Sharing the Light


Today is HEADS - Shine

"Shine" just happens to be one of my favorite songs on so many levels. It's one that speaks to my spirit and makes me want to spread the happy because I tend to have a little extra to share most of the time. Not sure how I got this way, but I'm cool with happy.

I think we each bring to this world our own gifts to share, our own unique light to shine, and when darkness swallows the day, hopefully we've left behind a little of our light somewhere else and maybe have some that's been given to us by someone else, too. Yep, world peace and all of that. I'm super extra double crazy happy this week, so please forgive the sickeningly sweet happiness overload or just skim off as much as you'd like from the top to put in your cup. Or just ignore my waxing poetic and enjoy the song. Whatever makes gets you in touch with your happy (heh).



"Shine"
Collective Soul
(lyrics from here)

Give me a word
Give me a sign
Show me where to look
Tell what will I find ( will I find )
Lay me on the ground
Fly me in the sky
Show me where to look
Tell me what will I find ( will I find )

Oh, heaven let your light shine down (x4)

Love is in the water
Love is in the air
Show me where to go
Tell me will love be there ( love be there )
Teach me how to speak
Teach me how to share
Teach me where to go
Tell me will love be there ( love be there )

Oh, heaven let your light shine down (x4)

Im going to let it shine (x2)
Heavens little light gonna shine on me
Yea yea heavens little light gonna shine on me
Its gonna shine, shine on me
Its gonna shine, come on in shine

  2. It's always good to be happy. People should do it more often - take a piece of the 'shine' you talk about.
