Hope. Hope for things yet done.
Sight. Sight for things still to come.
These things you need, yes indeed my dear
But that's not all- Just smile, you're only there for a little while.
Bring. Bring yourself right to the edge.
Your past, is just that my darling don't go dredging up
Don't fill your cup with sorrow
There's still tomorrow- Just smile, you were only there for just a little while
Just sing! Just shout! Whistle til your lungs drop out.
Your lips will purse but you can't curse the world round you can't kill your mirth They'll smile... Even though they'll only listen for a little while.
Work hard! Go far! Don't think about whether love is cross starred. There's little you can do to stop the ticking clocks and worried knocks Please smile... You'll only miss her for a little while.
Open your eyes! Just realize! You're not the only one who ever cries.
We'll all find the way, through today, we'll make it home, breathe, hit the hay
Then smile... 'Cause we're here just a little while.
