When you walk into the edge of those
Dark and lonely woods and when I ask how was your day
And you answer not so good
And when nothing seems to be working out
Quite the way it should; I will shine the light.
When the skies up above you fill
With grey and stormy clouds.
And there's not a single face you know
In the maddening crowd.
When you know that you don't make your way
But you just can't see how. I will shine the light.
I will shine the light.
I will shine the light.
I will hold you in my arms
Until everything's alright.

I will shine the light
When your worries they won't let you sleep
And rob you of your days...
And you've looked in all directions but you
Still can't find your way.
When you just need someone to remind you that it's
All gonna be ok I will shine the light.
I will shine the light.

I will shine the light.
When you're staring down your demons
Weighing in your darkest night
I will shine the light.
Sometimes we jump into the great unknown.
Sorrows we all will have to walk alone.
Waiting there in the end is a heart that calls you a friend.
That's me clapping the loudest welcoming you home.

So when your heart is heavy like a stone
From carrying it's load
And you look into the mirror and see someone you don't know
When the shadows are closing in on you like a hand around your throat
I will shine the light.
I will shine the light.
When you've given into your fears
When you've lost your will to fight
Let me know what I can do
Let me try to make it right.
I will shine the light.
I will shine the light
