"Shine" as written by Shelly M Peiken, Kenny Scott, John Shanks and Denny Scott....
Shine through the light
So my thoughts won't
Have to fight
For your love
Just to see you in me
Hurts too much

Mind fills with the thought
Love you till I caught
Fish in the sky
Impossible to fly
See you walk away
Why can't you stay and

Shine through the light
So my thoughts won't
Have to fight
For your love
Just to see you in me
Hurts too much

High from above
I see the words of love
Decay to the ground
Betray what I've found

    General CommentI've slowly realized this is the best Slowdive song. Rachel's vocals reach a place so heavenly and dreamy. Pretty much no other song I've heard as divine as "Shine." The music video only made me fall deeper in love.

    General CommentDreampop at it's finest.

    This track is simply something amazing. Unlike something by My Bloody Valentine (who comes at you like a wall of sound), Shine envelopes you in a dreamscape sonic-blanket of pure ecstasy. Rachel is almost ethereal in this song. I agree with Psychedelia, her vocals reach something truly heavenly. Almost completely drowned out by the thick layers of guitars and drums, they create an entirely new depth unheard of in any other song I have come across.

    I don't really want to overly analyze the lyrics for fear of ruining the song next time I listen to it. I think the lyrics are better left as vague, subtle and obscure as the vocals themselves.


    Shine is (simply and well put by Rut)

    - better than sex.

    General Commentpretty sure the lyrics for Rumskib's cover of "Shine" are different from the lyrics to the original.

    Shine (Rumskib)

    I
    just can't sleep
    we'll remain
    you're still there

    heal from my thorns
    now they're doing my corn
    feel the shattered sky
    justin wants to fly
    she'll look away
    why can't we stay?
    why can't we...

    Shine
    feel the love
    til you follow
    let me die

    you're lie
    just don't say it
    you and me
    you're still mine

    light from the pond
    say when you took pain
    why do you call?
    dream we'll let you stay

    shine through the light
    two will follow
    let me down

    your lie
    just don't say it
    we will be
    you're still around

    she
    feel the love
    til you follow
    let me die

    goodbye
    just can't save you
    you and me
    we'll stop now

    shine
