about

Merry Xmas! Sharing the holiday track I’ve been working on the last week... A soft start to this Pet Lion project, but here we go. Thanks to Alex Silver for the guitar and ears (you’ll be hearing more of our collaborations soon) and to Daegan McNeaney for editing the video (shot in isolation lol). It’s been a wild year, and I miss you all. Feel free to share if you want, and the video is over on my YouTube. Thx for listening! xx

lyrics

SHINE A LIGHT
V1: I was lost, out in the cold Am – G – Em – F
A thousand miles in the dark and the snow
Without a heart, baby, leading me home
Christmas was a time, I was alone

V2: Then you moved and I saw the spark Am – G – Em – F
You called my name, I fell back to the start
The way you shine, baby, opened my heart
And now Christmas is a time of lights in the dark

CH: I’ll be the one you belong to now F Em – G – Am
I’ll be the stars up above you now
I’ll be the light you shine on me now
And so it goes, so it goes, so it goes...yeah F G

V3: Late at night, when I feel the load Am – G – Em – F
I call your name at the side of the road
You’re the star, baby, leading me home
And now Christmas is a time when we’re not alone,
Yeah, Christmas is a time when we’re not alone

CH: I’ll be the one you belong to now F Em – G – Am
I’ll be the stars up above you now
I’ll be the light you shine on me -

B: ‘Cause Christmas is a time F6
Where we put it on the line, baby` F6/G - G7
I can feel your light shining Am7
Every single night G/B
Tell me why we gotta fight it Dm7
If our hearts can be decided, Cmaj7/E
Yeah, and I can feel your light, baby F6
Let me shine a light on you F6/G - G

Let me shine a light on you Am – G – Em – F

V4: I was lost, wandering alone Am – G – Em – F
I felt your heart, leading me home...

CH: I’ll be the one you belong to now F Em – G – Am
I’ll be the stars up above you now
I’ll be the light you shine on me now
I’ll be the one you belong to -

‘Cause Christmas is a time F Em – G – Am
Where we put it on the line, baby
I can feel your light shining
Every single night
Tell me why we gotta fight it
If our hearts can be decided,
Yeah, and I can feel your light, baby
Let me shine a light on you

Let me shine a light on you F Em – G – Am etc
