An old favorite revisited


(I love the suit and the pink shirt. And the shoes. He's got great shoes.)


Shine
David Gray

I can see it in your eyes
What I know in my heart is true
That our love it has faded
Like the summer run through

So we'll walk down the shoreline
One last time together
Feel the wind blow our wanderin' hearts
Like a feather

But who knows what's waiting
In the wings of time
Dry your eyes
We’re gonna go where we can shine

Don't be hiding in sorrow
Or clinging to the past
With your beauty so precious
And the season so fast

No matter how cold the horizon appear
Or how far the first night
When I held you near
We’re gonna rise from these ashes like a bird of flame

Take my hand
We're gonna go where we can shine

Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na

Shine

For all that we struggle
For all we pretend
You know it don't come down to nothing
Except love in the end

And ours is a road that is strewn with goodbyes
But as it unfolds, as it all unwinds
Remember your soul is the one thing
You can't compromise

Step out of the shadow
We're gonna go where we can shine
We're gonna go where we can shine
We're gonna go where we can shine

(And look, and look and look and look)
Through the windows of midnight
Moonfoam and silver

Moonfoam and silver - Beautiful.

You must have attended a concert of his sometime? This applies to leaving that nasty job of yours and going where you can shine, right? Not S, I hope?
