We consider a single brane embedded in five dimensions with zero and positive cosmological constant. In this setup, the existence of the dS4 brane is allowed. We explore the gravitational fluctuations on the brane, it is pointed out that the usual four-dimensional gravity can be reproduced by a normalizable zero mode and that the continuous massive modes are separated by a mass gap from zero mode. We derive the relation among the cosmological constant in the brane, the five-dimensional fundamental scale and Planck scale. Finally, we show that a nonzero small observed cosmological constant cannot be obtained in this setup.
