Houston, Whitney - You Light Up My Life Lyrics




So many nights I sit by my window
Waiting for someone to sing me his song
So many dreams I kept deep inside me
Alone in the dark but now
You've come along

And you light up my life
You give me hope
To carry on
You light up my days
and fill my nights with song

Rollin' at sea, adrift on the water
Could it be finally I'm turning for home?
Finally, a chance to say hey,
I love you
Never again to be all alone

Cause you
You light up my life
You give me hope
To carry on
You light up my days
And fill my nights with song

And you
You light up my life
You give me hope
To carry on
You light up my days
And fill my nights with song
With song
You give me hope
To carry on
You light up my days
And fill my nights with song

It can't be wrong
When it feels so right
'Cause you
You light up my life, my life, my life, my life oooh

    R.I.P Whitney what a beautiful lady and beautiful voice we miss you Whitney

  17. Thuy Dao

    Comparing Whitney Houston's with Debbie Boone's performance is like comparing the two different kind of flowers. Certainly WH got way... higher talent and technique. Her voice and performance just like a rose. While DB's is a much less of fancy features.But it's relax and convey simplicity that's giving calmer feeling. I will choose a pansy for representing hers, as it gives simple souls some restful feeling within closeness.

    So many nights I'd sit by my window
    Waiting for someone to sing me his song
    So many dreams I kept deep inside me
    Alone in the dark but now you've come along

    And you light up my life
    You give me hope to carry on
    You light up my days and fill my nights with song

    Rollin' at sea, adrift on the water
    Could it be finally I'm turnin' for home?
    Finally a chance to say "Hey, I love you"
    Never again to be all alone

    And you light up my life
    You give me hope to carry on
    You light up my days and fill my nights with song

    'Cause you, you light up my life
    You give me hope to carry on
    You light up my days and fill my nights with song

  46. MsTrueTy

    Out of the three versions ive heard from whitney Leanne Rimes and The original debbie boone. I got say i liked Leanne Rimes the best. But all their renditions were amazing. Kudos to the composer anranger and writer of this beautiful master piece. And great job whitney. She is sorely missed

  47. Makyia Paris

    Miss Whitney know she sang the hell out you song bless her soul

  48. Annett McGary-Richardson

    I love it...

  49. Shanice Winston

    Better than the original!

  50. Ashley Wills

    I heard this version on the whitney movie nd it gave me chills

  51. PamTatapella Sings

    So good 💓💓
    She has always sung with heart and soul. Miss you so much Whitney .. the emotion, the voice, the technique and the power .. 💓💓

  52. Amir Amir

    such an immense talent, ability to make ordinary song to be un ordinary that's definitely a gift. the best cover of this song ever.

  53. JustPrincess

    This is the best version and Whitney wasn’t even at her peak vocally or personally and she STILL brought the magic!

  54. Nate J

    I don't understand the description. Whitney was in magnificent voice here! I was nervous for no reason. Her modulations, and her agility was very ON POINT here!

  55. No1KCfan6

    too much vocal gymnastics from whitney, as usual.

  56. aidualc nerak.

    Love Whitney, but...Nobody does it like Debbie!!

  57. David S.

    Her voice has the texture here of cigarette smoking.

  58. 1DJSkittles

    You can hear she's struggling to sing but this is still fantastic

  59. Meanbob2010

    This is beautiful, thank you for this wonderful gift.

  60. Perry Johnson

    NO NO NO....YOU ARE VERY VERY WRONG...WHITNEY SOUNDED FLAWLESS ON THIS SONG.....THE BEST RENDITION AND YOU CAN HEAR THE VOCAL ABILITY AND HOW MUSICALLY AND VOCALLY TALENTED AND SKILLED AS A VOCALIST...YOU ARE WRONG...SHE IS AMAZING!

  61. Fabian Ochoa

    La version de Withney. Houston carece de emocion, esta descuadrada y uda muchas formas en la voz que mi van en la cancion ni en su estilo. La version de Debbie Boone toda la vida.

    Yuliya Tytarenko

    Fabian Ochoa ,
    You Light Up My Life es una canción del año 1977 escrita por el compositor estadounidense Joseph Brooks para la película homónima, ganadora del premio Óscar a la mejor canción original de dicho año. En su versión original está cantada por la soprano estadounidense de origen ucraniano Kvitka Cisyk.

  62. Kathy Verdetto

    No one on earth sounds like ms. Whitney, I'll always be grateful for the beautiful music she left us, RIP.

