Mraz, Jason - Shine Lyrics




Once upon a time there was a meeting of minds
The sun and the moon made a deal with the sky
One would take the morning and the other the night
Together they would blanket the world with light
But the moon had a shadow, he felt like a liar
The sun was the only one who carried the fire
The sun saw this, she kept on glowing
Bound to the moon, never saying, "you owe me"

She said I'll shine on you (shine on you)
I will shine on you (shine on you)
I will shine on you (shine on you)
I will shine on you

I keep a lamp over you, glowing in my heart
To keep from tripping over troublesome thoughts in the dark
We ain't that different, we huddle underneath the same stars
I see who you really are
You're every creature, every man, every woman and child
You're the closest thing I'll ever get to knowing God
Like the sun to the moon, I'll send my love and light
A love like ours, it'll fill the whole sky

I will shine on you (shine on you)
I will shine on you (shine on you)
I will shine on you (shine on you)
I will shine on you
I will shine on you (shine on you)
I will shine on you (shine on you)
I will shine on you (shine on you)
I will shine, shine, shine on you

Think of the people that you love the most
Send them your light and hope it glows
Say I will shine on you, I will shine on you
No matter the distance, the space, or the time
Love travels in the speed of light
I will shine on you, I will shine on you
I will shine on you, I will shine on you

And if you forget we are the chosen ones
Turn your eyes to the attention of the morning sun
Wherever you go, however you move
The light is gonna shine directly to you
Let it shine on you (shine on you)
Let it shine on you (shine on you)
Let it shine on you (shine on you)
Yes I'm gonna shine on you
I will shine on you (shine on you)
I will shine on you (shine on you)
I will shine on you (shine on you)
I will shine, shine, shine on you

    Jason Mraz is easily one of the best musicians the world has ever seen. So many brilliant songs - perfect lyrics, incredible music. When his song starts playing, I literally stop whatever I'm doing, and the music completely takes me over.. everytime..
    Thank you Mr. Mraz. You beautiful, brilliant son of a gun!!!

  28. Stringman1950

    The mellotron feeds the cello which triggers the percussion and guitar and sitar counterpoint. Brilliant and mesmerizing. Thank you Mike Pinder and The Moody Blues for the mellotron. Thank you for the most famous mellotron song—Strawberry Fields Forever. This is an amazing performance that tips its hat to the past, yet stirs in the present. Fantastic production. I know I’m late to Mraz, but . . .

    Jay Say

    yep. second that. seen him twice and the second time @ Santa Barbara was spectacular. to me it was a spiritual experience.

  80. Lou Curelop

    Almost one year later and I am still LOVIN this song! This is song as a magical effect on me! Thank Mr. Mraz for the beautiful music I can't wait for the next cd as I love all that you do! :)

  85. Mel Chetty

    This song makes me so emotional. It touches my soul on a level that I've never experienced before. Thank you Jason for gracing South Africa with your mind blowing presence. We are truly blessed!

    Bonnie Dickason

    @Mel Chetty I feeit also

  86. Rudy Lee

    For Me.. This song should be Top 1 in Top 100 Billboard 2014 ! But the fact.. no one songs by Mraz (Yes Album) get in Top 100 Billboard.. I'm very disappointed !

    Jay Say

    @vincent esplana so true.

    Alex Garvin

    @vincent esplana I am not a religious man in the slightest and i feel like his music needs to be in the #1 spot. He's just got great musical and vocal talent.

    Manon Richard

    @vincent esplana  I would say Buddhist... a spiritual and wonderful person!

    Lou Curelop

    @Rudy Lee I couldn't agree more! This song is so beautiful it just permeates love of all kind. I wish he'd put this out as a single......

    Maxiii

    @Rudy Lee I dont think Jason gives a s*** about charts.He´s going his way without getting bought by big producers,and thats what makes him even greater.Cheers to one of his best songs!

  87. Lou Curelop

    Have I mentioned how much I love this song?! :D

  88. 김권석

    좆나 섬세하네...므라즈 같은..새끼...칭찬 입니다.
