"Smile" as written by Jevon Lendrick Hill, Theron Makiel Thomas and Timothy Jamahli Thomas....
Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You'll get by

If you smile
With your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just

Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You'll get by

If you smile
Through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

    General CommentI love this song! When Jermaine sang this song at Michael's Memorial, it brought me to tears. I'm really sad Michael passed, but like the song says

    Smile, though your heart is aching
    Smile, even though it's breaking
    When there are clouds in the sky
    You'll get by...

    I love you Michael!!

    General CommentThis is the last track on MJ's HIStoy album, and for good reason. If you take every song on that album, peice together their meanings, you really do have MJ's story. The song itself is self explanitory, but all the better when you see the meaning clearly.
