Darlin, you're hiding in the closet once again. Start smiling...
I know you're trying, real hard not to turn your head away
Pretty darlin... Face tomorrow, tomorrow's not yesterday
Yesterday, oh oh

Chorus:
Pretty please, I know it's a drag
Wipe your eyes and put up your head
I wish you could be happy instead
There's nothing else I can do
Then love you the best I can

Darlin, I was there once a while I go...
I know, that it's hard to be stuck with people that you love when nobody trusts

Chorus:
Pretty please, I know it's a drag
Wipe your eyes and put up your head
I wish you could be happy instead
There's nothing else I can do
Then love you the best I can

Yeah-i-yeah, yeah yeah
That I can
Oh oh oh

Bridge:
You're not the only one who's been through
I've been there alone and now so are you
I just want you to know why you know it's not your fault
It's not your fault...

Oh, oh, you're fault, you're fault
It's not your fault
You're fault, You're fault, You're fault...

Chorus:

Pretty please, I know it's a drag
Wipe your eyes and put up your head
I wish you could be happy instead
There's nothing else I can do
Then love you the best I can

That I can... Oh oh oh

Darlin, you're hiding in the closet once again. Start smiling...

    I believe that this song is based on troubled teens. I think that avril is trying to get people to understand that it's okay to be scared or upset, it's normal. She is trying to tell you to keep your head up and face whatever the day brings, because no two days are the same, you should make the best of the time you have. Don't look back on the past because you might regret or get upset over something you did or didn't do. People go through the same things at different times of their lives such as the loss of somebody but you have to look to the future. Live life as it comes.
    Amazing pick me up song.

    I think this song was meant for all of the troubled kids/teens out there, and she's telling them that if you keep getting up everyday, things will eventually get better. I like this song because many people can relate to it and it's a very inspiring song. I think this is my favorite song in the album other than "push", making this song my second favorite. All in all, very nice songs in the album.

    That this shows that you love someone dearly but no one cares if they hate you and he is in love with you and you don't have muvh to give him but love and yourself that's the best thing to give them forever and ever and ever they will have that with them until you are done so that's all the meaning of love in this like it says I wish you could be happy insted there is nothing else I can do but love you insted.
