Laughing with mr lupus theme song

I have been challenged to write a song. There is something about the idea of writing a song that takes me to a place of cannots rather than can dos so I am digging deep to complete the task set before me. Today is not the greatest of days and I think the lyrics reflect that. I wanted to sing it for you but alas this is not one of my giftings!

I think I would like to set the song to a jazz melody.


There is laughter after the pain

I wake up in the morning and my legs don’t feel their best
I see that as a sign it’s just time for some more rest
The day is not yet over, it’s only just begun
I’ll simply have to find another way to get things done

Chorus
All that I’m after is a life full of laughter
Because all the while I know if I can only show
A glimmer of a smile
I can face the world and I can do anything

The face in the mirror seems way past its’ best
With swollen cheek and crinkled eyes it’s a daily test
To find a way to present an upbeat me to the world
But the day is not yet over, it’s only just begun
I’ll simply have to find another way to get things done

Chorus
All that I’m after is a life full of laughter
Because all the while I know if I can only show
A glimmer of a smile
I can face the world and I can do anything

How do you laugh when you feel like crying
When your world is up side down
Dig deep into the recesses of your mind
And borrow some laughter or a smile from a happier time
The day is not yet over, it’s only just begun
I’ll simply have to find another way to get things done

Chorus
All that I’m after is a life full of laughter
Because all the while I know if I can only show
A glimmer of a smile
I can face the world and I can do anything
