"Shimmer and shine" as written by and Ben / Harper....
It takes a 100 mile of love
to heal a mile of pain.
I never say goodbye to the sea
and I never blow out a flame.

and I've got white lies for dark times
and I don't need your crutch.
I'm kicking out stained glass windows
and I'm tender to the touch.

Shimmer and shine
we leave it all behind
shimmer and shine
when you tell that you're mine
shimmer and shine, shimmer and shine.

Bring me the music for the revolution
it puts my mind at ease,
to know, we're the problem, we're the solution
the cure and the disease.

but life is trying to force me,
force me to trust.
I've done all I can
I'll do what I must.

Shimmer and shine
we leave it all behind
shimmer and shine
when you tell that you're mine
shimmer and shine, shimmer and shine.

Shimmer and shine
leave it all behind.
shimmer and shine
tell me that you're mine
shimmer and shine, shimmer and shine.

shimmer and shine
tell me that you're mine
shimmer and shine when we leave it all behind
shimmer and shimmer and shine.
