Chorus: Why is that smile upon your face When it's such a rainy day Why are you so happy? What do you know that I don't know? I wish I did but ain't been told So tell me, what's your secret?
I met a girl the other day at the supermarket Ringing up all of my things She had the strangest look upon her face Wish you could have been there Just to see the way she looked at me Thought I must look crazy something out of place But paid it no attention Just kept going with my business I looked up because she stepped into my space Saw pain in her eyes Her question took me by surprise she said
I didn't have the faintest clue where to begin So I asked some questions (just to see what I was dealing with) She told me where she was and where it was she'd been What an awful tale life hadn't done her well She had thoughts of leaving
Bridge: (Before you go) let me tell my story (Once like you, you know) all guts and no glory (But now I have joy) the reason why Who's in my life That is why you're asking me
See the moral of the story is the whole world's watching you So be careful what you say and be careful what you do Never know when it will be your time to show someone the way So be a guiding light and shine so they'll say
