Smile in spite of everything… Song 318

The spirit if willing… but damn, my fingers hurt. It’s hard to record a song like this while not using your pinkie. But, ya gotta do what ya gotta do. If you smile, despite everything, you can still win. No matter what. You’ll always have to take a stand, always have to fight to be happy. This world will try to kick you in the teeth every chance it gets. Don’t let that stop you from smiling.

Song 318: “Smile”

Wear the pieces down until they fit in place
Chase away the blues that hold you back
Breathe in, Breathe out

Pull on the thread and unravel
Smile in spite of this world

We have to stand, we have to fight
If you ever want to be happy

Count out the time until they fade away
Chase after what you know to be true
Breathe in, breathe out

Pull down the walls and attack
Smile in spite of the rules

We have to stand, we have to fight
If you ever want to be happy

One by one break it down
Smile in spite of everything

We have to stand, we have to fight
If you ever want to be happy
