James TaylorShed A Little Light

Let us turn our thoughts today To Martin Luther King And recognize that there are ties between us, All men and women living on the Earth. Ties of hope and love, Sister and brotherhood, That we are bound together In our desire to see the world Become a place in which our children Can grow free and strong. We are bound together by the task That stands before us And the road that lies ahead. We are bound and we are bound. There is a feeling like the clenching of a fist There is a hunger in the center of the chest There is a passage through the darkness And the mist And though the body sleeps The heart will never rest Shed a little light, oh Lord, So that we can see, Just a little light, oh Lord. Want to stand it on up, Stand it on up, oh Lord, Want to walk it on down, Shed a little light, oh Lord. Can't get no light from the dollar bill, Don't give me no light from a TV screen. When I open my eyes I want to drink my fill From the well on the hill, Do you know what I mean? Shed a little light, oh Lord, So that we can see, Just a little light, oh Lord. Want to stand it on up, Stand it on up, oh Lord, Want to walk it on down, Shed a little light, oh Lord. There is a feeling like the clenching of a fist, There is a hunger in the center of the chest. There is a passage through the darkness And the mist And though the body sleeps The heart will never rest. Oh, Let us turn our thoughts today To Martin Luther King And recognize that there are ties between us. All men and women living on the Earth, Ties of hope and love, Sister and brotherhood.
