"Everything Shines" as written by and Chris Trapper....
Hey, come this May,
We'll be running in the sun again, your time will come.
You're just a young broken heart.
Been out sleepin' in the yard, how could you be so dumb?

All we losers stand in line just waiting for our time.
Broken angel take that plane and finger paint the sky,
'Til everything shines,
Everything shines,
Everything shines,
Everything shines.
Hey broken clock,
Hhaven't heard your old tick tocking man for much too long,
And lonely jukebox,
Iin the corner of the nightclub, man, I need your song
(I need your song)

    General CommentBroken angel take that plane and finger paint the sky till everything shines - The angel is gonna fix the sky till it's beautiful again. Don't know what being broken has to do with anything though. Do you?

    General CommentNtoTheDrk, the whole song's hopeful, it's there to bring you up...pretty much saying to hold on 'til thing's get better ~All we losers stand in line just waiting for our time~, at least, that's what it is to me.

    General CommentI think it's more like "Quit moping and waiting around pointlessly - just get up and grab life." Broken is like.. having a broken heart. The broken clock, the outdated jukebox - metahpors for basically feeling unwanted. It is uplifting, but Great Big Sea has a lot of songs that are.
    I love this song. :)
