Beth Hart - Might As Well Smile Lyrics




I woke up this morning
With a smile on my face
I threw out those stones
That stood in my way
And I put on a new pair
Of hard walking shoes
I woke up this morning
Laughing the blues
Woke up laughing the blues

When the talking on the TV
Tells me I should be scared
I don’t let it overwhelm me
I know that joy will be there
Behind every tear
It might take a while
Might as well smile

I go to the corner
and buy me a drink
I say to the man
“This shit helps me think”
He says “who ya fooling?
I know your type!!
A dead woman walking”
Maybe he’s right
I sure hope he ain’t right

And when the preacher on the TV
Tells me I should be scared
I don’t let it overtake me
I know that faith will be there
Behind every fear
It might take a while
Might as well smile

I woke up this morning
With a smile on my face
Without a warning
My fear was erased
So I put on a new pair
Of good walking shoes
I woke up this morning
Laughing the blues
Cause I got nothing to lose

And if the darkness brings the thunder
And my brother turns me away
I will turn and love another
There will be light in the shade
And that’s where I’ll lay
It might take a while
Might as well smile
It might take a while
Might as well smile
