"Smile" as written by and Michael Frederick De Wolf Jarrod Douglas Montague....
Smile
Can't you see I am still me,
Anti-authority, same philosophy,
Enjoying life as much as I can I will.
Trying to create that contagious smile
With that passion that I long to succeed
In my ways days pass by I am not gonna sit here
No more no more no more
Won't you see you're not me
Why would you want to be
You're an individual on your own
Do what you want 'cause you want to

    General Commenti think the song is amazing and i think it has to do with alot of people today how they're always trying to be depressed when there are real depressed people out there-won't you see you're not me, why would you want to be- but he is and he wants the happy people to be happy and stop acting depressed whe the title comes from-smile

    General CommentI am a great taproot band, but i just noticed that if he is saying to be urself, which he is, then he is contradicting himself by saying "Trying to create that
    contagious smile", which he is refering to himself. so therefor he is saying that he wants people to pick up his contagious smile, which isnt being thereselfs.... HES A HYPACRIT! lol i still love u taproot!

    General CommentThe beginning of the chorus is one of the best lyrics in any song I've ever heard. Trying to create a contagious smile...Thoreau said that altering the state of the day was the greatest art...I guess Taproot's angrifying that statement into this song. :)
