"Something Shines" as written by and Chris Whitley....
Look out sister, well, who will be released?
A latent savior gradually deceased
And you're no stranger as often come to mind
When I'm watching the rain fall
Wondering whatever makes it shine, it do

It seems like something shines, seems like it

I went back where the criminal saved the day
There's so much wreckage around here
Always some price to pay
But I found me a fragment all of a thing you left behind
I was left wondering, wondering whatever makes it shine

It seems like something shines, it seems like something shines
It seems like something shines, it seems like something shines
Well, take what you can find, till it, till it seems like it
Seems like something shines

Like some thing shines
Seems like something shines

Well, I'm just a peddler hustling the street
Blind to the jewels, I've been begging at my feet
But she got the diamond, oh, engaged upon her spine
While I'm in her shadows, I'm wondering whatever makes it shine

It seems like something shines, seems like it do
It seems like something shines, seems like something shines
It seems like something shines, it seems like something shines
It seems like something shines, I'll take what I can find

It seems like something shines
It seems like something shines
It seems like something shines
Seems like something, seems like something shines
