"Shine Away" as written by and Frank Hannon Brian Wheat....
All is well, as it could ever be
All is well, as it could ever be

All is well, as it could ever be
All is well, as it could ever, it could ask for

Me, I told myself that I'd get better, and I knew I would
But I've said that a thousand times
Said the same in the letters that I wrote to you
Guess you thought it's that same old line

Ooh I know, but the rest of my soul it don't ever need a reason why
Told myself I'd forget about, forget you
Never will till the day I die

This won't take long, shouldn't take but a minute
I got you right here in my heart
It's only human, it's only natural, it's love or animal
Now here you are, so far away, but instead I got it right here in my face

Shine away, shine away, one look at you and I can see the light of day
Shine away, shine away, 'cause I'm afraid of what could happen
If you shine my way, don't you shine my way

Now that it's over, I ask myself the reason why
That was then, the time you were mine
Told myself I'd get over it, over you
Now it's changed it don't feel so right

Ooh I know, but the rest of my soul it don't ever need a reason why
Love you so and always will, love to love you even still
Now there you are, so far away, all the while I got it right here in my face

Shine away, shine away, one look at you and I can see the light of day
Shine away, shine away, 'cause I'm afraid of what could happen
If you shine my way
Shine away, shine away, I got somebody sittin' home, waitin' for me yeah
Shine away, shine away, you make it hard for somebody
Who don't want to play, and I want to play

I told myself that I'd get better, and I knew I would
But I've said that ten thousand times
Said the same every time I made that call to you
Guess you thought it's that same old line

This won't take long, shouldn't take but a minute
I got you right here in my heart
It's only human, it's only natural, it's love or animal
Now there you are, so far away, but instead I got it right here in my face

Shine away, shine away, one look at you and I can see the light of day
Shine away, shine away, 'cause I'm afraid of what could happen
If you shine my way
Shine away, shine away, I got somebody sittin' home, waitin' for me
Shine away, shine away, shine away, shine away, shine away

Shine away, shine away, shine away, shine away, shine away

    General CommentThis one reads like a letter (real, unsent, or imagined) to an ex, from a "true love" kind of relationship that had to end. Maybe she called him one day out of the blue, or he just saw her somewhere. He's moved on, got a new woman now, and things are fine, but he's never quite gotten over the subject of the song. He knows if they have much, or any, contact, he could go back to her, and part of him wants to, but it would be a mistake and would ruin whatever peace he's been able to find, so it's best if she just leaves him alone. "'Cuz I'm afraid of what could happen if you shine my way ..."
