Smile Lyrics

Smile, the worst is yet to come
We'll be lucky if we ever see the sun
Got nowhere to go, we could be here for a while
But the future is forgiven, so smile

We're trying so hard to get it all right
But only feel lonely at the end of the night
I wanna be somewhere away from this place
Yeah, somewhere just a little closer to grace

I'll smile, the worst is yet to come
We'll be lucky if we ever see the sun
Got nowhere to go, we could be here for a while
But the future is forgiven, so smile
Smile

Well, call me loser, call me thief
Tell me I'm special when you spit at me
'Cause I don't wanna be lonely, I wanna be loved
And I want you to hold me like I'm the only one

I'll smile, the worst is yet to come
We'll be lucky if we ever see the sun
Got nowhere to go, we could be here for a while
But the future is forgiven, so smile
Smile

And time will eventually knock on my door
And tell me I'm not needed around anymore
But he'll hold me so close at the end of the day
When I'm quiet I can nearly hear him say

Smile, the worst is yet to come
We'll be lucky if we ever see the sun
Got nowhere to turn, and we've got nothing but time
But the future is forever, the future is forever
So smile, so smile, so smile

Smile, the worst is yet to come
We'll be lucky if we ever see the sun

Smile Meanings

The verse deals with accepting that things can always become worse so, regardless of whether or not the singer will ever see something better in the future, enjoy the good parts of being here and now.

I think this song is about chasing happiness and making things worse in the process. He's reflecting on looking for happiness in the wrong place and lonely unfulfilling path it lead him down. Or at least that's my opinion.

Rarely do we ever know exactly what's happening in people's lives when they're writing. But spiritually, this song speaks to me about how we get caught up in the social madness of society but we can SMILE when we realize that our future is already planned for us if we're believers in God & what the bible says. "OUR FUTURE IS FOREVER. SO SMILE." Future on earth in unknown and is like a roller coaster.

You are the saddest thing i have ever read...go down to the store and pick up a great big gallon of drain cleaner and just chug the fucking shit down

I feel like this song is saying be how you are do what you want to do and live life like there is no tommorow........ Be your self

I think it's about living and not caring about the people who drag you. Like the quote "the best thing in life is to love and be loved" and in the music video it showed a couple and how they were so much in love and they nearly lost there lives in a car accident. So make the most of your day and love every moment as if you would not be here tomorrow.

For me the song is about living the now, enjoy the now, smile, because even things being bad they can worsen, but the future is forgiven... And one day we all die, so we have to enjoy the most we can.

Can't quite decide if this is an optimistic song or not; Evoking us to smile, but for what reason? Because we get to witness all the beauty that surrounds us, or because this is the step before it'll all get worse? A catchy chorus with a mellow guitar riff, might be just enough to get people smiling though, which from that point of view, aim is achieved.
