Tarot cards
Said I'm already dead
Crystal ball
Fell down onto my head
If I want it I pay
My true love
Well she threw it away

But I can shine it all on
I can shine it all on
I can shine it all on
And still be amazed

Had some money
And a hole in my pocket
Had a house
But I forgot to lock it
Took a drag
From a smoke that may kill me
What a drag
How the winter wind chills me


I'll shine it on just like MacBeth
In the face of certain death
Of a salesman or a king
And when the palm trees are on fire
I'll take my boat out on the sea
Had a face
But I never could save it
Hada kid
But I never would name it
Have a life
Well, that's what they call it
It's a road
But I guess I could crawl it

    "i step outside into the light the sun is bright i close my eyes the summer caught me by surprise and now i'm left here waiting for you to tell me how it is if i could only get a kiss i could make you take a risk on a boy who wants this" When he talks about stepping out into the light he is talking about a girl. He steps into her life she is so great he doesn't know what to do and she caught him by surprise, then out of nowhere leaves. He needs to know from her how it all is now and he needs a kiss that he can't have. He just wants her to take a risk on him. "and now the sun has sunk below the evening wind, it starts to blow i catch the sent of your perfume it lifts me higher than the moon" She takes the chance to be with him, and when he gets the smell of her perfume it lifts him high as to being so happy. "i'll be fine if you stay by my side never felt this way in my whole life never had this feeling before tonight can't get you off my mind cause you shine, girl, oh you know you shine" Its pretty much self-explanatory, but she that he needs her by his side and has never been so happy ever, because she shines for him. "your eyes are brighter than the sun they make me see that you're the one your smile takes my breath away and leave me with nothing left to say you arent like any other girl that i've met in this whole world you're so much more than they can be so won't you please just be with me" she is just so bright inside. It makes him feel as though she is the one for him because she is different then any other girl he has met, he believe she is so much more then any of them can be so he wants her to pick him. "i'll be fine if you stay the night never felt this way in my whole life never had this feeling before tonight can't get you off my mind cause you shine, girl, oh you know you shine" Pretty the same thing the only difference is he wants her to stay just one more night with him. "i would give up forever to see the day where the both of us could just walk away hand in hand" He describes how what they have can't be more because of unknown situations and how he just wishes they could be one together, but will have to wait to see that day. Then is just repeats the chorus This song really ment a lot to me. I was almost exactly this song. But in the end it was over by her and now its meaningless but i felt how he did. That she was the one, she was different then other girls, she caught me by surprise and lifted me higher then the sky. But i guess some things were never ment to last.
