  • Show some emotion
    Put expression in your eyes
    Light up
    If you're feeling happy
    But if it's bad
    Then let those ears roll down

    Some people hurting
    Someone choking up inside
    Some poor souls dying
    Too proud to say
    They got no place to lie
    And there's people
    If they hear a joke
    Can't keep the laugh
    Out of their eye

    I said
    Show some emotion
    Put expression in your eyes
    Light up
    If you're feeling happy
    But if it's bad
    Then let those tears roll down

    Some people in love
    But all they got's a photography
    How can they get it
    Too scared
    To open their mouth
    To ask

    I said
    Show some emotion
    Put expression in your eyes
    Light up
    If you're feeling happy
    But if it's bad
    Then let those tears roll down

    Come on try
    Learn to bleed
    When you get a bad fall
    Light up
    Light up
    Light up
    If it's nice
    But if it's bad
    Then let those tears roll down Writer/s: JOAN ANITA BARBARA ARMATRADING
