Stick Figure – “Smiles on Faces”

What puts a smile on your face?
Tell me the truth
What really makes you happy?
What makes you move?
Never giving up when life gets too hard
Right around the corner is a brand new start
Feels like we’re riding on a roller coaster
We getting so far, we not getting closer
Life is all about the up and down
Take your medicine, stop fooling around
Never take yourself too seriously
Laugh with the world, let live and be free
Why don’t more people try to take life slow?
Why is everyday so impossible?
When I speak my mind I tell no lies
Once upon a time I laughed so hard I cried
Doesn’t really matter at the end of the day
As long as you live your life and you feel happy
What don’t hold you down makes you strong
Come on everybody, won’t you sing this song.

Smiles on faces, we’re putting smiles on faces

It’s a long road and it’s taken me home
Been a long day, still got a ways to go
I don’t feel like we’re getting older,
I feel so alive but we’re that much closer
Keep pushing on when the times get tough
And even if the storm comes, the waves get rough
Our love is greater than the deep blue sea
What’s going around, it’s coming around, it’s following me
Ain’t it funny how things fall in place sometimes
Your shadow follows you when the sun don’t shine
Some people spend their whole life living in their head
And I say listen to your heart instead
Keep searching for a lifetime waiting for a sign
Something gives me hope that we’ll be alright
If all the girls in the world we’re living across the sea
What a wonderful swimmer, yes you know that I would be

In a world gone crazy, you’re smile has saved me
When everything changes, I know we’re gonna make it

Smiles on faces, we’re putting smiles on faces
