"Smile" as written by Shanice Wilson and Kenneth B Edmonds....
Sing it la la la la

Sometimes I sit at home
By the phone hoping he might call me
But he don't call me
But then I realize
Dreams come true aren't for girls like me
Not like me
And so I go around with my head up
Like it ain't no thing
And when the boys around with all my friends
I'm into other things
Because you never let them see you sweat
Don't want them to think the pain runs deep
Lord knows it's killing me

So I put on my make-up
Put a smile on my face
And if anyone asks me
Everything is okay
I'm laughing cause no one
Knows the joke is on me
Cause I'm dying inside
With my pride and a smile
On my face
On my face

It's not an easy (thing)
Sometimes it's hard to (face the truth)
It's not the life that I would choose (that I would choose)
But what else can I do?
If he don't love me
If he don't want me
I'm not about to sit around
Let myself go

So I put on my make-up
Put a smile on my face
And if anyone asks me
Everything is okay
I'm laughing cause no one
Knows the joke is on me
Cause I'm dying inside
With my pride and a smile
On my face
On my face

Sing it la la la la

    General Comment(Gosh, this song certainly hits home for me)
    It is about another relationship broken and pride not allowing you to show how much the rejection really hurts. Even though she refuses to express her pain, one strong and hopeful quality is that she is "not about to sit around, let [herself] go". All in all, it really is hard to be hopeful about love when you've experienced rejection(s).... yep, love is never easy.
