If I laugh just a little bit
Maybe I can forget the chance
That I didn't have to know you
And live in peace, in peace

If I laugh just a little bit
Maybe I can forget the plans that
I didn't use to get you
At home -- with me -- alone

If I laugh just a little bit
Maybe I can recall the way
That I used to be, before you
And sleep at night -- and dream
If I laugh, baby if I laugh
Just a little bit --

    He was singing about someone he met, and couldn't get her to go home with him,she was younger than him by far. He had feelings for her,and was upset that she had to leave, and never saw her again, but couldn't stop thinking about her, and never followed up the plans he had thought of, to find her again, because he was too busy, so even though he lost sleep thinking off the love he lost, he tried to laugh about it to make himself feel better.
