  • Roman candles that burn in the night
    Yeah you are a shining light
    You lit a torch in the empty night
    Yeah you are a shining light
    Yeah you light up my life

    You have always been a thorn in the side
    But to me you're a shining light
    You arrive and the night is alive
    Yeah you are a shining light
    Yeah you light up my life

    We made a connection
    A full on chemical reaction
    But by dark divine intervention
    Yeah you are a shining light
    A constellation once seen
    Over Royal David's city
    An epiphany, you burn so pretty
    Yeah you are a shining light

    You are a force you are a constant source
    Yeah you are a shining light
    Incandescent in the darkest night
    Yeah you are a shining light
    My mortal blood I would sacrifice
    For you are my shining light
    Sovereign bride of the infinite
    Yeah you are a shining light
    Yeah you light up my life

    We made a connection
    A full on chemical reaction
    But by dark divine intervention
    Yeah you are a shining light
    A constellation once seen
    Over Royal David's city
    An epiphany, you burn so pretty
    Yeah you are a shining light

    These are the days you often say
    There's nothing that we cannot do
    Beneath a canopy of stars
    I'd shed blood for you
    The north star in the firmament
    You shine the most bright
    I've seen you draped in an electric veil
    Shrouded in celestial light

    We made a connection
    A full on chemical reaction
    But by dark divine intervention
    Yeah you are a shining light
    A constellation once seen
    Over Royal David's city
    An epiphany, you burn so pretty
    Yeah you are a shining light
    Yeah you light up my life
    Yeah you are a shining light
    Yeah you light up my life Writer/s: TIM WHEELER

  • Bryan from Melbourne, AustraliaInstead of a funeral, when I die my instructions are to instead send everyone who was important to me during my lifetime a copy of the Free All Angels album, specifically for this song. I want them to play it loud and often.
