Day 53: "Smile" by Charlie Chaplin

Ok, I realize that this week has been a week full of lyrics, but I can't mention the blog today without also mentioning that my friend Julie and I sang in the HFAC (the music and arts hub at BYU) today, and while we were there in the practice rooms she sang this song and I accompanied. It's one of my favorites anyway, and although it might sound sad, I am not. I actually find it very soothing.

Smile tho' your 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 fear and sorrow,
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through for you...
Light up your face with gladness,
Hide ev'ry trace of sadness--
Altho' a tear may be ever so near...
That's 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.
