YOU MAKE ME SHINE
(Writer: Timothy L. Morris)
Evenings used to find me starin’ into a starry night,
Searchin’ through a billion stars for my one and only-one Ms. Right;
Even though I didn’t find you there I prayed time and time I might-,
Wishing in the twilight on a sea of stars my tears blurred from sight.
Lookin’ through a lifetime of souls lost in “meant-to-be“;
All I saw was a million eyes caught in a kind of love I couldn’t see;
Then, I felt like I’d come home to where I was s’pposed to be…
When I found your love hidden in the light you only shine on me!
You make me shine, now, I see forever;
You make me shine, bright as broad daylight!
Every night I get down on my knees…
And thank God, since He sent you I‘ve come to be;
‘Cause, anyone can see…(you make me shine…)
I shine because Your love shines on me!
Like sunlight sets the moon on fire every night,
You touch me and I’m still burnin’ at morning light;
You warm my soul with tenderness, send my spirit into flight;
Your fingertips taught my words… how to get the feelin’ right.
Now, I’m lost in your love-light where a shadow used to be;
’ bathing in the starlight that once was too bright for me!
My soul has a heartbeat where once it couldn’t breathe;
I’m drowning in a sea of light but there’s no need to rescue me!
Every night I get down on my knees…,
And, thank God He sent this love I see…
Because, you shine you make me shine…
Through the love you shine on me!
(I Shine… because you shine on me!)
