Shine The Light On Me

Album: Help Us Stranger (2019)
  • (Ooh)
    (Ooh) what can you do?
    (Ooh) what does it prove love?
    New love comes so, what can you do?

    When you're searching in the dark
    It doesn't matter if you're blind does it?
    Can't you see?
    And even lightning's just a spark
    But it's so enlightening when you need to
    Shine the light on me

    (Ooh) what can you do love?
    (Ooh) if only we knew?
    (Ooh) what does it prove love?
    New love comes so, what can you do?

    My hands are colder when you're gone
    It makes it hard to play the notes
    I write to warm your mind
    But nothing's colder than a song
    That's never played in a pile of papers left behind

    And only God can know
    Why the stories told
    Over, and over again
    But we don't need to know
    Why the flowers grow
    Let's just be happy they can

    When you're searching in the dark
    It doesn't matter if you're blind does it?
    Can't you see?
    And even lightning's just a spark
    But it's so enlightening when you need to
    Shine the light on me

    (Ooh) what can we do?
    (Ooh) what can we do?
    Shine the light on me
    (Ooh) what can we do?
    Shine the light on me
    (Ooh) what can we do?
    (Ooh) what can we do?
    Shine the light on me
    (Ooh) what can we do?
    Shine the light on me
    (Ooh) what can we do?
    Shine the light on me
    (Ooh) what can we do?
