When you're dyin', when you're dyin'
There ain't no use in cryin'
I'm gonna keep on livin' 'till the light
Shines down on you
Burnin' right in
Ya can't stop when you're winning
I'm gonna show my hand make history

Show me the way
Show me the way
Show me the way
Show me the way
Show me the way
Show me the way

I'm dyin', I'm dyin'
There ain't no use in tryin'
I'm gonna keep on livin' 'till the light's
Shining down on you
Burnin' right in
Ya can't stop when you're winning
I'm gonna show my head make history

Show me the way
Show me the way
Show me the way
Show me the way
Show me the way

Show me the way
Show me the way
Show me the way
Show me the way
Show me the way

I can see the light shining
It's shining down on me, yeah
I can see the light shining
It shines on you and me, yeah, you and me
There's a new day dawning
It's here to set me free, yeah
I can see the changes coming
It's coming over me, over me

I can see the light shining
I can see the light shining
I can see the light shining
I can see the light shining
Shine on, shine on

Jesse with the long hair....
Robert Earl Keen, Jr.
Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.
