World Of Music Choir: Tuesday 23rd June – ‘I Smile’ led by Carla Jane

Carla Jane suggests you have a listen to this week’s song before the session – click here!

Band on the Wall’s doors may be shut for a little while but you can still take part in our fun music learning programmes from the comfort of your own home.

Tune in every Tuesday at 6pm (UK time) to join the World Of Music Choir online! Sing traditional and modern songs, harmonies and rounds. We learn by ear so you don’t have to read music. If you would like an mp3 of the song to sing-along to after the session, that can be downloaded here, where you’ll also find the words! This week’s lyrics are also below.

This live event is interactive; you can comment and ask questions, and the video will be available after the workshop to recap and sing-along to.

To view and add live comments, open this video in YouTube.

Email learning@bandonthewall.org to become an official choir member!


This Week’s Song: I Smile

(Kirk Franklin)

Today’s a new day, but there is no sunshine

Nothing but clouds, and it’s dark in my heart

And it feels like a cold night

Today’s a new day, where are my blue skies

Where is the love and the joy that you promised me

Tell me it’s alright

I almost gave up, but a power that I can’t explain

fell from heaven like a shower now

(Chorus)

I smile, even though I hurt see I smile

I know God is working so I smile

Even though I’ve been here for a while

I smile, smile

It’s so hard to look up when you’ve been down

Sure would hate to see you give up now

You look so much better when you smile, so smile

Today’s a new day, but there is no sunshine

Nothing but clouds, and it’s dark in my heart

And it feels like a cold night

Today’s a new day, where are my blue skies

Where is the love and the joy that you promised me

Tell me it’s alright

I almost gave up, but a power that I can’t explain

fell from heaven like a shower now

(Chorus)

I smile, even though I hurt see I smile

I know God is working so I smile

Even though I’ve been here for a while

I smile, smile

It’s so hard to look up when you’ve been down

Sure would hate to see you give up now

You look so much better when you smile, so smile

(Bridge)
Smile.. for me
Can you just smile… for me
Smile.. for me
Can you just smile… for me

(Vamp)
Oh- oh-oh – You look so much better when you (x7)
You look so much better when you smile
I almost gave up, but a power that I can’t explain
fell from heaven like a shower now
Right now

(Key change)

(Chorus)

I smile, even though I hurt see I smile

I know God is working so I smile

Even though I’ve been here for a while

I smile, smile

It’s so hard to look up when you’ve been down

Sure would hate to see you give up now

You look so much better when you smile, so smile

(Vamp)
Oh- oh-oh – You look so much better when you (x7)
You look so much better when you smile
