Shine

Shine

Black Gold

She knows it's time
To say goodbye
To all that she wanted
For all that she loves.

Devotes her mind
To thoughts divine
For all that she needed
And all that she loves

Recites the lines
Repeats the rites
To all that she needed
And wanted most

Won't you shine tonight,
In the face of the light?
With you on my mind,
I can make it through,
Make it through the night

She bides her time
With quiet pride
For all that she wanted
And all that she loves

She begs and pleads
He's all she needs
And ever wanted
She calls out again

Won't you shine tonight,
In the face of the light?
With you on my mind,
I can make it through,
Make it through the night

She takes him in
On calloused knees
(but he's not there)
The emptiness is all she sees
So she begs and she pleads

Won't you
Shine tonight?
In the face of the light?
With you (with you on my mind, I can make it through;
With you on my mind I can make it)

Won't you shine tonight,
In the face of the light?
With you on my mind,
I can make it through,
Make it through the night

Won't you shine and shine tonight?
Won't you shine in the face of the light?
With you on my mind,
I can make it though,
Make it through the night,
Though this night.
