The Book Of Right-On

Original and similar lyrics
We should shine a light on, a light on And the book of right-on's right-on, it was right-on We should shine a light on, a light-on And the book of right-on's right-on, it was right-on I killed my dinner with karate Kick 'em in the face, taste the body Shallow work is the work that I do Do you want to sit at my table My fighting fame is fabled And fortune finds me fit and able And you do say - oh oh That you do pray - oh oh And you say that you're okay And do you want to run with my pack Do you want to ride on my back Pray that what you lack does not distract And even when you run through my mind Something else is in front, oh, you're behind And I don't have to remind you to stick with your kind And you do say - oh oh That you do pray - oh oh And you say that you're okay And even when you touch my face You know your place Yeah and even when you touch my face You know your place We should shine a light on, a light on And the book of right-on's right-on, it was right-on We should shine a light on, a light on The book of right-on's right-on, it was right-on

Precious Angel

BOB DYLAN "Slow Train Coming"
Precious angel, under the sun How was I to know you'd be the one To show me I was blinded, to show me I was gone How weak was the foundation I was standing upon Now there's spiritual warfare and flesh and blood breaking down Ya either got faith or ya got unbelief and there ain't neutral ground The enemy is subtle, how be it we are so deceived When the truth's in our hearts and we still don't believe Shine you light, shine your light on me Shine you light, shine your light on me Shine you light, shine your light on me Ya know I just couldn't make it by myself I'm a little too blind to see. My so called friends have fallen under a spell They look me squarely in the eye and they say, 'Well all is well'' Can they imagine the darkness that will fall from on high When men will beg God to kill them and they won't be able to die. Sister, lemme tell you about a vision that I saw You were drawing water for your husband, you were suffering under the law You were telling him about Buddha, you were telling him about Mohammed in the same breath You never mentioned one time the Man who came and died a criminal's death. Shine you light, shine your light on me Shine you light, shine your light on me Shine you light, shine your light on me Ya know I just couldn't make it by myself I'm a little too blind to see. Precious angel, you believe me when I say What God has given to us no man can take away We are covered in blood girl, you know our forefathers were slaves Let us hope they've found mercy in their bone-filled graves. You're the queen of my flesh, girl, you're my woman, you're my delight You're the lamb of my soul, girl, and you touch up the night But there's violence in the eyes, girl, so let us not be enticed On the way out of Egypt, through Etopoia, to the judgement hall of Christ. Shine you light, shine your light on me Shine you light, shine your light on me Shine you light, shine your light on me Ya know I just couldn't make it by myself I'm a little too blind to see.

A Face That Shone

Card Michael
He ate the bread of heaven Drank water from the rock And the grumbling children followed Like a misbegotten flock He climbed up on a mountain They couldn't even touch Who'd have known that one encounter Could have ever meant so much And up upon that high place In a cleft of solid stone His face was set on fire As the God of Glory shone He alone had seen it And had lived to tell the tale But because they feared the fire He had to hide behind a veil A face that shone with the radiance of the Father Though it had known and endured dark desert days A face that shone with the glory of Another So the prophet would discover As the glory was fading away He was the Bread from Heaven He would be the smitten Rock He had twelve confused disciples They were his bewildered flock When he climbed upon the mountain He took Peter, James and John In the face of pending glory They soon began to yawn As he prayed while they were sleeping He was transfigured into Light His face a flash of lightning His clothes so burning bright So Moses finally saw the face Before he'd hidden from Then came a voice from heaven This is my beloved Son The face that shone is the Glory of the Father And he had known from the start that it was so The face that shone had let the light shine out of darkness And we're changed into His likeness As we gaze upon the Son But you and me we tend to flee from shining faces We see the glow and then we know that we're undone They shine His light into out emptiest of spaces With their bright and shining faces Reflect the radiance of the Son The face that shone is the Glory of the Father And he had known from the start that it was so The face that shone had let the light shine out of darkness And we're changed into His likeness As we gaze upon the Son

Come Shine A Light

JACK SAVORETTI "Before The Storm"
Dressing up in black and blue like I have been so many times before Every moment I spare with out you leaves me wanting more If I close my eyes I can picture you here in my arms Man I would kill just to keep you safe out of harm Come shine a light on me Your love is more than I'll need This one is not for sale As far as I can see Come shine a light on me Cigarettes and Alcohol singing songs just to pass the time Everything I ever want never ends up being mine So I just get real high catch your eye on a shooting star Still remember the first time I saw you alone at the bar - all right Come shine a light on me Your love is more than I'll need This one is not for sale As far as I can see Come shine a light on me I can make my fist I can fight till I get what I need But I'd rather be loving you - you loving me - all right Come shine a light on me Your love is more than I'll need This one is not for sale As far as I can see Come shine a light on me Come shine a light on me Come shine a light on me Come shine a light on me

Outside

AQUALUNG "Memory Man"
He wants to give but he'll give himself away She wants to take but she's taking all she can They've got it all figured out He wants to listen but there so much more to say She wants to shout it out loud but she doesn't She doesn't open her mouth Had enough of crying When she's happy and smiling when she sad Had enough of wondering What became of all the dreams he had Are they out there somewhere Baby don't you stay there on the inside Together we can make it on the outside You and me on the outside Can you remember the way it used to feel We'd run as fast and as far as we wanted to go But then the walls closed in And I was one step forward and two steps back Two steps forward and three steps back Oh it's all too much So take my hand we'll jump together Baby I won't leave you on the inside Together we can make it on the outside You and me on the outside You and me on the outside On the outside Shine your light on me and I'll shine my light on you Shine my light on you if you shine your light on me Shine your light on me and I'll shine my light on you On the outside On the outside On the outside Baby I won't leave you on the inside Together we can make it on the outside You and me on the outside You and me on the out (yeah) You and me on the outside
