...“Smile for The Camera” ~

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Smile for the camera...
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
But are you smiling inside, inside where the truth
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
The truth of your life, the truth, it can never hide, but
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Why; I know why you cry; but why, do you keep it inside?!?
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Why do you hide, this truth of your life, this
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Disguise that your eyes, they can never hide...
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Smile, smile for the camera ~
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
But let it out, release your pain, free your heart
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
This is your day; a brand new start!?
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Tell a loved one, tell a friend, tell... 
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
...As you breathe in the air ~
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Breathe, believe, believe, breathe; others as yourself
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Who truly care ~ Smile for the camera, or say your goodbyes
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Because you truly only get, one chance, one chance at this life...
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
If I said I love you, if I said you are loved
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Would you still, would you still say goodbye; why!?
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
When there's so much more ~ Hold on, hold on to your life ~
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Here, come on, smile, “Smile for The Camera”







* “Smile * Tis Another for Your Loving Heart * My Sweeet Dear John.” *
