"Shine Over Me" as written by and Grant Walmsley....
There was a man around the corner
Well I know his son and I stole his daughter
I'd see him as I was driving past
He was always workin' on and workin' on and workin' on

An older man but not so old
Well he's lying in the ground now dead and cold
Well what's so hard is we're all confined
By the laws of something that's more divine

Anywhere and anyone, anytime and any reason
Everywhere and everyone has something going on
Anytime the sun don't shine or you're left behind or out of season
Constant changes moving on, shine over me

So I lost my sense of humour
I hope it's gonna find me sometime soon
Those times when you cannot be prepared
They suck the life right out of you

All you ask is to continue
But it leaves you spinning round and round
You don't need that pain within you
You've gotta wash it out, wash it out and kick it down

Anywhere and anyone, anytime or any reason
Everywhere and everyone has something going wrong
Anytime the sun don't shine or you're left behind or out of season
Constant changes moving on, shine over me

Well everywhere and everyone has many types of different reasons
Anytime that it all goes wrong just shine over me
Anytime you're left behind or the sun won't shine or you're out of
Season
Constant changes moving on, shine over me

Anywhere, anyone, anytime you care to mention
Everywhere and everyone has something going wrong
Anytime you're left behind and the heartache and the pain take over
Just stick around and shine over me
Shine over me

    General CommentIn the words of Dave Gleeson, this is a song "about mates, and being loyal, and staying true, and sticking by the people who you believe in." Great song too.

    General CommentGreat Aussie song to listen to at the pub, almost like Khe Sanh or Run to Paradise in some ways.
