(Gary Levox/Joe Don Rooney/Jay Demarcus)

I was lost in darkness and sinking sand
Well I was barely nothing, a broken man
But you picked up the pieces of my
Heart in your hand
Then you came and showed to me
Love's second chance

Shine on, shine on, shine on me
Whenever something's missing
You're exactly what I need
Your love has shown me the light
And now I finally see
So shine on, shine on, shine on me, yeah

Lord knows that I'm not perfect but I sure do try
And I see the man that I can be in your eyes
Well there are times I still get lost in yesterday
But you put the past behind me and
You light my way

Shine on, shine on, shine on me
Whenever something's missing
You're exactly what I need
Your love has shown me the light
And now I finally see
So shine on, shine on, shine on me, yeah

Shine on (let your love shine)
Shine on (on me)
Shine all your love on me, yeah
(Your love on me)
Shine all your love on me, yeah

Shine on, shine on, shine on me
Whenever something's missing
You're exactly what I need
Your love has shown me the light
And now I finally see
So shine on, shine on, shine on me, yeah

Shine on, shine on, shine on me
Won't you keep on shining, yeah
Won't you keep on shining your love
Down on me, baby
Won't you keep on shining, yeah
Won't you keep on shining your love down on me
Yeah, you're exactly what I need, baby
Yeah, you are
