"Shine a Little Love" as written by and Jeff Lynne....
Although the things you've done I wouldn't criticize
I guess you had your way
You see I gotta make you understand
I know it sounds a foolish thing to say
But it don't matter baby 'cos' today's another day

You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life and let me see

Remember, tonight we're gonna run 'till dawn
Remember, tonight we're gonna say it
We'll never stop we got a good thing goin' on
I know you've heard it all before
But I really need you darlin' every day I need you more

You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life and let me see

Can you understand (yes I understand)
Can you feel it's right (I know it is)
Will you be the same (I'll do it all again)

It's been a year now and it's getting so much better
You came home without a word
Though everybody said you'll soon forget her
They couldn't see and they just didn't understand
And lookin' in the mirror there were fools at either hand

You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life and let me see

Can you understand (yes I understand)
Can you feel it's right (I know it is)
Will you be the same (I'll do it all again)

How many days had I been waiting there to tell you
I really can't believe
We're walkin' out into the world tonight
We'll do it all again until the break of light
And the feelin' in your heart will soon be shinin' in your eyes

You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life and let me see

You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life and let me see

You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life and let me see

    General CommentOh, it's an extremely disco-ish song.

    Jeff Lynne has remarked that the title of this album, "Discovery", could also be read as "Disco Very."

    General CommentJeff discusses how when you are in love with someone, and you go through rough times there is always a positive outcome. As the day goes by the love increases and everything is left aside only for that special someone, you know? you just gotta do everything it takes even RUNNING TILL DAWN!

    My OpinionUgghh! Hate this song. My least favorite ELO song. Vapid and boring.
