"Shine" as written by Michael Hutchence and Andrew Farriss....
Making up my life
Killer in the night
Rattling my brains
Looking for that light

Shine, shine
Ah shine so bright, shine

When does that thing
I want to breathe her in
Throw away my world
If I could see that pearl

Shine, shine, shine, shine
Shine, shine, shine, shine

The skin is deep
But your oh so weak
Don't put your faith
In the words they speak

The skin is deep
But your oh so weak
Don't put your faith
In the words they speak

Gimme gimme reason for the things I do
Silhouette I'm seeing in the shape of you

Gimme gimme reason for the things I do
Silhouette I'm seeing in the shape of you

Shine, shine, shine
Shine, shine

When it does that thing
Killer in the night
Rattling my brains
Looking for the light

Shine, shine, shine, shine
Shine, shine, so bright

Gimme gimme reasons for the things I do
The silhouette I'm seeing in the shape of you
[fade out]

    General CommentBest song on the album
    ================================
    I think this is about the hedonistic lifestyle of a sexed-up rockstar.

    Specifically, it's about yet another one night stand with a mostly antonymous girl and having a mixture of pleasure and emptiness.

    "Gimme, gimme, reasons for the things I do"
    "Silhouette I'm seeing in the shape of you"

    "Gimme reasons" = slight regrets/emptiness
    "Silhouette" = sexy and anonymous; lit up by the morning sun.

    But, at least he pays attention to her needs.

    "Throw away my world"
    "If I could see that pearl"

    "pearl" = clitoris
