From outside the open window
How the faithful was gathered to sing
As the tears welled up inside me
Spilled down in a mournful rain

And all sands of time stood still
As the procession climbed the hill
And off in the distance, it's a mother running away
The father turned to say

Somebody shine a light, show me the way
Take me through the night to the break of day
Won't you shine a light so I can see?
Lift up these chains of darkness and set me free

Lookin' through the open window
I can see where I went wrong
I quit searching for the rainbow
I forgot where I belong

Then the darkness dips around me
And I have no strength to fight
Though I'll search for those who love me
And I'll search for the one above me
Said just like I'm gonna say

Somebody shine a light, show me the way
Take me through the night to the break of day
Won't you shine a light so I can see?
Lift up these chains of darkness and set me free

And all sands of time stood still
As the echo crossed my window sill
I heard it plain as day, I could hear 'em sing
I'm trying to find my way

Somebody shine a light, show me the way
Take me through the night to the break of day
Won't you shine a light so I can see?
Lift up these chains of darkness and set me free

Shine a light, show me the way
Take me through the night to the break of day
Shine a light, so I can see
Lift up these chains of darkness and set me free

Shine a light, so I can see
Lift up these chains of darkness and set me free