  63. FollowWithYoirHeartWith April Evans Aka AjEvans

    YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE GORGOUS AND YOU ARE MY MIRACLE !I KNEW WHEN THE MIRACLE CAME I WOULD KNOW!I DO it's you and I say that without hesitation. It's not because of anything else but wonderful caring man who knows me and Why he bothered I am so grateful for the Miracle of you !

  64. Ricardo Janvier

    Only someone who knows and believes in God, can sing that song like that. It is like she is praying, so powerful.

  65. emm cee

    Whitney making this amazing version of this song previously recorded by Debby Boone is just karma for Debby Boone's dad's terrible version of Tutti frutti.

  69. JP Moreno V.

    Tantas noches, me sentaría junto a mi ventana,
    Esperando a que alguien me cante su canción.
    cuantos sueños, que mantuve dentro de mí,
    Sola en la oscuridad, pero ahora has venido.

    Y tú (ahora) iluminas mi vida,
    Me das esperanza, para continuar.
    Iluminas mis días
    Y llenas mis noches.. con una canción.

    Ruedo por el mar, a la deriva en las aguas
    Podría ser finalmente, me estoy volviendo a casa
    Finalmente, una oportunidad de decir: "Hola, te amo"
    Nunca más estaré sola.

    Y tú.... iluminas mi vida,
    Me das esperanza, para continuar.
    Iluminas mis días
    Y llenas mis noches... con canciones

    Tú, enciendes mi vida
    Me das esperanza para continuar
    Iluminas mis días
    Y llenas mi vida con canciones.

    No puedo estar mal
    cuando me siento tan bien
    porque tú.... enciendes mi vida

  76. eleventhofmaynineteensixtysix

    Wow.....

  77. DMC

    Whitney Houston the best female vocalist of her generation,,, I think her voice is too powerful for this song though ...

    Patryk vd meulen

    haah soo true :)

  78. truthandpeaceforever

    Pat Boone’s daughter Debbie Boone made a hit out of the song “You Light Up My Life”, the words of the song were written by a woman who worshipped Lucifer and wrote the song to Lucifer. see: http://christianobserver.net/the-deception-of-billy-graham-a-mind-control-front/

  79. giftedsinger13

    Whitney, You will always be a light in my life.....And I will always be grateful to have lived long enough to bear witness to your amazing talent/musical gifts. Thank you for leaving a legacy that will forever inspire musicians all over the world forever. RIP

  82. Charles Simons

    Too mannered for me,what a disappointment.And I generally like her singing.Too bad.

  83. TzoficialTv

    Soo perfect. 🎶❤️

  84. João Paulo Ferreira

    The voice a voz somente isso...melhor versao

  85. Ishchuk Anton

    The first version oh this song was made by Kvitka Cisyk. Whitney realy perfect, but as for me KC's version is my better.

  86. Day Dreamer

    She was such a very good singer doesn't matter what she sings

  87. Zangempi

    This one is stronger than the one,of LeAnn and Debbie.

  88. Ahmed Nazmy

    you light up my life

  89. Bill Biggs

    Marian needs to do her own version and do this song justice. No disrespect to Whitney.

  90. AmbioAuora Sooth

    2:35 powerful :-)

  91. He Wi

    I am not really a big fan of Whitney, but this is just FORMIDABLE!!!

  92. Jacek Placek

    Kwitka Cisyk version I love

  93. Glory Mosby

    Whitney Houston can make any song sound like it came straight out the church!!! Such a gift!! May God continue to rest her forevermore

  95. Anna Dina Strofante

    l' m shivering,😘only yuo are unattainable.l love yuo Whitney

  96. Jared, 19

    She's breathtaking as always! ❤ but i'd rather the debby boone version

  97. VideoMenu

    The original's pacing is better--this one seems rushed in most places, like "let's get this over" stopping her from really holding a note. But Whitney... undeniably outstanding. But because of pacing, the original is better. Of course, "imo", so save the butthurt.

    Slim242

    You light up my life

    jay2luv

    VideoMenu I like this pace better the other is to slow

    Ryan Espinoza-Marcus

    Totally agree with it! Excellent appraisal of the song. Whitney was one of a kind and always a pleasure listening to her, but, Debbie Boone just "nailed' this song, the pacing of it, primarily, and even the actual rendition has, somewhat, more emotional power, as someone "eating and savoring something....very slowly"
