  • 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, 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

    (When I think how much better I'm gonna 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
    I smile, smile
    It's so hard to look up when you been down
    Sure would hate to see you give up now
    You look so much better when you smile, so smile

    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, tell me where are my blue skies
    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
    Fell from heaven like a shower now

    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
    I smile, smile
    It's so hard to look up when you been down
    Sure would hate to see you give up now
    You look so much better when you smile

    Smile for me
    Can you just smile for me
    Smile for me
    Can you just smile for me

    Oh oh oh you look so much better when you
    Oh oh oh you look so much better when you
    Oh oh oh you look so much better when you
    Oh oh oh you look so much better when you
    Oh oh oh you look so much better when you

    (And while your waiting)
    Oh oh oh you look so much better when you
    (And while your praying)
    Oh oh oh you look so much better when you
    (Look in the mirror)
    Oh oh oh you look so much better when you
    (Always remember)
    You look so much better when you smile, come on

    I almost gave up, but a power that I can't explain
    Fell from heaven like a shower now

    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
    I smile, smile
    It's so hard to look up when you been down
    Sure would hate to see you give up now
    You look so much better when you smile, so smile

    Oh oh oh you look so much better when you
    Oh oh oh you look so much better when you
    Oh oh oh you look so much better when you
    Oh oh oh you look so much better when you
    Oh oh oh you look so much better when you
    Oh oh oh you look so much better when you
    Oh oh oh you look so much better when you
    Oh oh oh you look so much better when you

    Smile

    See I just want don't you to be happy
    'Cause then you have to have something you haven't been
    I want you to have joy 'cause can't nobody
    Take that away from you
    I see you smile
