Lyrics of Shine

Who can ever tell the color of a soul And the memories we keep from long ago? Do we ever really know each other’s past? You can’t go back to before But tomorrow will bring even more Like the tide’s gonna turn you will know, when it’s cold You’re on your own but you’re never alone Shine, shine like the stars in the sky Wipe your dust off your love, let it shine So when nothing’s ever really carved in stone Remember that your heart is holding on And when every second melts up in the past Don’t be afraid it will end Only fear that it never began Like the tide’s gonna turn you will know, when it’s cold You’re on your own but you’re never alone Shine, shine like the stars in the sky Wipe your dust off your love, let it shine You can’t go back to before But tomorrow will bring even more… Like the tide’s gonna turn you will know, when it’s cold You’re on your own but you’re never alone Shine, shine like the stars in the sky Let it shine
