What is the light
that you have
Shining all around you
Is it chemically derived?

Cause if it's natural
Something glowing from inside
Shining all around you
It's potential has arrived

Looking into space it surrounds you
Love is the place that you're drawn to
Looking into space it surrounds you
Love is the face that you're drawn to

Looking into space it surrounds you
Love is the place that you're drawn to
Looking out to space it surrounds you
Love is the face that you're drawn to

What is the light
that you have
Shining all around you
Is it chemically derived?
