"Shine A Light" as written by and Jacob Golden....
My favorite Daniel Johnston song was recorded on a tape deck before you were born
There’s a lyric in the chorus where he talks about joy and it held my hand through an infinite void.
There was a girl in Ohio and my feelings were pure- still I finally got kicked off of that tour
cause my heart has a habit and sometimes it shows
Saint Paul made a girl into an English rose.

Shine a Light on Me…

They Laughed and threw some rotten apples but I wasn’t on the stage that night
I was in the fourth grade with a boom box symphony and 808 bass hits hidden in a microchip.
The record company pushed for a hard hard sell but I couldn’t check out of the roach motel
cause my heart has a habit and sometimes it shows
Saint Paul made a girl into an English rose.

Shine a Light on me…
