Cat Stevens – If I Laugh lyrics

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 wrote this for a young girl he met in 1968, he wanted her to go be with him but she couldn't for some reason. She was hard headed, and it wasn't till after they parted he realized how much he wanted her. And he missed that chance. So he tried to laugh it off. But could never forget her.
