Champlin–famed for his vocal parts in the Chicago hits “Hard Habit to Break” and “Look Away” as well as his work in Sons of Champlin) sings lead on the song, which mixes elements of AOR and classic rock and “Yacht Rock” amidst the uplifting lyrics, “Where are the signs as u look everywhere Searching for answers but nothing is clear/ It takes some time And you question why Lying in the dark /There is a power that we we’ll never know….” The answer comes in the chorus, asserting: “when you feel like you’re losing your soul, when you feel the loss of a soul, Light Still Shines!” Hoekstra handles the guitar solos on “Light Still Shines,” with Devitto on drums.
