[Verse] 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?
[Hook #1] 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
[Verse] 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?
[Hook #2] 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
[Bridge] 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
[Hook #3] 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
