    I really love what he says in this song. "You just can't smile it away." simple yet perfect.

    Just an awesome song. I remember sometime in the early 90s, after a hard day at work I came home fell out sleep. I remember clearly a gush of wind came through my room window and woke my butt up, only to hear Mr Withers pelting this tune out of the radio. It woke me up and ever since I have loved this music all the way.

    I love this song. It might be my favorite one of Bill's--until I hear another one. Nice and easy for rainy day listening. Too bad we won't have a rainy day around here for god knows how long. Summer about to hammer us.
