Tuesday Tunes: Mikky Ekko’s “Smile”

Singer: Mikky Ekko

Song: “Smile”

from Time

lyrics:

Smile, the worst is yet to come

We’ll be lucky if we ever see the sun
Got nowhere to go, we could be here for a while
But the future is forgiven so smile
We’re trying so hard to get it all right
But only if you’re lonely at the end of the night
And I wanna be somewhere away from this place
And somewhere just a little closer to grace

So smile, the worst is yet to come
We’ll be lucky if we ever see the sun
Got nowhere to go, we could be here for a while
But the future is forgiven so smile
Smile

Well, call me loser
Call me thief
Tell me I’m special when you spit at me
Cause I don’t wanna be lonely
I wanna be loved
And I want you hold me like I’m the only one

I’ll smile
The worst is yet to come
We’ll be lucky if we ever see the sun
Got nowhere to go, we could be here for a while
But the future is forgiven so smile
Smile

Time will eventually knock on my door
And tell me I’m not needed around anymore
But he’ll hold me so close at the end of the day
When I’m quiet I can nearly hear him say

Smile
The worst is yet to come
We’ll be lucky if we ever see the sun
Got nowhere to turn, and we’ve got nothing but time
But the future is forever, the future is forever so smile

Smile
The worst is yet to come
We’ll be lucky if we ever see the sun

  1. There’s a hidden darkness to it. The cheerfulness of the music is deceiving, as it the word smile. The word it usually so positive, yet here it feels so hopeless. I love the contradiction.
