Shine On, Shine the Light on me,
In all of my life so that much more I see
In the light of his love
In the light of reflection
Oh what a world
Or sometimes oh so it seems
Eyes in the skies
In that silver gift friendship
A Glittering Prize
Is it the prize of lost loves
They can remember quiet sides of midnight
They can remember the attraction of fame
Like a Glittering Prize
I saw up on a clear day
First taking hearts
Then our last breath away

Always came a time, time was on our side
We were spending time, we were staring out
Catch me in a dream, Captured all in heart
We were spending time, we were staring out
Could there ever be, ever more than one
It's called an act of Love
Can you you never stop?

Shine On, Shine the Light on me,
In all of my Life
So much more I see
Like a Glittering Prize
I saw you up on a clear day
First taking heart then our last breath away
Only on a clear day coming into our lives

See it in the eye, satellite skies
We were spending time, we were staring out
Take in, Take in more, The Endless breath away
We were spending time, we were staring out
Could there ever be, ever more than one
It's called an act of Love
Can you you never stop?

Always on a clear day
Crashing into our lives
Is it the Price of Love
Like a Glittering Prize
Always on a clear day
Crashing into our lives
With your love
Only on a clear day
