Clark, Terri - Smile Lyrics




She packed my lunch up in a box for my first day of school
I said I wish you could go with me today
She said you’re gonna be alright just like I promised you
Just remember any time you feel afraid

I want you to smile
And know you’re not alone
Dry those little eyes
I’ll be here when you come home
I’m always in your heart
Even when we are apart
It’s only for a while
So I want you to smile

She packed my suitcase in the trunk when I turned 18
And drove me all the way to Tennessee
She said I know you’re gonna make it, I’ve got faith in you
And while you’re out there chasin’ down your dreams

I want you to smile
And know you’re not alone
Dry those little eyes
I’ll be there when you come home
I’m always in your heart
Even when we are apart
It’s only for a while
So I want you to smile

She fought for three long years and didn’t wanna leave
No matter what they told her, she still believed
So she used the tools God gave her
But in the end they couldn’t save her
As I sat there by her bed watchin’ her sleep
She must have heard a tear roll down my cheek
That’s when she said to me

I want you to smile
And know you’re not alone
Dry those little eyes
I’ll be there when you come home
I’m always in your heart
Even when we are apart
It’s only for a while
So I want you to smile

  7. Mary Hoffman

    I just shared this on my facebook page for my sister.  She is one of the biggest Terri Clark fans I know (we were at a concert a long time ago in PA, some fair, it was pour rain, and my sister all but threw me to the ground to get up front to high five Terri Clark - which she did - and was so happy!  Hell, I was so happy for her, even though I wanted to punch her for pushing/punching me so hard to get me out of the way) anyway, my Mom died of cancer, and both my sister and I struggle with the pain of it to this day (and it has been over 25 years).  Losing a mom, especially when your the daughter is so hard.  Thank you Terri for sharing this part of your life with us!  XO

    Saw you singing this song last night at Borderline in London - and you reduced me to tears with this song. Says it all xx For all of us who have lost their mum - this is a beautiful song xxx

  19. leonticonderoga2

    Nice song. Good message.

    Rachael Collins

    leonticonderoga2 ~ Perfect message, for me I had to change the first two smiles. And put in Fly.
    The last smile...that's unchangeable.
    I figure most parents only want the best in life for their kids.
    Sometimes, when you hurt, smile is not going to happen. Then I have to turn my focus on something I can DO.
