Lyrics: 

You shined your light

Despite tough times

Inspiring us all

You shined your light

No matter what

Defying all the odds

I hope that we’ve all learned

The lessons left behind

To smile and laugh

And every day to live

Life pure and kind

I hope we won’t forget

The lessons left behind

To smile and laugh

And every day to live

Life unresigned

You shined your light

Despite such pain

Uplifting all our souls

You shined your light

Through thick and thin

Resisting fear’s stronghold

I hope that we’ve all learned

The lessons left behind

To smile and laugh

And every day to live

Life pure and kind

I hope we won’t forget

The lessons left behind

To smile and laugh

And every day to live

Life unresigned

Your light will shine

On all of us

A bright and loving glow

Your light will shine

Forever now

And through it we will grow

I hope that we’ve all learned

The lessons left behind

To smile and laugh

And every day to live

Life pure and kind

I hope we won’t forget

The lessons left behind

To smile and laugh

And every day to live

Life unresigned

a woman with a strong Broadway soprano would be ideal for this showstopper. if you dont find one by mid september, id like to take a crack at it, but id shift it into a lower gear, give it a kurt weill spin perhaps.. beautiful composing as always,

Really pretty -- probably more suited for a female vocal (I think Georgie @Jibbidy34 could rock this but she's probably not available at the moment). I'm still willing to give it a whirl if you wish?

What a pretty song. The lyric is wonderfully positive and "You shined your light" is a great hook. I like how you rotate the line after "to smile and laugh every day to live..." Very expansive. The music is wonderfully expressive and highlights the hook and message so gently and positively! Great collab!
