about

A song about trivializing ones emotional state through futile directives from the Disposition album Requiem For The Living.

lyrics

Smile by Lynn Gentry

Smile
The sun is showing up
We’re all done throwing up
The favors in your cup
Smile
We’ll be credible soon
Tomorrow will be June
Stop crying in the moon

Be happy
I know the sky is falling
I know that she’s not calling
It’s all suppose to be
Be happy just like me

Smile
Life’s sweet as syrup
Now Sarah’s staring up
Hoping that she might see
Smile
Hoping that she’ll be falling
Hoping that you’ll be calling
And you’ll sweep her off her feet

Be happy
Be happy just like me
I know the sky is falling
I know that she’s not calling
Be happy
Be happy
I know that time is ending
And don’t be condescending
It’s all suppose to be
Be happy just like me

Smile
Like joy will never end
Like she’s more than a friend
Like somehow this could be
Smile
Knowing the plot won’t twist
Knowing that pain exist
The end will not be this

Be happy
Be happy just like me
I know the sky is falling
I know that she’s not calling
Be happy
Be happy
I know that time is ending
And don’t be condescending
It’s all suppose to be
Be happy just like me
