This is a love song, which I wrote for my wife and my dear Annie dog (RIP).


under the sun, under the moon
you take a drag
shine a light on me
shine a light on you
i seize the moment
wait all day and breathe my skin
you close the door
the light shines right in
shines a light on you
i feel you coming
but i'm much better in the moment
when the day is dawning
my tears within
what could be better to be with you
shine at dawn, at dusk by the moon
what could be better to be with you
darlin' i'll shine for you
shine a light on me
