lyrics

Tall, dark, and handsome in black
Arms crossed like you're under attack
How did you ever get so cold?
Your eyes condescend on us all
Poor thing, you look miserable
Standing at the edge of the room all alone

I try to make you smile
But you will not be moved
It makes me laugh but you disapprove
Is this really the way that you want to be?
Darcy!

You speak with perfect civility
No less and no more than you need
Careful never to let down your guard
I wonder what you're really like
Without the walls that you're hiding behind
How do I uncover your perfectly disguised heart?

I try to make you smile
But you will not be moved
It makes me laugh but you disapprove
Why do you need to be a mystery?
Darcy!

Lighten up, little boy
Lighten up, little boy
You walk around with your eyes cast down
Lighten up, little boy
Lighten up, little boy
You look so sad, gonna drive yourself mad
Lighten up just a little
Just a little bit
Just a little bit
There's an inner beauty you don't let the world see
Darcy

I try to make you smile
But you will not be moved
It makes me laugh but you disapprove
Don't you think that it's time you set your heart free?
Darcy!

Lighten up, little boy
Lighten up, little boy
Lighten up just a little
