Smile when our 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 pain and sorrow, smile and maybe tomorrow you'll find that life is still worthwhile ?
If you just smile ?
Light up your face with gladness, hide every trace of sadness ?
That the time you must keep on trying ?
Smile, what's the use of crying ?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile if you just smile ?
You must keep on trying, smile, what's the use of crying, you'll find that life is still worthwhile ?
If you just smile ?
