Shine

New song lyrics.
 
It's just a little song about hope.
 It's amazing what a new pair of shoes can do you to your outlook!
 
There may be another verse to come, we'll see...
 
 
v.    Rising clouds on the horizon
casting shadows over me.
Rain falling all around this place
blurring everything I see.
Long days and longer nights
spent slowly tearing down the walls.
Climbing up out of the darkness
maybe this time I won’t fall.
 
c.     Something about you makes me feel like I could shine
that I could kick off these old shoes
and I could dance one more time.
That there’s a melody in me that I have
never sung before.
Words still left unwritten
carry hope of something more.
Something about you makes me feel like I could shine.
 
 
v.   Unsteady road yet I am walking
counting steps in these new shoes.
Trying hard to find a rhythm
letting go what I can’t use.
I feel lighter in these footsteps
looking back I see a trace.
Of where I’ve been of where I’m going
and that this must be the place.
 
 
c.    Something about you makes me feel like I could shine
that I could kick off these old shoes
and I could dance one more time.
That there’s a melody in me that I have
never sung before.
Words still left unwritten
carry hope of something more.
Something about you makes me feel like I could shine.
