"Shine" as written by and Brendan O'brien....
You know, all of you know
To grow, what to feel
And so, follow me low
You are what you lean on
Come out of the cold
And drift, into water

Oohh
And the light shines on
While we all ride on
When the days come and gone
You know we all ride on

Lines thicker than ground
You surf and its real
To soar over and down
To bend and to breathe on

Oohh
And the light shines on
While we all ride on
When the days come and gone
You know we all ride on

Through water when
We are falling
The sounds of bells are ringing out
We'll ride on

Slipped over
The blue lighting
Springs alive to circle down

Oohh
And the light shines on
While we all ride on
When the days come and gone
You know we all ride on

Now the light shines on
While we all ride on
When the days come and gone
You know we all shine on

    General CommentI think this song means no matter what happens, we still have to continue to live life and tomorrow will always come. It's a really good song.

    General CommentShine celebrates the inevitability of change. It's he's willing to risk everything he's achieved for the freedom of a new beginning.

    There's a poem by William Blake that Trey has quoted in respect to the song : 'He who binds himself to a joy, does the winged life destroy: But he who kisses the joy as it flies, lives in eternity's sun rise.'"

    Anastasio requotes Blake's idea in his own words in this song. "I wanted to start off with something that summed up the point that seemingly negative events - which are basically just moments of painful change - may come and go, but the light is always shining on. It's always going to be there, no matter what."
