I can smile through the pain

Location

Life's not always easy.

Most people have it pretty touch,

But with my future so near in sight,

And I have no shame.

I can smile through the pain.

My fingers hit those metal strings,

Like they have a thousand times.

With my guitar, I have my voice,

I have no shame.

I can smile through the pain.

Lost my father at the age of nine.

Lost my best friend in a blink of a eye.

Sometimes it's so hard to get by,

But I have to shame.

I can smile through the pain.

Momma likes to scream and yell

This house is not my home.

But I've found the girl I love,

I have no shame.

I can smile through the pain.

Sometimes I hate myself

Because others just can see

I'm the MAN I'm supposed to be

Yeah I have no shame

I'm proud of smiling through the pain.
