Song by Bryant Oden

Much thanks to Danae Shanti for the beautiful back up vocals, and also to Tony Crank and Rick D. Lewis for filling out the song.

Lyrics to The Light in You:
(I’ll try to add the chords soon, but feel free to leave a comment if you want them before I’ve added them).

There’s a light in you
That always shines through
If you only knew your beauty

There’s a light in your eyes
As endless as the skies
Do you realize your beauty

There’s a light in your heart
And it’s never apart
It loves when you start to see your beauty

Even when it feels so far
It’s shining in you like the brightest star
It’s what you truly are
Pure beauty

    Sorry about you having to move away from your best friend. I know that’s hard. (I wrote a song called “Now You’re Gone” about when you can’t see a best friend as much. It’s on this website under “more serious songs”).

    It will probably get easier with time, but I know it’s really hard now. One day at a time, and thanks for your comments. I’m glad you like my songs 🙂 ~Bryant
