As always Y ARA makes us believe in loving again. Their songs always make us feel the joys that only having someone to love can bring. So despite our very cynical views on life and love, Y ARA makes us believe that true love exists.

Especially when they sing, “‘Cause I’m holding on to a smile and I’ll be there for you when you cry tonight.” Because it makes us picture the kind of love that chooses to look and hold on to the bright side of things. And that no matter what they go through, the pain or the challenges, they’ll be there holding on. Because they believe in the kind of love that they have. And it just makes us say, sana all!
