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...

    This song game me inspiration. I have always liked avril lavigne's music but recently she has become a big part of my life. This song is nice, slow and meaningful. I love it. I am learning to play goodbye, black star, dal in, smile, wish you were here, when you're gone and everybody hurts in a mash up on the piano. X

    Avril wrote this song when she was 14. I'm guessing she was trying to write a song about moving on. Being happy. How she was trying to love herself as her. And everyone's been there are one time or another. There is nothing else she can do, but love you the best she can.. Her words say it all.

    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.
