Oh baby oh baby No baby no I don't wanna smile If you're not smiling with me [Keisha] If there's ever a moment When you're not there To share in these moments with me It will be such a sad song It would all just be over [Pam] The stars wouldn't shine as bright if you walked away And don't you know that There'll be no reason to wake up everyday oh This world won't mean a thing to me, oh Chorus I don't wanna smile If you're not smiling with me I don't wanna laugh If you're not there to share the laughter with me I don't wanna live Without you, what kinda life would that be?
Oh baby no baby No baby no I don't wanna smile If you're not smiling with me [Keisha] You're not smiling with me You're not smiling with me [Pam] If you're not smiling with me.

As I was saying before getting off on a tangent, we should be aware of how our own actions are influenced by things like our social circles, confirmation bias, extreme thinking, etc. We can easily recognize how these factors negatively impact people in, say, incel communities, neo-Nazis, or even ML groups.
