What Makes You...

When it's
When it's been
When it's been raining
All day
What do you see
When you look out the window
What do you see?

I don't know
What the world looks like
Because of your eyes
Being so different from mine
Are there even lines
To seperate colors from colors?
What does everything look like
From behind your iris'?

Whose face is the first
That you see when you
Whose face is the first
That you see before you
Whose face is the first
That you see in the
Whose face do you see in the morning?

Where are you
Where are you when you're
Where are you
Where are you when you're afraid?

(Chorus)
What makes you happy?
What brings a smile
What makes you cry?
What are the things you can't

What makes you happy?
What brings a smile
To your face
What makes you cry
What are the things you can't
What are the things that you can't stand.

I wouldn't know
What makes you happy
I wouldn't know
What makes you most happy
I wouldn't know
No, I wouldn't know

I wouldn't know
What makes you cry
I wouldn't know
I wouldn't know what makes you cry at night
No, I wouldn't know.

So I have to ask
I have to find some way
To get through to you
I have to ask
What makes you happy.


What makes you happy?
What brings a smile
What makes you cry?
What are the things you can't

What makes you happy?
What brings a smile
To your face
What makes you cry?
What are the things you can't
What are the things that you can't stand?

What does the world look like
Your eyes are so different
What does the world look like
To a person like you?

What do you see
When you look outside
What is it that
Coaxes a light into your eyes


What makes you happy?
What brings a smile
What makes you cry?
What are things you can't

What makes you happy?
What brings a smile
To your face
What are the things you can't
What are the things that you can't stand?

Cause I just want to know
'Cause there's no way I could know
Cause I just want to know
I want to know what makes you smile
So that I can

So that I can become it.
So that I can become what
What makes you smile?

So that I can become it!

Stroking your hair at midnight
And whispering what you need to hear
So that our shadows can merge
We can talk
Whatever you want to say
And words like stones
Fall from our mouth
And land quietly
Creating ripples throughout life
Making us remember
Implanting in us memories


What makes you happy?
What brings a smile
What makes you cry?
What are things you can't

What makes you happy
What brings a smile
To your face
What are things you can't
What are the things that you can't stand?
