Even though . . .
"Smile, though your heart is aching;
Smile, even though it's breaking.
When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by.
If you smile through your fear and sorrow,
Smile, and maybe tomorrow,
You'll see the sun come shining through for you."
Smile recorded by Nat King Cole (1954)
Music by Charlie Chaplin, from film "Modern Times" (1936)
Lyrics by John Turner/Geoffrey Parsons
From The [not so] Daily Nocturne
