IN THE DEPTHS OF THE NIGHT,
I AM SEARCHING FOR LIGHT,
SEARCHING FOR SOMETHING,
THAT I WILL SOON FIND,
LOVE EVERLASTING.. ETERNAL PEACE,
GRACE..AND FORGIVENESS,
ALL PAID OUT FOR ME,

(CHORUS)
SO SHINE..SHINE, LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE,
SHINE..SHINE, LET YOUR LOVE SHINE,
SHINE..SHINE, LET YOUR GRACE SHINE ON ME,
(REPEAT CHORUS)

IN THE COOL OF THE SPRING,
WHEN EVERYTHING SEEMS,
BEAUTIFUL, PERFECT, AND LIFE-CHANGING,
SHOWERS STILL COME,
AND DAY TURNS TO NIGHT,
STILL I WILL PRAISE YOU,
THE GIVER OF LIFE,

(BACK TO CHORUS)
BRIDGE:
AT THE END OF MY DAYS,
WHEN MY BREATH BECOMES WEAK,
STILL I WILL PRAISE YOU,
WITH EACH BREATH THAT I BREATHE,

(BACK TO CHORUS)

Hi Brandon! I really like your lyrics! I feel like in the beginning where it says "Grace... And forgiveness, all paid out for me" You could change it to "Grace.. and forgiveness, all /planned/ out for me" I think that could flow a little better. Also, in the last bridge, you are very repetitive in the word "breath/breathe" which is fine, but you could re look that and search some synonyms that might fit better.

Great lyrics, keep up the good work!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENTS, SORRY I'M NOT HERE MUCH ANYMORE BETWEEN WORK AND TRYING TO START SCHOOL RIGHT NOW. I REALLY LIKE YOUR SUGGESTION ON "ALL PLANNED OUT FOR ME". I'M NOT SO SURE ON THE BRIDGE THOUGH, IT IS REPETITIVE I AGREE BUT HAVEN'T FOUND ANYTHING THAT GOES BETTER AND MATCHES MY HEART FOR THIS SONG. BUT I AM ALWAYS OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS , I REALLY APPRECIATE IT.

I love where this is going. I tend to write country......but when reading these........this struck me. It's just a suggestion.......so please take it as so. :)

AT THE END OF MY DAYS,
Until the last breath that I take,
STILL I WILL PRAISE YOU,
For the life that you gave.....


Or possibly:

AT THE END OF MY DAYS,
WHEN MY Body BECOMES WEAK,
STILL I WILL PRAISE YOU,
Until the last time THAT I BREATHE,


Polish her till she shines........she's gonna be a beauty! Good luck! :cool:

Brandon, this flows pretty well. I'd suggest a couple of small tweaks. Keep or sweep. :)

WITH EACH BREATH THAT I BREATHE, (Suggest "Each time that I breathe" as the last line. Or "Though I can no longer speak". This implies the singer is praising in his heart.)

Thank You for your ideas I'm still trying to figure it out, I like the idea:
AT THE END OF MY DAYS,
WITH EACH BREATH THAT I take,
STILL I WILL PRAISE YOU,
For the life that you gave.....

still not sure if I like it better than the original or not.

Good job on this song, "Shine." Your focus (God) is right on the mark and there is good flow to the words. I look forward to reading all your lyrics!
