Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

Lyrics only for now as I made the mistake of looking at the 50/90 forums while at the office. No instruments here so lyrics only. Not sure if I'll open this up for collab or if I want to add music to it myself later. *shrug*

EDIT: Music added, July 9th. Casiochords all the way! As such the recording didn't take very long at all... A couple minor flubs here and there but whatever, it's 50/90!

Thanks for the prompt, @writeandwrong!

Lyrics: 

If you see me smiling
Please know that I want it to be true
If you see me smiling
Please know that I'm smiling for you

The ups and downs of life have left me scarred
The good and bad things of existence can be hard
In the midst of all the swirling in my head
There is yet so very much to do before I'm dead

If you see me smiling
Please know that I want it to be true
If you see me smiling
Please know that I'm smiling for you

It's not that I have had it any harder than you
Everyone's got their own story, this I know is true
In the midst of all the strangeness that makes up life
I am ever thankful for God's grace, my kids and my wife

If you see me smiling
Please know that I want it to be true
If you see me smiling
Please know that I'm smiling for you

I'm smiling because I know
That things really aren't that bad
I'm smiling because I know
That really, I ought to be glad
I'm smiling because I know
A little joy can go a long way
I'm smiling because I know
This little smile might just make your day

If you see me smiling
Please know that I want it to be true
If you see me smiling
Please know that I'm smiling for you
