"Shine On" as written by and James Hillier Blount....
Are you calling for our last dance?
I see it in your eyes in your eyes
I could use the same old lines but I'll sing

Shine on, just shine on
Close your eyes and they'll all be gone
They can scream and shout that they've been sold out
But it paved the cloud that we're dancing on
So shine on, just shine on
With your smile just as bright as the sun
'Cause they're all just slaves to the Gods they've made
But you and I, just shone, just shone

And when silence greets my last goodbye
The words I need are in your eyes
And I'll sing

Shine on, just shine on
Close your eyes and they'll all be gone
They can scream and shout that they've been sold out
But it paved the cloud that we're dancing on
So shine on, just shine on
With your smile just as bright as the sun
'Cause they're all just slaves to the Gods they've made
But you and I just shone, just shone

So shine on, just shine on
Close your eyes and they'll all be gone
They can scream and shout that they've been sold out
But it paved the cloud that we're dancing on
So shine on, just shine on
With your smile just as bright as the sun
'Cause they're all just slaves to the Gods they've made
But you and I just shone, just shone

    General CommentI think this song is about a past relationship, the guy made mistakes in the relationship and he's trying to show her the good things about having the relationship and the romance they had, and how he can better cummunicate that in a song then in words.
