Sappy acoustic ballad. Open D, fingerstyle, lots of harmonics, Neil Diamond-esque vocals.

"A Drink and a Smile"
by Matt Story, 2011

I see you standing there
And I know I really shouldn't care
It seems I never quite said goodbye
I told you there'd be a time
When he'd break your heart like you broke mine
But I still can't bear to see you cry
Won't you come inside

Don't want nothing from you tonight
Got a new girl now and she's alright
Just a drink and a smile, no soft music, no candlelight
I won't tease, I won't ask you to stay
I'll drive you home later, I know the way
I bet you've had your fill of love right now anyway

I always knew you'd come
I don't like you much but I still love you some
Let's just say it's for old times' sake
I guess I've got no disguise
Still can't stand to see red in those pretty blue eyes
It's still more than I can take
But baby don't mistake

Don't want nothing from you tonight
Got a new girl now and she's alright
Just a drink and a smile, no soft music, no candlelight
Don't tell me you've got somewhere to go
And I won't tell you I told you so
Just don't ask me why, 'cause baby I'll never know

It ain't like it used to be
But I still want you here with me
When you cry
I still want to save you

Don't want nothing from you tonight
Got a new girl now and she's alright
Just a drink and a smile, no soft music, no candlelight
No one knows and nobody would care
There's no one home to say you're not there
We both know you're better off here than almost anywhere
And I've got some time to spare
Death to Ovation haters!
