(Randy Newman)

Can't I cry a little bit?
There's nobody to notice it
Can't I cry if I want to?
No-one cares

Why can't I pretend
That you'll love me again?
All I had has been taken from me
Now I cry tears that never become me

Just one smile means forgiving
Just one kiss, the hurt's all gone
Just one smile to make my life worth living
A little dream to build my world upon

How I wish I could say
All the things I want to say
If some way, you could see what's in my heart
Oh, baby

I don't ask for much
A look, a smile, a touch
Try to forget
Lord knows, I'm trying
It's so hard to forget
When your whole world you know is dying

Just one smile means forgiving
Just one kiss, the hurt's all gone
Just one smile to make my life worth living
A little dream to build my world upon

Just one smile please forgiving
Just one kiss, hurt's all gone
Just one smile to make my life worth living
A little dream to build my world upon
Just one smile
