You know I can't smile without you I can't smile without you I can't laugh and I can't sing I'm finding it hard to do anything

You see I feel sad when you're sad I feel glad when you're glad If you only knew what I'm going through I just can't smile without you

You came along just like a song And brightened my day Who would've believed that you were part of a dream Now it all seems light years away

And now you know I can't smile without you I can't smile without you I can't laugh and I can't sing I'm finding it hard to do anything

You see I feel sad when you're sad I feel glad when you're glad If you only knew what I'm going through I just can't smile

Now some people say happiness takes so very long to find Well, I'm finding it hard leaving your love behind me

And you see I can't smile without you I can't smile without you I can't laugh and I can't sing I'm finding it hard to do anything

You see I feel glad when you're glad I feel sad when you're sad If you only knew what I'm going through I just can't smile without you

And you see I can't smile without you I can't smile without you I can't laugh and I can't sing I'm finding it hard to do anything

You see I feel glad when you're glad I feel sad when you're sad If you only knew what I'm going through I just can't smile without you

I can't smile without you
