Lyrics[]

Life is but a moment
A single grain of sand
That slips right through the hourglass
And slips right through your hand
You've shown me how
To make each moment count
And I know now
What life's all about

Life is but a twinkle
The winking of an eye
A star that lights the universe
A flash across the sky
You came to me
Just like a shooting star
You gave to me
The love that's in your heart

When you live for love
How precious life can be
When you give your love
I truly do believe
If only for a moment
It's a miracle to see
So shine for all the world tonight
And live for love
Give your love to me

Life is but a twinkle
The winking of an eye
A star that lights the universe
A flash across the sky
You came to me
Just like a shooting star
You gave to me
The love that's in your heart

When you live for love
How precious life can be
When you give your love
I truly do believe
If only for a moment
It's a miracle to see
So shine for all the world tonight
And live for love
Give your love to me

So shine for all the world tonight
And live for love
Give your love to me

Life is but a moment
A single grain of sand
That slips right through the hourglass
And slips right through your hand
You've shown me how
To make each moment count
And I know now
What life is all about

Life is but a twinkle
The winking of an eye
A star that lights the universe
A flash across the sky
You came to me
Just like a shooting star
You gave to me
The love that's in your heart

When you live for love
How precious life can be
When you give your love
I truly do believe
If only for a moment
It's a miracle to see
So, shine for all the world tonight
And live for love
Give your love to me
Na na na na na na na

Life is but a twinkle
The winking of an eye
A star that lights the universe
A flash across the sky
You came to me
Just like a shooting star
You gave to me
The love that's in your heart

When you live for love
How precious life can be
When you live for love
I truly do believe
If only for a moment
It's a miracle to see
So, shine for all the world tonight
And live for love
Give your love to me

So shine for all the world tonight
And live for love
Give your love to me

Shine on me Shine on me Shine on me
