Can’t you see
I’m trying to be
All that you
want of me

But it’s so cold now
It’s so dark here
What could I do
It’s not very clear


Shine a little light
Show us the way
Lead us to
a brighter day

Shine a little light
Show us the way
Lead us to a brighter day

If I’m a little light
You’re a little light
Together we are
So very bright

A little light here
A little light there
See the smiles
It’s so very clear



When we stand together as one,
there’s nothing that we cant do
so lets lead the way,
to a brighter day
and the whole world will join along

We can bring a brighter day
for everyone,
it’s only up to me and you
we can see it, we all believe it,
so let us shine our light right now..


Shine a little light
Show us the way
Lead us to
a brighter day

Shine a little light
Show us the way
Lead us to a brighter day
