Lyrics

You could make me smile again
Like I used to do
Just as I was smiling then
When our love was new

You could give my broken heart a break
Let’s take another chance
Why can’t we forget our first mistake
And treat this like a new romance

You could make me smile again
Dry up all my tears
Make my life worthwhile again
Through the coming years

And then I’ll caress the happiness
I haven’t known since then
You and only you could make me smile again
