My song

Just Smile

You get all the praise
all because I was finding myself
Learning who I really am

You took away my identity
Only for a while
You try to take my pride, my hope
Oh, how I just smile

Trying to connect the dots and see what is really happening
away from you it is so much easier to do
I see things how they really are
and the problem is not me, it's you

So try to turn things around on me
Go ahead and try
I'm not the one who has problems looking at myself in the mirror
I'm not the one who is going to cry

Hopefully you realize who you are
You see what you do to not only me, but everyone else
and you find a gift that most don't have and never find
the ability to know and love yourself

Maybe you will overcome what has trapped you
Making you believe that you have to do the things that you do
and tell yourself that you are better than everyone else
when you and I both know that's not true

So now moving on to someone else
I see so much clearer
I know myself, I love myself
Oh, how I just smile!
