Ben Affleck: Ladies and gentlemen -- David Cook.

David Cook: [ singing ]
"Never really said too much
Afraid it wouldnít be enough
Just try to keep my spirits up
When thereís no point in grieving
Doesnít matter anyway
Words could never make me stay
Words will never take my place
When you know Iím leaving

Try to leave a light on when Iím gone
Something I rely on to get home
One I can feel at night
A naked light, a fire to keep me warm
Try to leave a light on when Iím gone
Even in the daylight, shine on
And when itís late at night you can look inside
You wonít feel so alone

You know weíve been down that road
What seems a thousand times before
My back to a closing door and my eyes to the seasons
That roll out underneath my heels
And you donít know how bad it feels
To leave the only one that I have ever believed in

Try to leave a light on when Iím gone
Something I rely on to get home
One I can feel at night
A naked light, a fire to keep me warm
Try to leave a light on when Iím gone
Even in the daylight, shine on
And when itís late at night you can look inside
You wonít feel so alone

Sometimes it feels like weíve run out of luck
When the signal keeps on breaking up
When the wires cross in my brain
Youíll start my heart again
When I come along

Try to leave a light on when Iím gone
Something I rely on to get home
One I can feel at night
A naked light, a fire to keep me warm
Try to leave a light on when Iím gone
Even in the daylight, shine on
And when itís late at night you can look inside
You wonít feel so alone."
