Smile

(Wrote in 2006.)

I’m always the one feeling blue
It felt like no one else had a single clue 
But you could
You could always tell 
How I was feeling 
I tried so hard to hide and hold back the tears
Before I even spoke 
You would pull me in close 
Assuring me that everything was going to be alright 
I’m sorry that’ll take some time 
For these broken wings of mine
To eventually learn how to fly 

I want to let you know that I love you
And I don't want to ever miss your smiling face 
Yearning to stay forever 
Here within your embrace 
Even if we are far apart
I’ll be waiting
Because you're the only that can reach the depths of my heart 

These bitter sweet moments we shared
Felt like they have lasted for so long
So I wrote this song 
To express that I don’t know what I would do
What would I do
If you weren't around 
Because you're the only one who turns my frown upside down 

I want to let you know that I love you
And I don't want to ever miss your smiling face 
Yearning to stay forever 
Here within your embrace 
Even if we are far apart
I’ll be waiting
Because you’re the only that can reach the depths of my heart 

When there’s something always going wrong
I felt too weak to keep going on 
You would smile 
Simply tell me to follow 
And take my hand and pulled me along
Thinking maybe you and I belong 
Together this way 
Always by each other side 

I want to let you know that I love you
And I don’t want to ever miss your smiling face 
Yearning to stay forever 
Here within your embrace 
Even if we are far apart
I’ll be waiting
Because you’re the only that can reach the depths of my heart
