Where do we go nobody knows?

I've gotta say I'm on my way down

God give me style and give me grace

God put a smile upon my face

 

ALEX: 

Owww … aa yeah,  ooww, yeah yeah..

 

Where do we go to draw the line?

I've gotta say

I wasted all your time, honey honey

Where do I go to fall from grace?

God put a smile upon your face

Ah yeah

 

Now when you work it out I'm worse than you

Yeah when you work it out I wanted to

Now when you work out where to draw the line

Your guess is as good as mine

 

ALEX: 

God put a smile upon your face face, yeah yeahyo

God put a smile upon my face face, yeah yeahyo

 

Where do we go nobody knows?

Don't ever say you're on your way down when

God gave you style and gave you grace

And put a smile upon your face

Ah yeah

 

Now when you work it out I'm worse than you

Yeah when you work it out I wanted to

Now when you work out where to draw the line

Your guess is as good as mine

 

It's as good as mine

It's as good as mine

It's as good as mine

As good as mine

As good as mine

As good as mine

As good as mine

 

ALEX: 

God put a smile upon your face face, yeah yeahyo

God put a smile upon my face face, yeah yeahyo

 

ALEX: 

Spinnin’ ‘round now to take a look at my reflection

Am I goin down or is it just my perception?   

Static in the airwaves foggin’ up my mirror 

Rub my chin, wonderin’ how to make my vision clearer

 

We’re losing ourselves to these material possessions

Status and reputation becoming the obsession

Confusion sets in and my thoughts get scattered

Contemplatin’ my purpose, askin’ if even matters?

 

Then God Put a Smile Upon Your Face and it helped me to retrace 

Steps I took to fill my heart with love

And remember that this energy’s a gift from above 

That fills you up inside and lets you know it’s alright 

 

Don’t let it get you behind, when don’t feeling aligned

Tough times make you stronger, make your spirit refined  

Nobody knows where to go and where to draw the line, 

I’d be lyin’, if I didn’t tell you that your guess is as good as mine

 

ALEX: 

God put a smile upon your face face, yeah yeahyo

God put a smile upon my face face, yeah yeahyo

 

ALEX: 

Owww … aa yeah,  ooww, yeah yeah..

 

Where do we go nobody knows?

Don't ever say you're on your way down when

God gave you style and gave you grace

And put a smile upon your face
