"Only Thing That Shines" as written by David Allen, Martyn Barker, Carl Marsh and Barry William Andrews....
Night night
Blow out the candle
Inside a blazing building
Upon a sacred mission
All the lights that twinkle
All the pens that sign
All the wishes that sink
Making up our mind

Up the wooden stairs
Up into my heart
I know that you know
This is all that matters
I feel our two young deaths so close now
Smiling soft and shiny
The blade is sharp and fine
It could just slit us open

And you know
This is nothing special
With one slip
And we could lose ourselves forever
One time for all times
And you are
The only thing that shines
The only thing that shines

Nowhere near
Wade in a lake of silence
Oh, you say that word and
Pour myself like wine
This is as much as I know
This is all they told me
All wicked shapes and lines
Taking us somewhere

And you know
This is nothing special
With one slip
We could lose ourselves forever
One time for all times
And you are
The only thing that shines
The only thing that shines
The only thing that shines

    General CommentThis is a love song, but the speaker acknowledges the subjectivity/relativivty of his relationship with the other person in question, and its finiteness - but nonetheless, they are still precious to him above all else.

    Song MeaningThis song is about the meaningless of life; that it really has no direction or significance and we have no power over fate, but for the ability to end our own lives.

    General CommentFrom a December 2015 blog post by Barry Andrews:

    "It is, I think, an honest look at those feelings you have on the precipice of a new, undoubtedly complicated but incredibly exciting love affair. ‘Am I really going to do all this again?’ All the sensible thoughts are recoiling but the possibilities look so vast and exciting.

    If you’re being really honest, though, I suggest, you will recognise that the point of no return was passed some time ago when you weren’t being so vigilant.

    Otherwise you wouldn’t be writing a song like this."
