After travelling through both highs and lows with the songs, we wanted to end the album on a positive note. What is more positive and exciting than new love? Many people will say that the "chase" is always more exciting than the relationship. There are times when it can be confusing and worrisome, as well. But it is amazing what calm a simple smile can bring. It can engender confidence and affection, sweaty palms and brash decisions, appearance checks and flushed cheeks. It can also elicit a smile in return.



What am I doing here?
What won't I say out of fear
of losing a friend
fear of losing again

You just smile
just sit there and smile
You light up the dark

What are we doing here?
3am and you're in my arms
So close because it's dark
so close you feel my beating heart

Don't you go
No, don't you go

I don't know what to say
Come up with a clever line
I just look the other way
Oh no, is that a bad sign?
Are we both in denial?
Please, God, don't let me mess this up
So I just sit there and smile

And you just smile
Just sit there and smile

You light up the dark
