Shine On

I look down at the carpet before me
I guess I’m the one to ignore
To ignore…face down on the floor
Don’t hit me – I’m sore
I don’t know what to say sometimes
I’ve committed too many selfish crimes
I am so afraid of the darkness…
Veiling my eyes…
The sun does shine, but I know
That you all care for me…it makes me smile with glee
You take me out of the abyss
The moon begins to dim and grow dark like a crow
I am so afraid of the darkness
His light does glow bright, but I show off His shimmering spirit
Tonight, you will play fair…
Tonight, we are a fine, fine pair…

(Ch.)
Hmm….hmm… hmm…
Hmm…x6
Oh, shine on, pure light from the moon…there’s enough room
For you and I…to shine on
Oh, shine on, precious sight…relieving the gloom
Oh, bring it on, don’t start a fight
Oh, bring it on, let’s sleep this splendid night

I look down at the paper before me
I guess I’m the one with this purple pen
I don’t know what to do, baby
But, I’ve been wondering
Where have you been?
Where have you been?
Shine on, my little sunlight
Shine on like the dawn…boy, what a fantastic sight 

(Ch.)
Hmm….hmm… hmm…
Hmm…x6
Oh, shine on, pure light from the moon…there’s enough room
For you and I…to shine on
Oh, shine on, precious sight…relieving the gloom
Oh, bring it on, don’t start a fight
Oh, bring it on, let’s sleep this splendid night

I catch a glimpse of the ceiling lights
I look up at it for a second or two…
Ooh….ooh…ooh…
I guess I’m the one left behind…in back of the line…
I’m secluded from the crowd…lost in a multitude…
But I won’t make a big fuss out of it…I’ll have a positive attitude…
Commotion becomes louder…I’m pretty loud myself. Hah…
I’m lost in a maze of people of all shapes and sizes
I’m in a big crisis…I’m getting good vibes around you though

(Ch.)
Hmm….hmm… hmm…
Hmm…x6
Oh, shine on, pure light from the moon…there’s enough room
For you and I…to shine on
Oh, shine on, precious sight…relieving the gloom
Oh, bring it on, don’t start a fight
Oh, bring it on, let’s sleep this splendid night

I guess I’m the only one left behind
Only to find… 
Only to find…
His light…now, I’m blind…
But His light makes me quite certain…
For a minute,
He makes me feel important…
I’m feeling very, very content…
I don’t know where to flee
But, I’ll be…happy…(for you) x3

(Ch.)
Hmm….hmm… hmm…
Hmm…x6
Oh, shine on, pure light from the moon…there’s enough room
For you and I…to shine on
Oh, shine on, precious sight…relieving the gloom
Oh, bring it on, don’t start a fight
Oh, bring it on, let’s sleep this splendid night

I look up to You, Lord
You never make me feel bored
Oh…oh…oh…oooh…

(Thank you everyone and Him…for hearing my typed or written words)
