Touching

I watched Uptown Girls on Star Movies for the first time the other night. I like Brittany Murphy because she has no qualms acting goofy and looking silly in lots of scenes (like in …. what was that other movie of hers with Ashton Kutcher?) and Dakota Fanning as always is a marvel to behold. That tiny lady sure knows how to act!

The story takes the viewer on a roller-coaster ride of emotions; there are funny moments and touching ones. The scenes that really made me cry were towards the end, when Molly found Rae in Coney Island and when Rae danced for Molly during her recital plus the business about the guitars. What aggravated the flood of tears were the lyrics of the accompaniment song. Such beautiful melody and heartfelt words. You should watch the movie, even if just the ending part to appreciate what I mean. Alright, alright, I am such a softie!

Below are the lyrics. Now, I’ve found a rival for the tearjerker Butterfly Kisses. And I think it could have been worse if I have a daughter of my own. In my total fascination, I got to download an mp3 of it from Limewire and found out that a lot of people already have this on their files. Definitely, a winner!

Molly Smiles
Artist: Jesse Spencer

Daddy's little girl paints the world with her magic wand
Daddy's little child breathes new life to the morning time for me
Though we're apart, her thoughts follow me
When I come home, Molly smiles with the dawn
Molly smiles, and she radiates the glow around her halo
When she plays, Molly smiles
On a summer day, Molly smiles
A new day, Molly smiles

Daddy's little girl ties a ribbon around my heart
Daddy's little child waves goodbye to the ocean tide that sweeps me
Though we're apart, she's a part of me

Molly smiles with the dawn
Molly smiles and she radiates the glow around her halo
When she plays, Molly smiles
On a summer day, Molly smiles
A new day, Molly smiles

When I come home, Molly smiles with the dawn
Molly smiles and she radiates the glow around her halo
When she plays, Molly smiles
On a summer day, Molly smiles
A new day, Molly smiles

When the days have gone grey,
Nothing's wrong when Molly smiles
