Lilly James

Rookie (May 9th 1993 / Saskatoon)

No one else (I smile)


I'm smiling even though
I want to cry,
I smile for you,
No one else
Even though you're not
Here, I smile for you
No one else
Everyone is crying
It's so hard not to
But I smile, I look at
The photos of you
My eyes start to fill
With tears, but I
Hold back the tears and
I smile for you,
No one else just you.
