Overheard at The White House

R&B and soul singer William “Smokey” Robinson, who recently visited the White House, was later interviewed on National Public Radio about his writing process. He said “there are no new words. No new chords. Maybe even no new ideas. I just want to say ‘I love you’ in a way it’s never been said before.”

Then NPR played one of his most famous song lyrics . .

“Take a good look at my face.
You see my smile seems out of place.
Look closely, it’s easy to trace
the tracks of my tears.”
