I Am Only Smiling for Friends and You – Written Saturday 2nd August 2008 (Aged 33)

I Am Only Smiling for Friends and You

i am only smiling
for friends
and for you
i saw the way you looked at me
how could we ever have been true

i am only joking
for friends
and for you
i know the lives that live inside your eyes
and the sadness that remains inside

i am only carrying on
for friends
and for you
others come and others go
i know, i know, i always know

i am only holding
my friends
and especially you




James Garratt – Saturday 2nd August 2008
