"Heartlight" as written by Burt Bacharach, Neil Diamond and Carole Bayer Sager....
Come back again
I want you to stay next time
'Cause sometimes the world ain't kind
When people get lost like you and me
I just made a friend
A friend is someone you need
But now that he had to go away
I still feel the words that he might say

Turn on your heartlight
Let it shine wherever you go
Let it make a happy glow
For all the world to see

Turn on your heartlight
In the middle of a young boy's dream
Don't wake me up too soon
Gonna take a ride across the moon
You and me

He's lookin' for home
'Cause everyone needs a place
And home's the most excellent place of all
And I'll be right here if you should call me

Turn on your heartlight
Let it shine wherever you go
Let it make a happy glow
For all the world to see

Turn on your heartlight
In the middle of a young boy's dream
Don't wake me up too soon
Gonna take a ride across the moon
You and me

And home's the most excellent place of all
And I'll be right here if you should call me

Turn on your heartlight
Let it shine wherever you go
Let it make a happy glow
For all the world to see

Turn on your heartlight
In the middle of a young boy's dream
Don't wake me up too soon
Gonna take a ride across the moon
You and me

Turn on your heartlight now
Turn on your heartlight now

    General CommentNeil Diamond wrote this immediately after watching Steven Spielberg's E.T. the Extra Terrestrial.

    "In the middle of a young boy's dream", "Gonna take a ride across the moon" and "He's lookin' for a home" reference the film. And of course, the phrase heartlight. It's just ashame that Reeces Pieces weren't referenced...delicious Pieces.
