Although the things you've done, I wouldn't criticize
I guess, you had your way
You see, I gotta make you understand
I know it sounds a foolish thing to say
But it don't matter baby 'cause today's another day

You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life
And let me see

Remember, tonight we're gonna run till dawn
Remember, tonight we're gonna say
We'll never stop, we got a good thing goin' on
I know you've heard it all before
But I really need you girl, every day I need you more

You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life
And let me see

Can you understand? Yes, I understand
Can you feel it's right? I know it is
Will you be the same? I'll do it all again

It's been a year now and it's getting so much better
You came home without a word
Though everybody said, "You'll soon forget her"
They couldn't see and they just didn't understand
And lookin' in the mirror there were fools at either hand

You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life
And let me see

Can you understand? Yes, I understand
Can you feel it's right? I know it is
Will you be the same? I'll do it all again

How many days had I been waiting there to tell you
I really can't believe
We're walkin' out into the world tonight
We'll do it all again until the break of light
And the feelin' in your heart will soon be shinin' in your eyes

You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life
And let me see

You shine a little love on my life
(Shine all day)
You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life
And let me see

You shine a little love on my life
(Shine)
You shine a little love on my life
(Be careful)
You shine a little love on my life
And let me see

    This is jesus' love song to me. I have been praying for understanding of god's love. This song, an old jazzercise song i used to teach like 7 years ago randomly started playing on my iphone. Listening to the lyrics speaks of god's impractical & lavish love he has for us that gets lost among all the "religion". My answer, "yes i understand. Yes i feel it's right. I'd do it all again. You shone your love in my life & let me see you! "
