"Shine" as written by Ulrich Schnauss and Robert Duncan Mcvey....
Shine,
So fragile
Try,
With such kindness
Self-regardless

Lie,
So truthfully
Unknowingly

Don't hide,
'Cause I'm on your side,
I'm on your side

Brighter,
Closer,
Such loss,
Such fear

So close,
We are
Not lost,
Not far

Shine,
So fragile
Don't hide,
'Cause I'm on your side,
I'm on your side


Brighter,
Closer,
Such loss,
Such fear

Stand off,
On fire
We touch
Desire

Jesus Christ
On fire
Desire
Jesus Christ on fire

I don't see you in my sky
I don't see you in my sky
I don't see you in my sky

Burnt out like faded stars,
We are
Burnt out like faded stars,
We are

If I could go right now,
So far
If I could go right now
So far

Burnt out like faded stars,
We are
Burnt out like faded stars,
We are

    General CommentYou shine. So fragile.
    You try with such kindess, self regardless
    You lie so truthfully, unknowingly.
    You hide but I'm on your side. I'm on your side.

    Brighter. closer. such lies, such fear
    Stand up on fire. Return desire.

    You shine. So fragile.
    Don't hide 'cause I'm your side. I'm on your side.

    Brighter love on such lies, such fear
    So close we are. Not us, not far.

    Jesus Christ On fire. Desire.
    Jesus Christ. On fire

    I'll see you in my sky.
    I'll see you in my sky.
    I'll see you in my sky.

    Outside (But I'm inside??) my faded stars, we are.
    Outside my faded stars, we are.

    If I could go (come?? jump? joy? glow?) right now so far
    If I could go (come? jump? joy? glow?) right now so far

    Outside my faded stars, we are.
    Outside my faded stars, we are.

    General CommentThese were really difficult. At 2:42 it sort of sounds like "Jesus Christ" and at 2:55 it definitely sounds like Jesus Christ, which doesn't make sense.

    Anyway, I think this song is about insecurities and how a person might feel they're not good enough for things - relationships, etc. And this song tells them, "You're wrong, just shine". Very appropriate, given that the next song on the album is "Stars"

    General CommentHey, whisk3rs, good job on the lyrics...

    It is:

    Jesus Christ's on fire both times (and I think it makes sense).

    However, the line "Soft regardless" is definitely "Self regardless", which is the same as saying "selfless", i.e. not selfish.

    Peace!

    General CommentBeautiful song... Thanks whisk3rs for your point of view, but I have a question (my English isn't so good yet): what does "unchart but faded stars, we are" mean? A light of hope for them? Or something else? Best regards :).

    General CommentThis is the most beautiful song ever. It's so irritating when an artist doesn't publish lyrics with their work. But I guess sometimes its not about what you say but the sound that the words make as an addition to the song. Anyway, I heard the lyrics a little differently and Im going to put them here. I'm not saying mine are right, I think everyone is going to put a special meaning to this song when they hear it.

    You shine
    So fragile
    Don't hide
    'Cuz I'm your side
    I'm on your side

    Bright On
    Love on
    Such love
    Such fear

    So Close
    we are
    not us
    on fire

    Jesus Crist
    on fire
    desire
    Jesus Crist
    on fire

    I'll see you in my sky
    I'll see you in my sky
    I'll see you in my sky

    Outside my faded stars
    we are
    Outside my faded stars
    we are

    If I could come right now
    so far
    If I could come right now
    so far

    Outside my faded stars
    we are
    outside my faded stars
    we are

    General CommentAck! It didnt publish the first part of the song! Here's the whole thing again:

    You Shine
    So Fragile

    Desire

    You shine
    So fragile
    Don't hide
    'Cuz I'm your side
    I'm on your side

    Bright On
    Love on
    Such love
    Such fear

    So Close
    we are

    desire
    Jesus Crist
    on fire

    I'll see you in my sky
    I'll see you in my sky
    I'll see you in my sky

    Outside my faded stars
    we are
    Outside my faded stars
    we are

    If I could come right now

    If I could come right now
    so far

    Outside my faded stars
    we are
    outside my faded stars
    we are

    General CommentJust a correction: It's NOT "Jesus Christ on Fire"

    It's "Jesus Christ, I'm on Fire. If you listen in a good pair of monitors or headphones you can hear this. The song is very stylized lyrically and there is a brever (reversed reverb) effect layered on the vocals that makes it difficult sometimes. And the way it is sung at that point, it most certainly at first sounds like "JC on Fire" because I'm & on are mashed up very quickly. Lyrically that wouldn't make any sense, and could be considered offensive. Kind of interesting that the addition of the word "I'm" makes it flow better lyrically. I'm sure Robert Duncan McVey new this when he wrote the lyrics.

    just a correction I figured should be mentioned.

    The rest of the lyrics looks on point everyone. Thanks for contributing. :)

    General CommentI don't think the following is correct.

    Laugh,
    So truthfully
    All known me

    I think it's

    You lie,
    So truthfully
    Unknowingly.
