Shine on,

shine on my friend.


You are my sky

and you are beautiful.


Shine on,

shine on my friend.


When the clouds cry,

I think of you.


Shine on,

shine on my friend.


The rain makes me think

of the tears you've caused me,

of how strong you can be,

and how sometimes

that strength breaks down.


Shine on,

shine on my friend.


The lightning reminds me

of how much I miss you.


Shine on,

shine on my friend.


Does any of this sweet talk

make sense outside my head?


I am forced to wonder

what force of nature you are to me.

Are you the sun

or the rain

or the wind

on my face?


Shine on,

shine on my friend.


I have so much to say

and the sky is my limit.

Some words seem to come

but nothing fits you right.

I'll sit here alone

and watch the moon and the stars.

My friend and I,

we are under the same night sky.


Shine on,

shine on my friend.


Thank God for the lights

that stay on in the night.


Shine on,

shine on my love.
