"Shining" as written by and Peter Geoffrey/erasmus Wilkinson....
Call it over
Call it gone
Call it nothing
See what you've gone and done
Call it stupid
Call it wrong
Call it reckless
See what we've gone and done

Who am I to break this young girl's heart
How the mighty rise and fall
I will not be beaten
You have yet to see me shining, shining
I will not be beaten
You have yet to see me shining, shining
I won't take this lying down

Call me Sunday
Call me soon
Call me heartless
Call me to your room
Call me lonely
Call me lame
Call me blind and foolish just to spare you from the pain

    General CommentSo when his song "Story of my life" comes on the radio it sounds like cheesey pop music. Then i'm sitting at my girlfriends house before I go away on tour and she plays the album and dude, I promise it's worth it. The more you listen to it the better it sounds. It really is rewarding.
    And Helen, thankyou. I love you

    General Commenta beautifully written/sounding song. so emotional. On the "Win A Date With Tad Hamilton" soundtrack. Personally, i think this song is far too good to be featured on a cheesy film such as this. Nevertheless, it is beautiful! One of my faves.

    General CommentThis song is so awesome
    I totally forgot about it till today when i was trying to find a cd to listen to and this song popped up.
    It's beautiful.
    i really wanna know wat the actual meaning is. Like, i took the chorus as saying to be strong and not giving up. But then the verses kinda don't say anything like that i guess. and then there's the 'Who am I to break this young girl's heart? How the mighty rise and fall'. so im confused :P but it's still an awesome song to listen to.
