My shining star

when the storm was raging and the sky was black
your light came to me in a bar
and it brought me to my journey’s end
you are my shining star

can I stay with you my shining star
everything that I am seems to be where you are
now the sun is eclipsed
’cos here you are
you are my shining star

{ooh-ooh etc.}
can I stay with you my shining star
everything that I am seems to be where you are
now the sun is eclipsed
’cos here you are
you are my shining star

{ooh-ooh etc.}
can I stay with you my shining star
everything that I am seems to be where you are
now the sun is eclipsed
’cos here you are
you are my shining
you are my shining
you are my shining star

ah-oh
you are my shining star
