Wipe away those tears from you cheeks, sugar,
‘Cause what’s shedding tears gonna fix here?
Those tears are making your vision blurred,
And you can’t see a way out of here.

Chin up and smile, now, come on,
It’ll all a little tiring trying to pretend,
But hold on, it won’t be long,
Before all the bad times end.

Just smile and look towards the sky,
Don’t question what, when, how or why,
Today’s the day, the day to try,
So come on, now, you don’t have to cry.

A bird that wants to fly away,
A bird that has lost it's way,
You can’t find the path again.
But with no action, lost is how you’ll stay.

So, why don’t you try today instead?
Why don’t you look above your head?
The infinite sky is endless, right?
Just like the paths you have in sight.

If you want, you could do anything,
Just work hard and you’ll achieve your aims,
Just fight through everything,
And take control of the reins.
