Love Shines

LoveShines.ogg LoveShines.mp3
This is part of a batch of lyrics written in 1989 and which I didn't put music to until March 2nd, 2001.

I put a tune to the chorus in the wee morning hours of June 6th, 2002... William's anniversary. However, I didn't get the verses and bridge finished until Valentine's Day, 2003. How appropriate, hmmm?


LOVE SHINES
wmh - December 8th, 1989

Our lives have run in circles
At times on constant lines
With ever-changing seasons
Our love will always shine

Wrapped in sheets of harmony
Wake to mornings made of touch
Brighter glowing every day
These flames of growing love

[chorus]

Love shines
As bright as the sun in the summer sky
Love shines
Twinkling like stars on a winter night
And through the dark from dusk 'til dawn
You're my candle burning strong
To light the way
And love shines, love shines, love shines on

Half-lit rooms in firelight
Grow shadows less defined
But even through the darkness
Our love will always shine

As a beacon in the twilight
To guide and harbor me
A blazing, brilliant diamond
To sparkle endlessly

[chorus]
Love shines
As bright as the sun in the summer sky
Love shines
Twinkling like stars on a winter night...

[bridge]
Bright on bright
Sight beyond sight
Blinded by the glare of things we cannot see
Mesmerized
Hypnotized
Caught up in a whirlwind of a supernova dream

[chorus]
Love shines
As bright as the sun in the summer sky
Love shines
Twinkling like stars on a winter night
And through the dark from dusk 'til dawn
You're my candle burning strong
To light the way
And love shines, love shines, love shines on
