Just smile, love
For it's a new day.
Bright and warm.

Quiet and pure.
Let the peace fill you.
Smile for there is
No better time to be alive.

Pain and suffering, despair and greed.
That was their creed.
Freedom and safety, love and honor.
That was our banner.
Try as we might,
They won't give us our rights.
Exiled from our homes,
With the cold deep in our bones,

He's fire, passion, and embers burning bright.
My skin scorches whenever he walks by.
He's a heavenly delight, full of grace and light.
My heart soars whenever he glides by.
He's the shadows of the night, full of secrets and frights.

He's the air in my lungs that fill me with each needy breath.
He is my everything that sets my soul alig...
