​Light of the World

This song is by Chris LeDoux and appears on the album Haywire (1994).

In a lonely all night diner on a rainy city street
A girl eats at the counter with a suitcase at her feet
And the waitress looks her over and she knows that she can't pay
So when the girl slips out the door she looks the other way

There's a small light in the dark night
Human kindness deep inside us
If you see it in somebody's eyes
There's no reason to be so surprised
Let it shine on, it's only the light of the world

In an empty Greyhound station an old man stands alone
He counts out all his money to buy a ticket home
And the agent says he's got enough and puts the money in the drawer
Then he reaches in his pocket and puts in a dollar more

There's a small light in the dark night
Human kindness deep inside us
If you see it in somebody's eyes
There's no reason to be so surprised
Let it shine on, it's only the light of the world

On a dark deserted highway a boy holds out his thumb
Two headlights they light up his face as he turns his collar up
And the trucker he goes right on by as the snow starts comin' down
But then five miles on down the road he stops and turns around

Let it shine on, let it shine on, let it shine on

There's a small light in the dark night
Human kindness deep inside us
If you see it in somebody's eyes
There's no reason to be so surprised
Let it shine on, it's only the light of the world

There's a small light in the dark night
Human kindness deep inside us
