Alanis Morissette Lyrics

Artist: Alanis Morissette
Song: Smiling
Album: Such pretty forks in the road
Year: 2020

Lyrics:

This is a life of extremes
Both sides are slippery and enticing
These are my places off the rails

And this, my loose recollection of the falling
I barely remember who I failed
I was just trying to keep it together

This is the first wave of my white flag
This is the sound of me hitting bottom
This my surrender, if that’s what you call it
And the anatomy of my crash

And I keep on smiling
Keep on moving
Can’t stand still

Me, the notorious bottom dweller
Me, the ceiling-less brave explorer
Lured to the ends of overwhelm

This is the first wave of the white flag
This is the sound of me hitting bottom
This my surrender, if that’s what you call it
And the anatomy of my crash

And I keep on smiling
Keep on moving
Can’t stand still

Such pretty forks in the road
On this continuum I’ve been bouncing
Life-flashing promise before my eyes

This is the first wave of the white flag
This is the sound of me hitting bottom
This my surrender, if I can bear it
And the anatomy of my crash

And I keep on smiling
Keep on moving
Can’t stand still
Can’t stand still
