Simply Smile…

July 31st, 2011

The song Smile is one of my favorites and its message is simple yet powerful. Written by Charlie Chaplin, the song speaks for itself so there is no need for me to further elaborate on it. Personally, I look to the essence of the song whenever I am facing a tough time. The basic notion to smile no matter what I am faced with helps me get through it easier. Laughter and humour has always been my coping mechanism for dealing with any issues. I wanted to post the lyrics and song in hopes that it can help you all too.

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.

_ Smile – Charlie Chaplin

    I love that song, heard through the grapevines that it was Micheal Jackson’s favorite song too! If I am not mistaken it was featured in the movie Modern Times, really poignant movie and very soul searching! All in all great song and movie and Blog!Smile Paully, SMILE :)

    One of my guilty pleasure songs is :
    Free Fallin’ by Tom Petty. It’s a really fun song to belt out at the top of your lungs a la Tom Cruise. Instant stress relief. Try it.
