The purple mountains fall on chimneys made of gold
To keep you warm inside, but tingling for more
I see you rocking by the fire of your home
But you keep on fading

The bottle’s deep enough for heaven to unfold
But from this alley hell is definitely cold
Mm, do with what you’re told to keep from fading
To keep from fading

So, shine on, little light
Shine on from heaven, show me it’s alright
Show me it’s alright

You keep your balance as you reach out from the dark
To touch a light that’s barely bright enough for talk
And everybody knows that ticking’s just for clocks
But you keep on fading
Yeah, you keep on fading

So, shine on, little light
Shine on from heaven, show me it’s alright
Show me it’s alright

Stay strong, my little girl
Look up to heaven, they tell you it’s alright
That everything’s alright

Just lay down, little girl
Eyes up to heaven, they tell you it’s alright
Everything’s alright
