It Only Hurts When I Smile

Lol. Another country song. 

I put a smile on my face when I go outside My friends all see the pain I try to hide in my eyes And I try to act like I can make it on my own Since you've been gone I'm alone I suppose I'm gonna be here a while And for the rest . . . of my life It only hurts when I smile. . I thought our love was strong I didn't think you would leave I think about about you all the time Do you still think about me? and when I think of how I threw us away It only hurts when I think . The first time I laid eyes on you you took my breath away I lost my breath again the day you walked away Pain won't go and damage is done And I just can't feel a thing It only hurts when I breathe . And I see where I went wrong And I see what I've done But I don't see you coming home to me And when I look at it all that way It only hurts when I see . And I just can't live without you My heart is still in your hands And there's no "this" left to fix And there's no "us" left to mend And I guess I gotta live with it So it only hurts when I live . I put a smile on my face when I go outside My friends all see the pain I try to hide in my eyes And I try to act like I can make it on my own Since you've been gone I'm alone I suppose I'm gonna be here a while And for the rest . . . of my life It only hurts when I smile. And for the rest . . . of my life It only hurts when I smile.

Is it deliberate that I should hear the faint sound of music whenever I read one of your pieces? You would make a fine lyricist. J.
