from by Leigh Harrison



Recorded in 1980
Written by Leigh Harrison © APRA 1979


You ask me if I'm brokenhearted
I thought you knew that Leos don't have hearts
Except on their sleeves.
You tell me you're sad to be leaving
Uh-huh - I know how hard it must be for you
To leave someone like me

But as you can see I smile through the tears I wear to help you bear the pain
Of walking out on a lover like me again
I couldn't have hurt you, you didn't complain

You tell me I'll soon find another
I tell you another will find me
Before you're down the stairs
You hope that I don't find it too hard
Huh! You found it too hard most every night
It's an easy goodbye

You say that I should show more feeling
'Cos you had lots of love to give to me
What's new? So do I
You ask how I keep myself smiling
I just carry a mirror around with me
And a photo of you

And as you can see I cry through the smiles I wear to help me bear the pain
Of watching another lover walk out again
You shouldn't have hurt me - it was only a game
