about

A collaboration with at-risk youths.

We asked the youths how they would say THANK YOU to their loved ones who supported them during the tough times, and transformed their expressions into a song.

lyrics

S-M-I-L-E
Oh you make the corners of my mouth defy gravity
S-M-I-L-E
This is how I'll say thank you for inspiring me

You're my guide and my pillar
My listening ear, my everything
You have never failed to encourage me and brighten up my day
Your care, concern and laughter make me S-M-I-L-E
If you only knew how much you mean to me

S-M-I-L-E
Oh you make the corners of my mouth defy gravity
S-M-I-L-E
This is how I'll say thank you for inspiring me

I wanna thank you for being my guardian angel
Never forsaking, always forgiving and never giving up on me
Gratitude is remembering all the things that you have done for me
I wanna keep you in my mind forevermore

S-M-I-L-E
Oh you make the corners of my mouth defy gravity
S-M-I-L-E
This is how I'll say thank you for inspiring me

Thank you for being so outstanding
In all that you do
Thank you for persevering
When no one sees what you do
You've got a heart of gold
And in case you didn't know
It's necessary that I spell it for you

S-M-I-L-E
Oh you make the corners of my mouth defy gravity
S-M-I-L-E
This is how I'll say thank you for inspiring me
