"Smile" as written by and August Cinjun/tate Tate....
I may not smile
As you turn and walk away
My heart just falls
On every word you say
I will not fight
'Cause you will not listen
And thought I never
Led my troops to war
And though I never
Learned what my life was for
And all I ever got was nothing
Cause you always said one day
You always said soon I'll do it
You always said now but waited
Now you've waited to long
Waited to long

I thought you were right
'Cause I knew I was wrong
Well you can cry if you want
Cry if you want
I will hang in myself
Myself

I will return
As a brilliant shining light
The things I've said
Will all be proven right
One ? one night
And you're whole life's wasted
And thought you never
Led your troops to war
And though you never
Learned what your life was for
And all I ever gave you was nothing
'Cause I always said one day
I always said soon I'll do it
I always said now but you waited
Now you've waited to long
Waited to long

Thought I was weak
But proved I was strong
Now you can cry if you want
Cry if you want
You can you hang in yourself
Yourself, yourself
You can cry if you want
I can cry if I want
We can cry if we want
Let's stop hangin' ourselves

    General Comment"and though i never led my troops to war"

    I really like this line

    I hate to say it but this song is about a break-up.

    General CommentIt goes beyond a break up song. It's about two people that are searching the depths of themselves to discover some meaning to existence and the struggle that entails. He is singing about his inability to fulfill his partners needs and by "hanging in himself" he can release the torment of trying to satisfy an insatiable person.
