Chorus

You know I can't smile without you
I can't smile without you
I can't laugh and I can't sing
Im 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 Im going through
I just can't smile without you

You came along just like a song
And brighten my day
Who would of believed that you where 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
Im finding it hard to do anything
You see I feel sad when your sad
I feel glad when you're glad
If you only knew what Im going through
I just can't smile

Now some people say happiness takes so very long to find
Well, Im 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
Im 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 Im going through
I just can't smile without you

    This song is about a man falling in love with a stripper.
    He can't smile without her implants against his black guy lips.
    Love
    The end.
