming Lips Lyrics


Will you return
When you come down?
Will you return
When you come down?
Will you return
When you come down?
Will you return
When you come down?

Flower gun
Now you're on the run
Flower head
Now all your friends are dead
And their ghosts
Floating around your bed
Hear it said
Now all your friends are dead

Will you return
When you come down?
Will you return
When you come down?
Will you return
When you come down?

Shooting stars (shooting stars)
Crashing in your car (crashing in your car)
What went wrong (singing songs)
Now all your friends are gone (all your friends are gone)
And they scream (and they scream)
Scream from beyond (screaming from beyond)
Hear their song (hear their song)
Now all your friends are gone

Will you return?
Will you return?
Will you return?
Will you return?
Will you return?
Will you return?
Will you return
When you come down?
Will you return
When you come down?
Will you return
When you come down?
Will you return
When you come down?
Will you return
When you come down?
Will you return
When you come down?
Will you return
When you come down?

(Screaming from beyond)
(Screaming from beyond)
(Screaming from beyond)
(Screaming from beyond)

It's like I never had to see it in your eyes or feel it
I could tell when you smile
It's like I didn't need to say anything or do much
I could tell when you smile

All of the subatomic pieces come together
And unfold themselves in a second

Every single molecule is right
When all of the subatomic pieces come together
And unfold themselves in a second

Such an innovative and interesting approach to describing what it feels like to fall in love--just a great song, and Ronald Jones' sonic contributions to the arrangement cannot be overstated. . .

Brodie

Ronald can never be overstated. He added so much to the band. And, as sad as it was with him leaving, he made them become who they were meant to be by leaving.

Dethmobile

One of my favorite love songs from the Flaming Lips. Be My Head, Ashes in the Air and What is the Light are right up there, too. Cheers!

...It's all too wrong to make it right... The Cure Forever!!!!
