Shine On Lyrics

Shine on, brighter than the sun,
Live for every moment, before the moment's gone,
We shine on you and me tonight,
Way across the universe, burning like a fire in the night;

I was looking at a photograph,
Taken in a garden long before the war,
And out on the lawn,
There were old men and dogs and little children,
All of them gone forever;

There were people by the waterside,
Standing in the same place where I am today;
Nothing has changed - but you know,
That time is moving like a river,
It can only be love forever;

We shine on, brighter than the sun,
Live for every moment, before the moment's gone
We shine on, you and me tonight,
Way across the universe,
Burning like a fire in the night;

There are those who can never cross,
The space between a father and a son,
When they are young,
We must say all the words that should be spoken,
Before they are lost forever;

And I was looking at a photograph,
Taken from a window way above the world,
We've got to learn,
We must leave here a garden for our children,
When we are gone forever;

We shine on, brighter than the sun,
Live for every moment, before the moment's gone
We shine on, you and me tonight,
Way across the universe,
Burning like a fire in the night;
Leave here a garden
Leave here a new world
Shine on
