I found a little pot
Took it in the kitchen
And filled it with some dirt
Planted a chrysanthemum
And you should've seen how it turned my mood to yellow
It turned my mood to yellow in a day

I read about a boy
Who suffered depression
His parents hung a mirror
Inside his bedroom
And they made him smile at it three times a day
'Til it took his depression away

And it goes to show that there's a natural way
Of healing what we're feeling inside
It goes to show that before we prescribe
We should first try a simple smile

So I drive out to the middle
Of nowhere, and I turn little
As I stare up at the stars in the sky
And these heavens erase any worries I face
If I look up once in a while

And it goes to show that there's a natural way
Of healing what we're feeling inside
It goes to show that before we prescribe
We should first try a simple smile
Give it a
Smile Smile Smile
Just a little
Smile Smile Smile

    General CommentThis song is simply about being depressed and facing it by not using drugs, but doing it the natural way. Depression is sometimes just all in our heads, and maybe if we just try to put on a smile, and look at the good things in life, rather than thr bad. Maybe, just maybe we can beat depression.

    Honestly, this song makes me cry sometimes. You can only get it off itunes or Amber Rubarth's cd, which is the rare homemade one she made by hand.(on her myspace)
