LYRICS

The Manhattans “Shining Star” Lyrics

Honey you are my shining star
Don’t you go away, oh baby
I wanna be right here where you are
Till my dying day, oh baby

So many have tried, tried to find
A love like yours and mine, oh baby
Don’t you realize how you hypnotise me
Make me love you more each time, oh baby

Honey, I’ll never leave you lonely
I’ll give my love to you only, to you only
To you only

Honey you are my shining star
Don’t you go away, oh baby
I wanna be right here where you are
Till my dying day, oh baby

Feel so good when we’re lying here next to each other
Lost in love, oh baby
Honey when we touch, I love you so much
You’re all I ever dreamed of, oh baby

Honey, I’ll never leave you lonely
I’ll give my love to you only, to you only
To you only

Honey you are my shining star, don’t you go away

A third single from the upcoming new edition of the Jerry Garcia GarciaLive series has been shared. Listen to a soulful version of The Manhattans’ 1980 hit “Shining Star” above, via YouTube.

Melvin Seals’ warm keyboard playing and a strong rhythm section set the foundation for this passionate performance. Although Garcia’s vocals feel weathered, his guitar playing shines with emotion.

Pick up GarciaLive Volume Eight in the official Jerry Garcia webstore. It’s scheduled to be released on March 10, 2017. Previously shared songs from the LP include a cover of Eric Clapton’s “Lay Down Sally” and JGB-staple “Reuben and Cherise.”
