Lyrics I NEVER CARED MUCH
FOR MOONLIT SKIES,
I NEVER WINK
AT FIREFLIES,
BUT NOW THAT THE STARS
ARE IN YOUR EYES,
I'M BEGINNING TO SEE THE LIGHT.
I NEVER WENT IN
FOR AFTERGLOW,
OR CANDLELIGHT
ON THE MISTLETOE,
BUT NOW WHEN
YOU TURN THE LAMP
DOWN LOW
I'M BEGINNING TO SEE THE LIGHT.

USED TO RAMBLE
IN THE PARK,
SHADOWBOXING
AFTER DARK,
THEN YOU CAME A
ND CAUSED A SPARK
THAT'S A FOUR-ALARM FIRE
NOW.

I NEVER MADE LOVE
BY LANTERN SHINE,
I NEVER SAW RAINBOWS
IN MY WINE,
BUT NOW
THAT YOUR LIPS
ARE BURNING MINE,
I'M BEGINNING TO SEE THE LIGHT.
