Smile, you'll steal away my soul
Smile, I'll hide away and cry
My mind's made up
I will shudder to see your eyes

Smile no doubt I'll keep my pride
But It may be hard to find
There's nothing left
Handed down your legacy

But more regret
Painted on with empathy
Smile, don't complicate my time
Smile don't ask me if I'm fine

My world blown down
There is nothing that words can say
Smile, no doubt I'll keep my pride
But it may be hard to find

There's nothing left
Handed down your legacy
But more regret
Painted on with empathy

There's nothing left, there's nothing left
Smile, you'll steal away my soul
Smile, I'll hide away and cry
There's nothing left

Handed down your legacy
Smile, you'll steal away my soul
Smile, I'll hide away and cry
There's nothing left

Handed down your legacy
Smile, no doubt I'll keep my pride
But it may be hard to find
If only you had tried

Going to leave it far behind
It may be hard to find
If only you had tried
Going to leave it far behind

    General CommentI love this song.
    It's so sad, even though it's called Smile. Hah.

    This really tugs on my heart-strings. It's like.. she's asking him to do anything but smile.
    Something's not right, so she's keeping her smile and leaving for some reason because she believes there's nothing left. But if she only sees him smile, then she knows she won't be able to leave anymore, he'll "steal away her soul" and she'll realise she's actually leaving.

    Just my take, when you put it into a 'relationship' point of view.. or my situation at that. Lol.

    General CommentHah. I destroy everything *will be ten comments here by the time I'm done*
    Oh well, I love it. It deserves lots.
    But for teh record, I meant "keeping her pride" not "keeping her smile".....
