"The Shining" as written by and Damon Michael Gough....
Faith pours from your walls, drowning your calls,
I've tried to hear, you're not near.
Remembering when I saw your face,
Shining my way, pure timing.
Now I've fallen in deep, slow silent sleep,
It's killing me, I'm dying.

To put a little sunshine in your life.

Soleil all over you, warm sun pours over me.
Soleil all over you
Warm sun.

Now this slick fallen rift,
Came like a gift,
Your body moves ever nearer
And your will dry this tear

Now that we're here, and grieve for me, not history
But now I'm dry of thoughts, wait for the rain,
Then it's replaced, sun setting

And suddenly we're in love with everything.

Soleil all over you, warm sun pours over me.
Soleil all over you
Warm sun.

    General CommentI first heard this song in an episode of Queer As Folk, and fell in love instantly. Badly Drawn Boy owns my heart.

    General CommentI love when he says "Now I've fallen in deep, slow silent sleep, it's killing me, I'm dying....to put a bit of sunshine in your life." He describes the feeling so well, kind of like an obsession. Once you're into someone, all you want is to make them happy
