Something was pulling me, without knowing what was leading me on
Your shining light, your shining light
In my darkest hour the only way to bring the dawn
Was your shining light, your shining light

But you're unaware your shining light is even on
Like with a little glance when you take me by surprise
And I take a chance, and see it all through your eyes
Free me from my history, show me where to draw the line
By lighting up the mystery, and you don't even know that it shines

I'm not worried now, about flyin' too close to the sun
Your shining light, your shining light
When December skies are cold
Well you know I will always run to
Your shining light, your shining light

But you're unaware your shining light is even on
Like with a little glance when you take me by surprise
And I take a chance, and see it all through your eyes
Free me from my history, show me where to draw the line
By lighting up the mystery, and you don't even know that it shines

I won't abuse it so please just let it glow behind your smile
Let me use it, let me feel the warmth like a little child

Who understands your glance, though it takes me by surprise
And I take a chance, and I see it all through your eyes
It's your shining light
And it moves me out on the mind
It's your shining light
You don't even know that it shines
It's your shining light, ohh
It's your shining light
You don't even know that it shines
It's your shining light, ohh
