Ross, Diana - One Shining Moment Lyrics

Tell me who, what, when,
Where did it start?
Tell me when, where
How did you get in my heart?
I feel your love washing over me
In waves of emotion so strong
I want to say while I've got the chance
In the words of this song

You're my one shining moment
You are all my dreams come true
Honey, you're my one shining moment
And if I never have another
I'm glad that I've known you

You fill up for me all the empty spaces
All the pain I ever felt, you've erased it
Is it any wonder? No way
That I'm growing fonder every day
There's a freedom that I never knew
and it's all because of you, honey

You're my one shining moment
You are all my dreams come true
Honey, you're my one shining moment
And if I never have another
I'm glad that I've known you

I wake up with you on my mind
You light up my day
There is nothing better I can find
Oh, my love, I'm so proud
That I can say, hey
All my dreams wrapped
Into one under the sun, honey

Honey, you're my one shining moment
And if I never have another
I'm glad that I've known you
If I never have another
I'm glad that I've known you

Shining moment

    Love how they kept working on her and she's not distracted,,, its all Microphone and love. Miss.Ross Rules

  23. Brian Woods

    Diana climbed that note near the end of the song was up there ,she usually does not go that high ,Ashford & Simpson said Diana doesn't like to hear herself sing that high tho she could , she just personally doesn't like the sound of her voice at that range , and Ashford ,& Simpson said she sounds great, up in her upper registers .Ashford told Diana that when you really start too cooking ,Diana didn't agree with him ,and that's why we don't hear her sing up there often .Ashford& Simpson said they had to really wrestle with Diana to get her to use her upper register. I agree with them she does sound great hitting those notes , but also agree with Diana ,her style affords her to be able to sing in those ranges if she wants sort of like punctuate her singing giving fresh hightened excitement to her singing

    this song man! when I bought the album well CD. and heard this song I went omfg then Lord , waiting in the wings I love this lady she her music literally saved my life, when I was a youngster I was abused In every way imaginable. I wanted to die and tried several attempt suicide. well one day I was in my funk . I had just grabbed a handful of pills I took from my neighbor medicine cabinet. as I walked through the house my mom was playing " the boss " album and I heard a song that saved my life it was " im in the world " man I wept not because I was sad no . there's a line in the song that says I'll take my chances cause it ain't about leaving . man I never knew anyone had questions or felt hurt like I did and right there was Diana saying hey boy I feel you but you got to stay

    John Too

    Wow.that was truly serendipitous.timing was perfect.your mom just happened to be playing that album and the right song came on at the right moment.


    My mum was a huge Diana Ross fan and chose to have this played at her funeral.

  97. song serenade

    Love the ending where she steps off the stage in those heels,and that body fitting outfit and jacket.Just beautiful.!!!

    Posh Girl

    me too! that part is awesome!! elegant and class

  98. song serenade

    I think if Diana Ross wasn,t a singing legend,she could have been an international supermodel.She is the epitome of class,loveliness and elegance.But I,m glad she chose music,cause we,re all the happier for it.

    Brian Woods

    song serenade I always thought of the same , because her movement in front of the camera , the camera loves her , her style her body shape , the way she moves in her clothing the way the clothes fall on her all of that speaks high fashion model if weren't a singer , print , catalog far and away stunning

  99. Guy Will

    hated the styling here that short ass wig was horrible but the song nd the voice are perfect as usual


    +Guy Will That's Miss Ross' real hair, not a wig.

    Guy Will

    nope. wig.


    @Guy Will
    No. Hair.:)
    That's how she wore it back then, when she was "resting" it, between weaves, which is why she still has all of her "edges" after 50+ years of wearing wigs and weaves. She wore her hair this way in her "Gone" video, too.
    Good evening.:)

    this song is and will always be special to me as it came on the radio which was placed in the labor ward when my 14 yr old daughter was waiting to give birth to my still born grand daughter Sophie, I remember looking at my poor brave exhausted daughter with floods of tears streaming down my face wishing I could take away all of her heartache and pain and thinking yes, you are my one shining moment , because she was so young and so brave and so dignified dealing with what most adults would not have coped with , and it was nothing to do with her upbringing she ended up in that situation because she had a good upbringing it was more to do with a stinking pig taking advantage of a child who walked Scott free while my brave girl was left to pick up the pieces which the authorities were fully of aware of as we a parents reported him umpteen times all to no avail .
    she as since had three beautiful daughters Angel ceryn and maddie but Sophie will forever stay precious in our hearts and minds , sleep tight little one xxxxxx

    Trixey Labelle

    I've just read your comment from a couple of years ago and it's heart breaking i couldn't even try to imagine what you your family and more so your poor daughter went through and at such a young fragile age..And it's lovely to know she's now a mum to your three precious grandbains, God bless all of you, and God bless little baby Sophie up in Heaven.

    Eileen Ward

    that evil piece of scum will get his punishment 1 day god will be the 1 to judge him I wish your little girl nothing but hope & happiness people like him will be judged 1 day I no how it feels cause it also happened to some 1 really close to me but turned out to be her father that done it to her and the whole court room let him walk free so I no what it feels like & may your little granddaughter rest in piece she is in heaven now god bless her
