The Eternal Light

JACKSON 5 "Joyful Jukebox Music"
Mother earth told the people That the cold nights can be warm Just get along with your brother (it's the shelter from the storm) If you're standing in the sunshine But still out in the rain Let your heart strike a match (cause love lights the flame) [Chorus:] Let it shine so bright The eternal light Let it burn forever and ever Let love bring us together Let it shine so bright The eternal light Let us join our hands together Make a chain that bonds forever Motionless people gather dust Stand in the rain and you'll rust Let's try to show compassion It's the time for us to learn There will be a better tomorrow Our reward is love in return [Chorus]

Black Star

CARCASS "Reek Of Putrefaction"
(Music: Regadas) (Lyrics: Walker) Black star, jewel of the night Black star, burning bright Magnificent sun, a beacon burning Five pointed coal, a guide eternal Black star, five pointed coal Black star, the cosmic soul Shining opaque, celestial furnace Glittering dark, a sun in mourning Black star, where light never shines Black star won't you be my guide? A dead sun for where the light never shines Shine on... Twinkle, twinkle black star Shine on... Black star, darken the skies Forever burn, never to die An ebony flame, a sun infernal Nemesis of the night, my own dark angel Black star, jewel of the night Black star, so cruel, so bright A glorious sun, with warmth so healing Glittering dark, a sun in mourning Black star, where light never shines Black star won't you be my guide? A dead sun for where the light never shines Shine on... Twinkle, twinkle black star Shine on... black star (lead) Shine on... Twinkle, twinkle black star Shine on...

Soul Light

Jackie Lomax
Soul light - shine it one more time on me Soul light - show me how free I can be Don't leave me in the darkness, With no-one in command. Don't leave me in the wilderness A friend would lend a hand. Soul light - shine it one more time on me Soul light - show me how free I can be I'm all filled up with sadness It's drownin' my soul inside. Shine that ray of gladness Dryin' up the tears I cried. Please don't leave me here at the crossroads With no place left to turn. Don't you leave me with this heavy load You know I got a lot to learn. Soul light - shine it one more time on me Soul light - show me how free I can be Don't leave me in the darkness With no-one in command. Don't you leave me in this wilderness A friend would lend a hand. Soul light - shine it one more time on me Soul light - show me how free I can be. Soul light - shining in the darkness Soul light - shining in the darkness.

Shadow Of Doubt

BONNIE RAITT "Longing In Their Hearts"
Just another homesick child Tired of running wild Ready to stand trial and move on Though I'm guilty in your sight Have some mercy tonight I can't make it through the fight alone Oh but lord, no don't make it easy Keep me working till I work it on out Just please shine enought light on me Til I'm free from this shadow of doubt Keep me out of the Shadow of Doubt As I try to make some sense Of this world I'm up against Well I know my best defense is your love When the struggle gets insane And the lesson's full of pain Keep me calling out your name with Love Oh but lord, no don't make it easy Keep me workin' till I work it on out Just please won't you shine enough light on me Til I'm free from this shadow of Doubt Well I whisper in the dark From the bottom of my heart And I'm searchin for one star to shine I will shout from mountain high And I'll reach into the sky Til you open up my eyes so blind Oh but lord no, Don't make it easy Keep me workin' til I work it on out Just please, please shine enough light on me 'Til I'm free from this shadow of doubt keep me out of the Shadow.....
