when you smile


when you smile

a heart is bound to leap

even when deception has kept it

sound asleep


when you smile

the image is for keeps

when you smile

someone might smile right back

and put you back on track


when you smile

you help someone ease their pain

when you smile

the world may smile with you

and keep you sane


when you smile

no one can lose

and no one is to blame


when you smile

the alternative is to choose

to be happy

and find that all in life

is still worthwhile

so as the song says

just smile.
