When the wind is blowing in your face
Sometimes in life you don't see straight
Pray to him
He will show

When your head is in a certain place
Nobody around to make you safe
Stand strong and you will grow

Wait till you see my smile
Wait till they see your smile

Don't they love to see you down
Kick you while you're on the ground
Don't let emotions show

People always speculate
Don't let it get in your way
See they say things they don't know
Wait till you see my smile
Wait till they see your smile

Hey
So you're doin' better now
Everybody comes around
But you don't really need em'
Cause you're stronger and you're better and you're ready for whatever
Sing

Wait till you see my smile
Wait till they see your smile
Wait till you see my smile
Wait till they see your smile

    I think it means that if people are constantly bring you down and no one appreciates you then you should wait for your time to shine and then they will see your smile.

    It means that you always have to put your face up, no matter what people say or think about you, you always have to be stronger than them, and you have to show it with a big smile on your face.
