10000 Maniacs – Shining Light lyrics

Something was pulling me without knowing what was leading me on:
Your shining light.
But you're unaware your shining light is even on.
In my darkest hour the only way to bring the dawn was your shining light.
And I take a chance and see it all through your eyes.
Like with a little glance when you take me by surprise
By lighting up the mystery,
Free me from my history and show me where to draw the line,
And you don't even know that it shines.
You know I will always run to your shining light.
I'm not worried now about flying too close to the sun.
When December skies are cold,
Though it takes me by surprise.
I won't abuse it so please just let it glow behind your smile.
Let me feel the warmth like a little child who understands your glance,
Let me use it,
And I take a chance and I see it all through your eyes
