To think I showed such promise, such potential as a lover
But I guess I had my hands full with myself without another
To occupy my fancies, to take root amongst the woods
Hell I should have known I'd never come up with the goods
I never could

I will laugh and I will cry
And I'll take comfort in that someday I shall die

I've said and I've done things in my time to make you shiver
I've spent time with wistful eyes just staring at the river
In the end I couldn't even find the words she wanted me to say
In her heart she knows she never knew me anyway
What can I say

I will laugh and I will cry
And I'll take comfort in that someday I shall die

I will laugh and I will cry
And I'll take comfort in that someday I shall die

Take for instance, if you will, a person you don't care for
Not someone you hate, just someone you turn off the phone for
Spare a thought for them because no matter how much they whine and they moan
There's not a bad thing you can say about them they've not said when they're alone
Pick up the phone

I will laugh and I will cry
And I'll take comfort in that someday I shall die

I will laugh and I will cry
And I'll take comfort in that someday I shall die

    General CommentNot sure these are perfect, but its a first attempt.
    I'm fairly sure its 'I will laugh and I _won't_ cry' rather than will cry, but its unclear, what do other people think?

    General CommentIt's "will cry" :) I'll submit some corrections based on the lyrics that came with the CD.
