"(I Saw You) Shine" as written by and Steve Taylor Peter Furler....
Turn away, turn away from the wall
Turn away, turn away from the wall
Face me now, face me now
Show me, show me all your tears
Your pain, your pain makes me burn

It's my shame
It's my shame we both hurt
We both hurt

I've got to strip this flesh from my bones
I've got to hammer this wall with my hands
With my hands

And I saw you
I saw you shine
I was holding you

I saw your face. I saw our face as you heard my words
My words
And you left me. you left me to hold yourself

And I've got to strip this flesh from my bones
I've got to hammer this wall with my hands
With my hands

The lights have all gone out
The lights have all gone out
But I saw you
I saw you shine

    My InterpretationPossibly about abusing a person, be it a child, then the abuser turns to that person noticing what he/she did and they feel horrible, remorseful, wanting to be forgiven by the abused.

    I don't know who wrote the lyrics (I'm guessing either Bruce Loose or Will Shatter), but I certainly don't know what the intentions were when they wrote this song. Whoever wrote it obviously knows the actual meaning.

    Personally, I usually do not like to analyze lyrics. But there you go.

    Flipper rules!
