I dedicate this song to recession,
Depression and unemployment.
This song's for you.

Today's a new day, and there is no sunshine.
Nothing but clouds, and it's dark in my heart
And it feels like a cold night.
Today's a new day, where are my blue skies,
Where is the love and the joy that you promised me
You tell me it's alright.

(I'll be honest with you)
I almost gave up, but a power that I can't explain,
Fell from heaven like a shower.

(When I think how much better I'm gonna be when this is over)
I smile, even though I'm hurt see I smile,
I know God is working so I smile,
Even though I've been here for a while
I smile, smile...
It's so hard to look up when you look down.
?, hate to see it when you give up now
You look so much better when you smile, so smile.

Today's a new day, but there is no sunshine.
Nothing but clouds, and it's dark in my heart,
And it feels like a cold night.
Today's a new day, tell me where are my blue skies,
Where is the love and the joy that you promised me
You tell me it's alright.

(The truth is)
I almost gave up, but a power that I can't explain
Fell from heaven like a shower.

I smile, even though I'm hurt see I smile,
I know God is working so I smile,
Even though I've been here for a while
I smile, smile...
It's so hard to look up when you look down.
?, hate to see it when you give up now
You look so much better when you smile.

Smile... for me
Can you just smile... for me.
Smile... for me
Can you just smile... for me.

Ohohoh you look so much better when you
Ohohoh you look so much better when you
Ohohoh you look so much better when you
Ohohoh you look so much better when you
Ohohoh you look so much better when you
(And while your waiting)
Ohohoh you look so much better when you
(And while your praying)
Ohohoh you look so much better when you
(Look in the mirror)
Ohohoh you look so much better when you
(Always remember)
You look so much better when you smile

I almost gave up, but a power that I can't explain
Fell from heaven like a shower.

I smile, even though I'm hurt see I smile,
I know God is working so I smile,
Even though I've been here for a while
I smile, smile...
It's so hard to look up when you look down.
?, hate to see it when you give up now.
You look so much better when you smile.
So smile.

Ohohoh you look so much better when you
Ohohoh you look so much better when you
Ohohoh you look so much better when you
Ohohoh you look so much better when you
Ohohoh you look so much better when you
Ohohoh you look so much better when you
Ohohoh you look so much better when you
Ohohoh you look so much better when you
Smile...

I just want you to be happy...
I want you to have joy 'cause can't nobody
Take that away from you.
I see you... SMILE

    It tells me that god is in charge of everything in my life and my smile tells and shows the devil that i've got the victory and i know that the lord is in control.
