I smile 😀

Versão original – Kirk Franklin ⬆
Versão do Sync3 ⬆

I dedicate this song to recession, depression and unemployment
This song’s for you

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
But where are my blue skies?
Where is the love and the joy
That you promised me?
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
Now

When I think how much better I’m gon’ be when this is over

I smile,
Even though I hurt, see, I smile
I know God is working so I smile
Even though I’ve been here for a while
What you do? I smile
Come on, smile
It’s so hard to look up when you’ve been down
Sure would hate to see you give up now
God’s people, you look so much better when you smile, so smile

Now every day ain’t gon’ be perfect,
But it still don’t mean today don’t have purpose
Come on

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

It ain’t easy, but today’s a new day
But tell me where are my blue skies
Where is that love yo?
Where is the love and the joy
That you promised me?
Tell me it’s alright

The truth is I almost gave up, but a power
That I can’t explain
The Holy Ghost power, yo
Fell from Heaven like a shower
Now

Now know we’ve been hurt you but still I smile,
Even though I hurt, see, I smile
I know God is working so I smile
Even though I’ve been here for a while
Still, I smile,
Hallelujah, smile
It’s so hard to look up when you’ve been down
Sure would hate to see you give up now
God’s people, you look so much better when you smile

Let’s go, smile for me
Can you just smile for me?
Whatever you’re in right now
Smile for me, smile
Can you just smile for me?

And my people say
You look so much better when you
You look so much better when you
You look so much better when you
You look so much better when you

I say you look so much better when you
And while you’re waiting
You look so much better when you
And while you’re praying
You look so much better when you
Look in the mirror
You look so much better when you
Always remember
You look so much better when you smile
Come on

I almost gave up, I almost gave up
But a power, that I can’t explain
But the Holy Ghost power, yo
Fell from Heaven like a shower
Came down from Heaven now
Hardships, difficulties
Right now
Tears storms this is what I do

I smile
Even though I hurt, see, I smile
What it feels good
I know God is working so I smile
All things are working
Even though I’ve been here for a while
Still I smile,
Smile, hallelujah
It’s so hard to look up when you’ve been down
I know it’s hard right now
Sure would hate to see you give up now
Because you’re a winner
You look so much better when you smile
You look better, so, smile

Dallas, you look so much better when you
New Orleans, you look so much better when you come one
Cleveland, you look so much better when you
Detroit, you look so much better when you
Philly, you look so much better when you
Jersey, you look so much better when you
L.A., you look so much better when you

All my people say you look so much better when you smile

See, I just don’t want you to be happy
‘Cause you gotta have something happening
I want you to have joy
‘Cause can’t nobody take that away from you
I see you smile

Música de Kirk Franklin, I smile, é uma Canção para a vida.

Kirk Franklin já inicia a música dedicando essa canção para caídos,
depressivos e desempregados. O compositor conta a dificuldade de enxergar luz diante dos problemas que vem enfrentando, mas que ele encontra a Luz, representada pela figura de Deus, o Deus que trabalha por ele quando está cansado e sobrecarregado e resta a ele sorrir.

“You look so much better when you smile so smile!”

“Você parece muito melhor quando você sorri! Então sorria!”. Aqui há um convite a colocar em prática o sorriso, independente da circunstância, mesmo sabendo que nem todos os dias serão perfeitos, mas que para tudo há um propósito.

Seguindo a letra, é possível perceber que o sorriso não é para disfarçar uma situação, mas sim te levar a ter esperança e fé que dias melhores virão… é a ideia de que um sorriso pode mudar seu modo de ver as coisas e pessoas ao seu redor… é o sorriso encorajador e que contamina.

Quantas vezes você estava mal e se deparou com um sorriso que te fez sorrir?

Um anúncio da Coca-Cola, inclusive, abordou sobre esse tema. Veja:

Uma outra marca, também seguiu essa ideia:

Penso que um sorriso é uma expressão de amor, portanto te convido a sorrir!

Que você encontre forças e coragem para seguir em frente! Enfrente! Sorria!
