A full on chemical reaction

Roman candles that burn in the night,
Yeah, you are a shining light.
You lit a torch in the infinite,
Yeah, you are a shining light.
Yeah, you light up my life.

You have always been a thorn in their side,
But to me you’re a shining light.
You arrive and the night is alive,
Yeah, you are a shining light.
Yeah, you light up my life.

We made a connection,
A full on chemical reaction,
Brought by dark divine intervention,
Yeah, you are a shining light.
A constellation once seen,
Over Royal David’s city,
An epiphany you burn so pretty,
Yeah, you are a shining light.

You are a force
You are a constant source,
Yeah, you are a shining light.
Incandescent in the darkest night,
Yeah, you are a shining light.
My mortal blood I would sacrifice,
For you are a shining light.
Sovereign bride of the infinite,
Yeah, you are a shining light,
Yeah, you light up my life.

We made a connection,
A full on chemical reaction,
Brought by dark divine intervention,
Yeah, you are a shining light.
A constellation once seen,
Over Royal David’s city,
An epiphany you burn so pretty,
Yeah, you are a shining light.

These are the days you often say
There’s nothing that we cannot do,
Beneath a canopy of stars
I’d shed blood for you.
The north star in the firmament,
You shine the most bright.
I’ve seen you draped in an electric veil
Shrouded in celestial light.

We made a connection,
A full on chemical reaction,
Brought by dark divine intervention,
Yeah, you are a shining light.
A constellation once seen,
Over Royal David’s city,
An epiphany you burn so pretty,
Yeah, you are a shining light,
Yeah, you light up my life.
Yeah you are a shining light
Yeah you light up my life

Shining Light, Ash, Free All Angels, January 2001

When I hear this song, I am taken back to my house officer days in North Middlesex Hospital. It reminds me of endless baby checks, night shifts, jaundice and low blood sugars. It seems so weird. But I was listening to this as I took the bus back and forth to work. In those I did not drive and I lived at home with my parents. Two buses to work for a journey that took only 7 minutes by car. Interesting times.
