Alanis Morissette – Smiling Lyrics

Play this song

[Verse 1]
This is a life of extremes
Both sides are slippery and enticing
These are my places off the rails
And this, my loose recollection of a falling
I barely remember who I failed
I was just trying to keep it together

[Pre-Chorus]
This is my first wave of my white flag
This is the sound of me hitting bottom
This my surrender, if that’s what you call it
In the anatomy of my crash

[Chorus]
And I keep on smiling
Keep on moving
Can’t stand still

[Verse 2]
Me, the notorious bottom dweller
Me, the ceiling-less brave explorer
Lured to the ends of overwhelm

[Pre-Chorus]
This is my first wave of the white flag
This is the sound of me hitting bottom
This my surrender, if that’s what I call it
In the anatomy of my crash

[Chorus]
And I keep on smiling
Keep on moving
Can’t stand still

[Bridge]
Such pretty forks in the road
On this continuum I’ve been bouncing
Life flashing promise before my eyes

[Pre-Chorus]
This is my first wave of the white flag
This is the sound of me hitting bottom
This my surrender, if I can bare it
In the anatomy of my crash

[Chorus]
And I keep on smiling
Keep on moving
Can’t stand still
