Shine
David Gray Lyrics


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 gotta 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
You gotta rise from these ashes
Like a bird of flame
Step out of the shadow
We've gotta go where we can shine

For all that we struggle
For all we pretend
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
Take my hand
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)
Through the windows of midnight
Moonfoam and silver

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 gotta 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 
You gotta rise from these ashes 
Like a bird of flame 
Step out of the shadow 
We've gotta go where we can shine 

For all that we struggle 
For all we pretend 
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 just can't compromise 
Take my hand 
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) 
Through the windows of midnight 
Moonfoam and silver

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
And we'll walk down the shoreline
One last time together
Feel the wind blow our wanderin' hearts
Like a feather
But who nows what's waiting
In the wings of time
Dry your eyes
We gotta 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
You gotta rise from these ashes
Like a bird of flame
Take my hand
We've gotta go where we can shine
For all that we struggle
For all we pretend
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 is all unwinds
Remember your soul is the one thing
You just 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)
Through the windows of midnight
Moonfoam and silver



KATE RABY

One of my favorite songs.I think this is the inspiration-my favorite poem:

Ephemera by W.B. Yeats

Your eyes that once were never weary of mine

Are bowed in sorrow under pendulous lids,

Because our love is waning.'

                                          And then She:

'Although our love is waning, let us stand

By the lone border of the lake once more,

Together in that hour of gentleness

When the poor tired child, passion, falls asleep.

How far away the stars seem, and how far

Is our first kiss, and ah, how old my heart!'

Pensive they paced along the faded leaves,

While slowly he whose hand held hers replied:

'Passion has often worn our wandering hearts.'

The woods were round them, and the yellow leaves

Fell like faint meteors in the gloom, and once

A rabbit old and lame limped down the path;

Autumn was over him: and now they stood

On the lone border of the lake once more:

Turning, he saw that she had thrust dead leaves

Gathered in silence, dewy as her eyes,

In bosom and hair.

                           'Ah, do not mourn,' he said,

'That we are tired, for other loves await us;

Hate on and love through unrepining hours.

Before us lies eternity; our souls

Are love, and a continual farewell.'

Robin Hood was a socialist.

This song played at my cousins wake. This is the first time I’ve been able to listen to this in almost 20 years. Not easy to do either.

Good on you for feeling the fear and doing it anyway.

Joel Middaugh

Beautiful song. I dig your username. I love that he uses his more natural Welsh accent on these early songs.

JonJon

John Williams

Daniel. Weeping together.

My name is August West

One of the best and most under-rated artists ever!

Marcus Aurelius

This is one of the Greatest songs ever written and performed. And so many of his songs are works of fine art. WORDCRAFT, and he's got it! Unbelievable to me that he is so little well known and so glad I got to see him live one time many years ago in my hometown of Charlottesville Va. One of my all time favorite artists.
