Give me a word, give me a sign
Show me where to look, tell me what will I find
(What will I find?)
Lay me on the ground, fly me in the sky
Show me where to look, tell me what will I find
(What will I find?)

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Oh, heaven let your light shine down
Oh, heaven let your light shine down
Oh, heaven let your light shine down
Oh, heaven let your light shine down

Love is in the water, love is in the air
Show me where to look, tell me will love be there
(Will love be there?)
Teach me how to speak, teach me how to share
Teach me where to go, tell me will love be there
(Will love be there?)

Oh, heaven let your light shine down
Oh, heaven let your light shine down
Oh, heaven let your light shine down
Oh, heaven let your light shine down

Give me a word, give me a sign
Show me where to look, tell me what will I find
(What will I find?)
Lay me on the ground, fly me in the sky
Show me where to look, tell me what will I find
(What will I find?)

I'm going to let it shine, I'm going to let it shine
Heavens little light gonna shine on me
Yeah yeah, heavens little light gonna shine on me
Shine, shine on me, shine, come on and shine

    I hear this as a desire to recapture some sort of faith. A willingness to change for the better while fearing what that change will bring. There is the deep understanding for the need to improve (teach me how to speak, teach me how to share) yet an uncertainity of it's outcome, (tell me will love be there? ).
