Shall I tell you a story
A story of a poor little boy
A little boy who met a little girl with a thousand smiles
He named each one of her smiles
He filled his room with her pictures
When she left there was nothing left but thousand smiles

He held her tightly the last minute before goodbye
This is what he whispered

"There's nothing I will forget
nothing I won't forgive
I never thought I'd come to this
Can't you see
Nothing I can regret
Nothing I won't miss
but I can hide it for now
'cause you gave me a thousand ways to smile"

It occurred a dozen years latter
The next day was his 23rd birthday
His idle life ended up in shooting a girl
He cursed his whole lost life
in a tiny concrete cage
He looked around and found there's nothing left in his hands

He held himself tightly the last minute before goodbye
This is what he whispered

"There's nothing I will forget
nothing I won't forgive
I never thought I'd come to this
Can't you see
Nothing I can regret
Nothing I won't miss
but I can hide it for now
'cause you gave me a thousand ways to smile"

He held himself tightly in front of the gallows
This is what he whispered

"Nothing I will forget
nothing I won't forgive
I never thought I'd come to this
Can't you see
Nothing I can regret
Nothing I won't miss
but I can hide it for now
'cause you gave me a thousand ways to smile"
Nothing I will forget
nothing I won't forgive
I never thought I'd come to this
Can't you see
Nothing I can regret
Nothing I won't miss
but I can hide it for now
'cause you gave me a thousand ways to smile
so I'm alright"
