Shine A Light
Words & Music by Keith Brown


So Captain Time decrees a hard time in your life,
And pain is playing with your mind,
You claim you’re happy, yet your actions show the strife
Of things you think you’ll never find.

Life is a two-way road of happy and of sad,
You’re choosing darkness over light,
Reflections on the waters show the road is bad,
Don’t live in shadows of the night.

Shine a light, shine a light,
You’ll find that morning’s broken,
A new day’s dawning clear and bright,
Shine a light, shine a light,
You’re underestimating the Hell you are creating,
Strive to shine a light.

(Come on, don’t let the light fade away)

Rejoice, rejoice there is no need to live in strife,
Reach out and catch your peace of mind.
You’re the lone pilot as you make your flight through life,
And bound to crash if you are blind.

Send up the sunshine, light the canyons of your mind,
The turning of the tide is near,
So many answers in the wind before your eyes,
Things aren’t as bad as they appear.

Shine a light, shine a light,
You’ll find that morning’s broken,
A new day’s dawning clear and bright,
Shine a light, shine a light,
You’re underestimating the Hell you are creating,
Strive to shine a light, shine a light,
You’ll find that morning’s broken,
A new day’s dawning clear and bright,
Shine a light, shine a light,
I’d like to help you friend,
But you turn and shut me out so tight,
Just shine a light.

(Come on, don’t let the light fade away)
(Just shine a light, maybe)

You’ve been running and you cannot hide
From the man residing down deep inside,
And you’ve been suffering at your own hand,
Call off the demons, strike up the band.
