Music Monday- Just to See You Smile

Beautiful black and white rose with note on the petals

This song came on the radio the other day and it made me think of Mr. Darcy. Couldn’t you see him just doing anything to make Elizabeth happy and smile–even if it means seeing her with another man? This was certainly something the Mr. Darcy in my book, The Secrets of Pemberley had to live through. Of course, I gave them a happier ending than poor Tim McGraw gets in this song. Who would you do anything for?

 

Lyrics:

“Just To See You Smile”

You always had an eye for things that glittered
But I was far from being 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 leaving Amarillo
Takin’ 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
When 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
When 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
When all is said and done
I’d never count the cost
It’s worth all that’s lost
Just to see you smile
