NEW MUSIC: Tori Kelly – Unbreakable Smile

I always have been a fan of Tori Kelly. I didn’t remember exactly when I found her music, but her voice and the lyrics are very beautiful both to my ears and heart. 🙂

She’s about to release her debut album later on June 23rd this year, called Unbreakable Smile (also her first single in the album).

This song… though I’m a dude and not a singer whatsoever, but this kind of reminds me of how I live my life and how I face lots of people around me. 🙂

Unbreakable Smile by Tori Kelly

La da da da dee, you’re not breaking me
La de da da da, ain’t got time for ya
La da da da dee, you won’t shatter me
La de da da da, got an unbreakable smile

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 naïve, 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

La da da da dee, you’re not breaking me
La de da da da, ain’t got time for ya, singing
La da da da dee, you won’t shatter me
La de da da da, got an unbreakable smile

You 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 can dress up
Some story saying, Tori this’ll sell more records
But I’d rather make ’em yawn than be a pawn on your chessboard
So call me boring, call me cookie cutter
Call me what you want
A matter of 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 can 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
La de da da da, ain’t got time for ya, singing
La da da da dee, you won’t shatter me
La de da da da, got an unbreakable smile

Oh Oh [2x]

Used to be easy to break me down
But now all I ever wanna do is smile
Yeah an unbreakable smile
So say what you want about me
I’m still gonna be the same old me
Ain’t got time for you no more no more
Got an unbreakable smile

Erwin.
