Country Lyrics "See You Smile"

I've had my ups and downs

Just like anybody else

But when I get to thinking

I only blame myself

I'd take back the pain I caused

To friends and family

I continue to make the changes

That start inside of me

I try to listen more

Try to be a better man

Spend time with my wife and kids

As much as I can

Give out a helping hand

To all those in need

Because in the end

It means so damn much to me


CHROUS

So I raise my head high

Take the frown off my face

I take a good look around

Everything fits in place

In all that you do

You make it all worthwhile

I get the most in life

When I see you smile


Its been a long journey

I've came a long way

Now here I stand

A better friend today

If I ever caused you pain

I sincerely apologize

Because I never meant to bring

Any tears to your eyes

I hope you know I've changed

I have so much more to prove

And I'll believe in you my dear

Believe in everything you do


CHORUS

So I raise my head up high

Take the frown off my face

I take a good look around

Everything fits in place

In all that you do

You make it all worthwhile

I get the most in life

When I see you smile

ABOUT THE SONG...

This song only has two verses. I never added a bridge to it, but I may later. This is a song that I wrote to my wife to show the appreciation I have for her. I want to make her happy and I literally get happiness from seeing a smile on her face. For those that don't really know me, I have went through a lot in life. I caused nearly all of the pain I felt by the choices that I made. I am living proof that anyone can change, no matter the situation you are in. Having faith in the Lord is a start.

Truth is, we all make mistakes and we all choose the wrong paths in life. Including myself, sometimes we choose many different wrong paths. It may take some time to find the right path again. When we make those mistakes, it is our responsibility to learn from them and correct them.

I was lucky to find a person that loves me truly. She is my strength and my reason in life. When you find meaning in your life, it gives you plenty to live for. My wife gave me meaning and over time, I learned that many things give us personal meaning, such as God, my children, family, and friends. Help one another when you can. We are all servants of the Lord. He loves us faithfully and he showed how much when he gave up his only son. That deep love is what brings joy and happiness. Thank you for reading my song and God Bless.

See you smile...what a great sentiment. Life brings so many challenges and it really is lovely to see a person smile. This is really good. My favorite line might be "I continue to make the changes That start inside of me"

I can see Kenny Chesney singing this too.

It is so good to have someone special in our lives who give it purpose and a reason to wake up each morning. To see a smile and know that it is just for you.

Voting up all the way

This really has a beautiful "ring" to it. You and your wife are very lucky. We have a saying in school -- turn that frown upside down . . . and of course, then you have a smile. Thanks for giving me a smile today!

The song was beautiful and flowed so well. But the story behind the song made it even better. Isn't it wonderful to know that when we fall down, He is always there to pick us up and point us in the right direction. Great song, written from a great heart!

One of my favorite songs, I think it is sung by Sandy Patti says, "They don't know that I run home when I fall down. They don't know who picks me up when no one else is around... heaven knows, I need lots of picking up!

I like another by Don Francisco called, When God Ran. That one is just wonderful. It describes what happens when we return as the prodigal son.
