Smile to Stay Alive

I wasn’t born this way

With the pains and tears

With the hurt and grief

I wasn’t born this way

Not to jump lines or join the queue

Not to pay bills or try surviving

Not to race or risk everything

I wasn’t born this way

To wear a frown and wear out

To burn the bridges and burn out

To tie loose ends or get entangled

To knock on doors or get knocked out

I wasn’t born this way

But each day I try

To wear a smile and stay alive

To fake a smile and live a little

To strive and fight to stay alive

I wasn’t born this way
