Description
I wanted to do something different and did so many builds for the harmonies on this, it's almost a Phil Spector. I wanted to do an original song for my Birthday this year, but I was stuck for lyrics, so borrowed them from a previous reggae song I did a couple of years ago..... and this is how it turned out.... it's different alright ha ha.

Lyrics
Shine Your Light

1.
In each heart there is a light,
Just bring it forward keep it bright,
It’s the light of love Divine,
And that love is yours and mine.
2.
When you feel it you will know,
It gives a feeling that will glow,
Makes the heart feel nice and warm,
Everything around is calm.
(when you)

Chorus.
Shine your light make it bright,
Even lighting up the night,
Find that light, make it shine,
Brighter than the Sun.

3.
Nothing nicer you can do,
Than chase away somebody’s blues,
Lift them up like on a cloud,
It will make you feel so proud.
Chorus.


4.
Let that light shine from your smile,
So people see it from a mile,
You will see what that can do,
When they shine their light to you,
(when you)
Chorus.

5.
In each heart there is a light,
Just bring it forward keep it bright,
It’s the light of love Divine
And that love is yours and mine…
Outro. RPT. Chorus X2

Different in a good way .... dreamy guitar chords along with the build of strings and smooth subtle bass make a wonderful soundscape for the rich vocal build. Very catchy melody and a beautifully written song. Enjoyed this Maurice!
Cheers

Glad
you like it Stan.... not as dreamy as yours though LOL. I left it sounding jingly-jangly so that when it got to each verse there would be more sharpness or clarity as in 'the light'..... same with the lingering half spoken verses as opposed to the multi sung chorus.... thanks for the listen Stan, cheers M,

I wasn't sure initially
as it started rather loosely but then it started to really come together and when the harmonies hit it really lifted it to another level.

Wonderful lyrics Maurice.

Cheers

Yes Dick
in addition to my comments to Stan above, the chorus or light, is a bit like a magnet gathering up all the extraneous clutter and putting it in order symbolically, if that makes sense. Thanks for listening and giving that nod of approval, regards M

Shine your light...
And you do shine.

"Nothing nicer you can do,
Than chase away somebody’s blues,
Lift them up like on a cloud,"

Well said, Maurice... and well sung. This does have the layered build of a Spector production. Thanks...

A feel good song, Maurice. Never enough of them... The unique arrangement works well and the half-spoken verses provide an interesting contrast with the layered chorus. Happy Birthday, too. Kind regards, Peter.

Thanks Vic
I just wish I could get it down to a 'T' as you seem to do....all my songs are more or less an 'experiment' in the mixing process, but I thank you for this very magnanimous comment, regards M

Maurice Vizard...all the way.
You have an inimitable style, Maurice, one that's always a delight to hear. And the lyrics you've chosen/written speak to the positive, good things in the world. That's always a message worth singing about. Your arrangement (the swirling background) is somewhat different for you. I like it. Another Moviz hit, I'd say!

Incredible words
Actually masterful and so important, love the orchestration.
You sure have that gift of "feel good" ! The beat is infectious again really enjoy the violins, really adds to the feel. Harmony sounds terrific. Lots of stuff to delight the ears. But you really make the lyrics shine just like what the words try to say. Way to go. I would have to say it is almost impossible Maurice to go away from your songs with out putting a smile on any face !
