This week’s Song Lyric Sunday theme is Laugh/Laughter/Laughing, again hosted by Jim Adams. I found this a tough one. There are plenty of songs out there with Laugh in the title, but none of them were speaking to me. I did however find this one sung by Aretha Franklin which I liked. It’s called “Laughing on the Outside, Crying on the Inside”. It’s an old song and several singers have covered it. I hope you enjoy it too.
Lyrics Laughing on the Outride, Crying on the Inside
The crowd sees me out dancing Carefree and romancing Happy with my someone new I'm laughing on the outside Crying on the inside Cause I'm still in love with you They see me night and daytime Having such a gay time They don't know what I go through I'm laughing on the outside Crying on the inside Cause I'm still in love with you No one knows it's just a pose Pretending I'm glad we're apart And when I cry, my eyes are dry The tears are in my heart My darling, can't we make up? Ever since our breakup Make believe is all I do I'm laughing on the outside Crying on the inside Cause I'm still in love I am still in love with you
