what did you do? what did you say?
did you walk – or did you run away?
where are you now? where have you been?
did you go alone – or did you bring a friend?
i need to know this – cause i notice when you’re smilin’
out in the sun havin’ fun and you’re feelin’ free
and i can tell you know how hard this life can be
but you keep on smilin’ for me
what went right? what went wrong?
was it the story – or was it the song?
was it overnight – or did it take you long?
was knowing your weakness what made you strong?
or all the above – oh how i love to see you smilin’
and oh yeah – take a little pain just in case
you need something warm to embrace
to help you put on a smilin’ face
hey, put on a smilin’ face
don’t you go off into the new day with any doubt
here’s a summary of somethin’ that you could smile about:
say for instance, my girlfriend she bugs me all the time
but the irony of it all is that she loves me all the time
i want to be you – whenever i see you smilin’
cause it’s easily one of the hardest things to do
your worries and fears become your friends
and they end up smilin’ at you
put on a smilin’ face
