Marc Anthony – One Shining Moment lyrics

River of days
Ocean of night
We drift away
All of our lives

Years I sailed
Many miles from shore
Until I looked
And saw your light


One shining moment
The instant I looked at your face
One shining moment
No lifetime alone could replace
A moment is all it takes
One shining moment

Gently we touched
Thunder I hear
Wanting so much
To hold you near

Lost in time
I can see that I
Falling through space
And no more fear

Repeat chorus

Years I sailed
Many miles from shore
Until I looked and saw your light

Repeat chorus
