"Shine It on Me" as written by and Jimmy Webb....
You're still the best person I ever knew
There were a thousand little things
That I was always just about to
Say to you
But now the time it grows shorter
For the speeches;
Let me leave you with a line

Might help you pass the time
Sometime.
You might as well smile
Ain't no tears gonna drown the rain
Keeps on falling
You might as well smile
Ain't no pain gonna change what
Still remains
You might as well maintain, babe,
Protect your sanity, your sanity, and
Shine it on, babe.
Shine It On Me.

I remember times when you'd touch me
And you'd, you'd freeze my spine.
We were looking in the mirror at the time
I got confused and thought your eyes were mine

Might help you pass the time sometime.
You might as well smile
Ain't no tears gonna drown the rain
Keeps on falling
You might as well smile
Ain't no pain gonna change what
Still remains
You might as well regain, babe
Your lost serenity, serenity, and
Shine it on, babe.
Shine It On Me.
