When you can't find the light
That got you through the cloudy days
When the stars ain't shinin' bright
You feel like you've lost your way
When the candle light of home
Burn so very far away
Now you got to let your soul shine
Just like my daddy used to say

He used to say soul shine, it's better than sunshine
It's better than moonshine, damn sure, better than a rain
Hey, now people don't mind, we all feel this way sometime
You got to let your soul shine, shine till the break of day

I grew up thinkin' that I had it made
Gonna make it on my own
Life can take the strongest man
Make him feel so alone
Now sometimes I feel a cold wind
Blowin' through my achin' bones
I think back to what my daddy said
He said "Boy, in this darkness before the dawn"

Let your soul shine, it's better than sunshine
It's better than moonshine, damn sure, better than rain
Yeah, now people don't mind, we all feel this way sometimes
You got to let your soul shine, shine till the break of day

Sometimes a man can feel this emptiness
Like a woman has robbed him of his very soul
A woman too, God knows, she can feel like this
And when your world seems cold
You got to let your spirit take control

Talking about soul shine, it's better than sunshine
It's better than moonshine, damn sure, better than a rain
Yeah, now people don't mind, we all feel this way sometimes
You got to let your soul shine, shine till the break of day

Oh, it's better than sunshine, it's better than moonshine
Damn sure, better than rain
Yeah, now people don't mind, we all feel this way sometimes
Gotta let your soul shine, shine till the break of day
