    Behind Every Smile - A Song For Nam Milliken

    0:00

"There's a story behind every smile
It gets better, it gets easier with time
I know the truth everytime I see your smile"

Sometimes we all smile to hide the sadness and pain we carry inside. When you ask someone, "Are you ok?", we often hear the answer, "Yes, I'm fine". Far too many times we hear the news about beautiful people in our lives leaving us too soon. We always remember their smile and positive energy. But I know there's a story behind every smile. I only wish I could have known what it is before it was too late.

This song is dedicated to Nam Milliken. I will always remember your smile. Rest in peace Nam <3

Behind Every Smile  by Jared Rehberg

V1:
There's a love in your heart, you can't replace
There are memories we save, that can't be erased       
I can feel the frustration, boiling up inside of me                             
Trying to understand the sadness, that you feel.                              

Chorus:
There's a story behind every smile                                       
It gets better, it gets easier with time                                  
I know the truth, every time I see your smile                    

V2:
You can't see the future, when you stare at the past     
Let go of anger, save more love for yourself                      
I know your struggles, I can see it in your smile                 
Every time you say "I'm fine".                                                   

Chorus:
There's a story behind every smile                                        
It gets better, it gets easier with time                                    
I know the truth, every time we say goodbye, goodbye               


Break:
There are, no easy answers, to all the questions "Why"
I know sometimes, it's not enough to  (just) be alive      
That's a lie, you will survive,                                                      
everything is going to be alright                                                              

V3:
There's an emptiness inside that will never be filled.                                     
When your heart is racing, thoughts are chasing,  you just can't escape 
You're not alone, you don't have to lie                                                                  
You're not alone, you don't have to lie                                                                  
I'll be here for you, I miss your smile                                                                     

Chorus:
There's a story behind every smile                                         
It gets better, it gets easier with time                                    
I know the truth, every time I miss your smile                  
I miss your smile
