I am not a good singer but when it comes to singing lullabies for my children, I tend to make-up anything as the moment requires. But there are several songs that I have for them. Songs that expresses what my heart has for them. One of these songs is entitled “When I See You Smile” by Bad English.
This song was memorable for me because it was the song I kept in my heart when my husband left me for another woman several years ago. I was faced with so many problems that I wanted to give up but when I see my children smile, I get to have the strength to face the world and fight!
Until now, this is the song that inspires me to continue and be strong for my children, no matter what.
Here is a video and the lyrics to the song:
Sometimes I wonder How I’d ever make it through, Through this world without having you I just wouldn’t have a clue
‘Cause sometimes it seems Like this world’s closing in on me, And there’s no way of breaking free And then I see you reach for me
Sometimes I wanna give up I wanna give in, I wanna quit the fight And then I see you, baby And everything’s alright, everything’s alright
When I see you smile I can face the world, oh oh, you know I can do anything When I see you smile I see a ray of light, oh oh, I see it shining right through the rain When I see you smile Oh yeah, baby when I see you smile at me
Baby there’s nothing in this world that could ever do What a touch of your hand can do It’s like nothing that I ever knew
And when the rain is falling I don’t feel it, ’cause you’re here with me now And one look at you baby Is all I’ll ever need, you’re all I’ll ever need
Sometimes I wanna give up I wanna give in, I wanna quit the fight And then I see you baby And everything’s alright, everything’s alright
