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

"your soul is the one thing you can't compromise"!

It takes me back instantly. I can close my eyes and remember where I was and what this song means to me. He played this song for me so many years ago. Holy shit songs have power. Love this. I can go back to visit but it’s no where to build a home. Memories ♥️👍🏻✌🏼

You couldn't be more right


@Russell Cope they leave such a catastrophic void when they leave. It’s losing your best friend. I feel your pain and I’ve been there. There is no love like the love of your fur kid 🐶♥️🐶

Russell Cope

And we walk down this shore line one last time together...step out the shade were gona go where we can shine...

Russell Cope

Here silly as it sounds this is the song that reminds me of my dog that I had to put down...we had one last walk and il meet him again....
