Ultimate Playlist #272: Just to See You Smile

Written by Phil Vassar, sung by Tim McGraw. My favorite Tim McGraw song, from Everywhere, my favorite Tim McGraw album.

There’s such a bittersweet sadness that’s at odds with the jaunty beat of this tune of unrequited love.

One thought on “Ultimate Playlist #272: Just to See You Smile

  1. I’ve heard this song many times and always liked it, but I never really listened to the words before. I really listened this time, and you’re right, this is such a sad song. The guy really loves this girl enough to let her go into the arms of another man. He lives “just to see her smile”, at the expensive of his own hurt and happiness, now that is love….or obsession. That is up to the listener to decide. Great selection Egg
