about

I always liked Shake, Rattle And Roll — especially the line "When you wear that dress, the sun comes shinin' through..." This is a more elevated take on that. People say love will save you all the time — it has become a cliche, but, like many cliches, it's the absolute truth.

lyrics

A Certain Light

You're more than a lover
You're more than a friend
You stand in a certain light and
Your beauty never ends

Might've ended different
Might not've been so good
but you came through with every
Single thing you said you would

And I'm the lucky man
I guess I backed into something fine
You stand in a certain light
And I see the world shine

And how it might've ended
I won't entertain the thought
I had my net all set to catch
And I wind up getting caught

Don't know how I got here
All I know is I can't leave
You stand in a certain light
Finally something to believe

Could've turned the corner
And never seen your face
And wound up with somebody else
In a whole other kind of place

You're more than a lover
You're more than a friend
You stand in a certain light and
Your beauty never ends
