"Smile" as written by and Norman George/love Blake....
Every silver lining has a cloud
And each piece of good fortune must be paid for by the pound
I've become so cynical these days,
I don't know how it started but it won't go away
See the lines around my eyes,
See the sarcasm in my smile,

You'd better smile
Smile
Cause that's all that you've got left,
Your life's a mess, you've been cut adrift

You'd better smile
I feel like a dalek inside,
Everything's gone grey but used to be so black and white
See the lines around my eyes,
See the sarcasm in my smile,

You'd better smile
Smile
I've become so cynical these days,
I don't know how it started but it won't go away
You'd better smile
Cause that's all that you've got left,
Your life's a mess, you've been cut adrift

    General CommentIt's saying that everything has to be paid back, every good thing has something bad in it. It's saying the only thing left is to smile because inside it's all messed up, it's all gone together, nothing's what it was, you're dead inside, like a robot, you're seperated from the world, you're completely alone, so smile! It'll make it all go away, it's all you've got left!
