Clara Benin - Smile Lyrics




I didn't know any better
I was four years old
Just learning how to pray
But right before the end of 1998 you came

Yes we saw you coming
But nothing prepared us for what came next
You brought a different light into our lives
Oh you were something else

Oh and I won't let them steal your light
So powerful and pure and bright
You can fight off the darkness with just one smile
With just one smile

I didn't know any better
I was fifteen years old
I've forgotten how to pray
Glow in the dark stars and classical guitars kept us sane

Yes, I am the quiet one
I've always kept it in, yeah I've always been afraid
While I stayed in the shade you were out dancing in the rain
You were always brave

Oh and I won't let them steal your light
So powerful and pure and bright
I lose all my worries when I see your smile
When I see your smile

Ooh
Ooh
Ooh

I still don't know any better
As I should by now, I'm still learning how to pray
But you were always there, you watch me fall, you watch me break
You always stay

Oh and I won't let them steal your light
So powerful and pure and bright
I swear there's something about your smile
Your smile

Don't let them keep you from smiling
Don't let them keep you from shining
Don't let them keep you from burning bright

Keep it bright
Keep the fire alive
Keep it bright
Let it burn inside
Keep it bright
Keep it bright
Keep that smile

  6. Methus Shiela Herrero

  7. Zel Corona

    I have a little sister and we have an 11 year age gap. She's currently 9 yrs old. We're so opposite in so many ways but it still amazes me how we are able to find ways to truly bond with each other. She always covers up for me and sometimes acts more of an ate than I am. I can't express how much grateful I am for her that just typing this already makes me cry. If ever so many years pass by, I hope this comment would still be alive. Hey, Gab. I'll be introducing you to Clara Benin soon and if you ever happen to see this, know that ate loves you very much!!! Always have, and always will. ❤

    Your songs bring me peace in this world full of hate and war. Your music is my balancing factor when i'm about to fall. Keep making more and the world will experience the same as i did. You will go places, the world will know your name. You are beautiful, good and unconquerable every minute of every day. 😌🙏🏻

    Clara Benin

  44. Eduard Sotto

    I closed my eyes and listened to this. This song is just so beautiful. Oh Clara, why the world is missing out on you?

  45. erica is my name mendes is my last name

    why i didn't know you. your songs are so beautiful.

  46. Jezreel Santos

    captured the soul ;)

  47. Myka Karganilla

    i think this song would blend well with ed sheeran's one, am i the only one??? this song's lightness would balance out one's anguish - but they're also both stripped down to guitar strings, raw and bare. both songs are amazing, and this definitely needs much, much more recognition!

    Patrick Lim

    You're definitely not the only one. :) The chorus does remind me of Ed's "One".

  48. r3kta scr3am
