LYRIC: Shine by Joni Mitchell

Let your little light shine 

Let your little light shine
Shine on the dazzling darkness
That restores us in the deep sleep
Shine on what we throw away
And what we keep


Shine on Reverend Pearson
Who threw away
The vain of God
kept Dickens and Rembrandt and Beethoven
And fresh-plowed-sod
Shine on good earth, good air, good water
And a safe place
For kids to play
Shine on bombs, exploding
Half a mile away


Let your little light shine
Let your little light shine
Shine on world-wide traffic jams
Honking day and night
Shine on another a**hole
Passing on the right!
Shine on the red-light runners
Busy talking on their cell phones
Shine on the Catholic Church
And the prisons that it owns


Shine on all Churches
They all love less and less
Shine on a hopeful girl
In a dreamy dress


Let your little light shine
Let your little light shine
Shine on good humor
Shine on good will
Shine on lousy leadership
Licensed to kill
Shine on dying soldiers
In patriotic pain
Shine on mass destructin
In some God's name!
Shine on the pioneers
Those seekers of mental health
Craving simplicity
They traveled invward
Past themselves...
May all their little lights shine
