Stuck In My Ear: Night Ranger – The Color Of Your Smile

Stuck In My Ear: Night Ranger – The Color Of Your Smile

Solid 80s Rock / Pop. Hook laden and full of some lovely guitar histrionics, lovingly crafted to fit into that Rock / Pop mold. A perfect time capsule of 1987.

I saw this performed live and the guitars were much more prominent.

Note at about the 3:04 mark the graffiti that reads “Jack and Mollie” That would be bassist Jack Blades and his wife Mollie, still married 23 years later.

I can’t believe
That I survived til Friday
I grab my coat
And make a run for where I
Hide and dream and lie all afternoon

I call you up
Although you work on Sunday
I’m not accustomed to a lonely afternoon
Inside my room
Is it the same with you

It’s just the color of your smile
Oh, it’s the color of your smile
You know you knock my senses out
With the color of your smile

I love to see you
When you’re tired and worn out
It doesn’t matter if you paint by numbers
All your colors move like a lonely moon

And I’m aware
Of all the friends you’ve gone through
A situation that convinces me
I’m cool on price
But short on my nights with you

It’s just the color of your smile
Oh, it’s the color of your smile
You know you knock my senses out
With the color of your smile
The color of your smile
Oh, it’s the color of your smile
You know you knock my senses out
With the color of your smile

Not even talkin’ ’bout a new sensation
Not even sayin’ how I’ve been mistaken
Well, I’ll be here when you return from your holiday

Never had a tougher situation
Lot of trouble with your reputation
I think I’ll go and take a well deserved holiday
Oh yeah

I can’t believe that we survived til Friday
I’ll grab our coats
And make a run for where we
Hide and dream
And lie and scream
And hide and dream
All day

Oh, it’s the color of your smile
You know you knock my senses out
With the color of your smile
