Unbreakable Smile

Tori Kelly


La da da da dee
You're not breaking me
La dee da da da da, yeah

Somebody told me fame is a disease
You start singing the blues
When you start seeing the green
But I think it's all about what you choose
The way you live your life depends on you

That's when I realized
I wanna make a difference
Change other people's lives
Give hope even for a moment
Use my name for good
And change the game, I could

Because to make it
You think I gotta act a certain way
Be a little bit insane, live a little, it's okay
I guess we have different definitions of living
But you'll twist my words anyway

You'll say that I'm naive
Like I don't have a past
You're the one being deceived
I see right behind the mask
Trying to stir me up and get me mad
I smile because happiness is all I have
So

La da da da dee
You're not breaking me
La dee da da da
Ain't got time for ya, singin'
La da da da dee
You won't shatter me
La dee da da da
Got an unbreakable smile

You'll see me hanging with my fam
But that don't mean I'm living in a bubble
You'll find me at church
But that don't mean I can't cause trouble

Stir up a little scene
'Cause isn't that what you want?
For me to mess up so you could dress up some story
Saying: Tori, this'll sell more records
But I'd rather make 'em yawn
Than be a pawn on your chess board

So call me boring, call me cookie cutter
Call me what you want and matter fact
Just say it loud and don't st-stutter
'Cause I know who I am, yeah
I'm still the same

Just a California girl with big dreams thinking
Maybe they'll let me sing songs about real things
And baby, who knows?
Maybe I could sell out shows
Without taking off my clothes
God made me sexy I don't care if only I know

La da da da dee
You're not breaking me
(You're not breaking me, no)
La dee da da da
Ain't got time for ya
(And I'm singin')

La da da da dee
You won't shatter me
La dee da da da
Got an unbreakable smile, so

And I'll just keep on singing
La da da da dee
You're not breaking me
(Can't break my smile from me)
La dee da da da
Ain't got time for ya
(Ain't got time for you, no)

La da da da dee
You won't shatter me
La dee da da da
Got an unbreakable smile

I might be smiling, yes
But don't mistake kindness for weakness
