(I Like It When You) Smile

Album: That Would Be Me (2015)
  • Smile, though your heart is aching,
    Smile, even though it's breaking,
    When there are clouds in the sky,
    You'll get by,
    If you smile, through your fear and sorrow
    Smile, and maybe tomorrow
    You'll see the sun come shining through
    For you

    Light up your face with gladness
    Hide every trace of sadness
    Although a tear may be ever so near
    That's the time you must keep on trying
    Smile, what's the use of crying
    You'll find that life is still worth while
    If you just smile

    Though your heart is aching
    Smile, even though it's breaking
    When there are clouds in the sky
    You'll get by,
    If you smile through your fear and sorrow
    Smile, and maybe tomorrow
    You'll find that life is still worth while
    If you just smile

    Light up your face with gladness
    Hide every trace of sadness
    Although a tear may be ever so near
    That's the time you must keep on trying
    Smile, what's the use of crying
    You'll find that life is still worth while
    If you just smile

    If you just smile
