So, thought I'd partake in the exchange of "what this one means to me." Shine. because that's where I am at this very moment. Not a regular place for me - to this point in my life - but I am working on it.
I can see it in your eyes - we've all seen "those" eyes
What I know in my heart is true - I know it, but can I, do I want to, face it?
That our love it has faded - and there's the big matzo ball
Like the summer run through - where he's from the summers are short but sweet (mine are long, lingering and for the most part, dreadful - wonder how he would've phrased it if he was from here? I'll give it a shot - "that our love it has faded, like a sun-burned tattoo"...)
So we'll walk down the shoreline - let's be civilized about this
One last time together - key words "last time"
Feel the wind blow our wanderin' hearts - neither one of us is really in this
Like a feather - take it lightly, go with the flow
But who knows what's waiting - nobody ever knows
In the wings of time - what tomorrow or next year will bring
Dry your eyes - stop your whining
We’re gonna go where we can shine - we're both going to be fine, probably great
Don't be hiding in sorrow - what would be the benefit of that?
Or clinging to the past - what use is that?
With your beauty so precious - and you know what I'm talking about
And the season so fast - it's not gonna last forever, sweetness, so get with it
No matter how cold the horizon appear - your future looks, well, frigid now, but it is really just a mirage (see third verse, line 1)
Or how far the first night - it wasn't that long ago, summer's are short here, remember?
When I held you near - cause your beauty is, well, was so precious
We’re gonna rise from these ashes like a bird of flame - this thing's burned out, but hey I'm feeling pretty good, sort of reborn
Take my hand - cause you're getting mighty close to that cliff
We're gonna go where we can shine - we're gonna be great, probably fantastic
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na - no no no no no no don't cry
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na - no, really don't
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na - c'mon, stop
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na - seriously?
Shine - we've got really bright future's ahead of us, blinding, really. Look, sunglasses!
For all that we struggle - we keep trying to make this work
For all we pretend - but it's all an act
You know it don't come down to nothing - none of it matters
Except love in the end - if we don't both feel it in our souls, and frankly...
And ours is a road that is strewn with goodbyes - it's not the first time, probably won't be the last, even though our future's are really, really bright
But as it unfolds, as it all unwinds - when you're sitting by yourself realizing what the h*ll just happened
Remember your soul is the one thing - well, maybe your heart too, but let's go with soul...
You can't compromise - you should never sacrifice what your soul wants, because it will HAUNT you...I'm telling you
Step out of the shadow - seriously, it looks creepy
We're gonna go where we can shine - bright!
We're gonna go where we can shine - monumental!
We're gonna go where we can shine - magnanimous even!
(And look, and look and look and look) - open your eyes
Through the windows of midnight - it appears to be dark, but
Moonfoam and silver - look what we always have to remember our time together? Moonfoam.
Peach and ginger tea sounds great YDTM
"...I'm life sweet life itself."
