"Just To See You Smile" as written by Tony Martin and Mark Nesler....
You always had an eye for things that glittered
But I was far from bein' made of gold
I don't know how but I scraped up the money
I just never could quite tell you no
Just like when you were leavin' Amarillo
To take that new job in Tennessee
And I quit mine so we could be together
I can't forget the way you looked at me

Just to see you smile
I'd do anything
That you wanted me to
And all is said and done
I'd never count the cost
It's worth all that's lost
Just to see you smile

When you said time was all you really needed
I walked away and let you have your space
Cause leavin' didn't hurt me near as badly
As the tears I saw rollin' down your face
And yesterday I knew just what you wanted
When you came walkin' up to me with him
So I told you that I was happy for you
And given the chance I'd lie again

Just to see you smile
I'd do anything
That you wanted me to
And all is said and done
I'd never count the cost
It's worth all that's lost
Just to see you smile

Just to see you smile
I'd do anything
That you wanted me to
And all is said and done
I'd never count the cost
It's worth all that's lost
Just to see you smile

    General CommentI adore this song. It's one of my favorite Tim McGraw songs, and I can relate to it.. Three years ago I met a guy, and we became good friends. I liked him, and two and a half years after we met he asked me out. I said no because of some stupid reasons (stupid me!) and I regretted it afterwards. Then, a few months later, he introduced his girlfriend to me. As much as I wanted to be with him, I was happy that he had moved on. I told him I was happy for him... While deep down inside, I was hurting.

    "And yesterday I knew just what you wanted
    When you came walkin' up to me with him
    So I told you that I was happy for you
    And given the chance I’d lie again "
