Lyrics


Shine

Put on your blindfold

And a dress that's tight

And come with me

On a mystery night

Open your eyes


Follow our stars under a painted sky

We'll leave the world behind

We're learning to fly

We used to get by


Forget the pictures on your TV screen

We'll steal the visions

That you keep for your dreams

You can turn me on


I was blind and I saw the light

My angel coming

In a brilliant white

Shine for me


You've been hanging from a rope of mediocrity

Strung up by your insecurities


You can shine for me

Somebody has to

Shine for me

It's difficult not to

Shine for me


Follow our stars under a painted sky

We'll leave the world behind

We're learning to fly

We used to get by


Forget the pictures on your TV screen

We'll steal the visions

That you keep for your dreams

You can turn me on


You've been hanging from a rope of mediocrity

Strung up by your insecurities


You can shine for me

Somebody has to

Shine for me

It's difficult not to

Shine for me

Somebody has to

Shine for me

It's difficult not to

Shine for me
