Shine Your Light Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
The cry of the city like a siren's song
Wailing over the rooftops the whole night long
Saw a shooting star like a diamond in the sky
Must be someone's soul passing by
Verse 2
These are the streets
Where we used to run where your Papa's from
These are the days
Where you become what you become
These are the streets
Where the story's told
The truth unfolds
Darkness settles in
Verse 3
Shine your light down on me
Lift me up so i can see
Shine your light when you're gone
Give me the strength
To carry on, carry on
Verse 4
Don't want to be a hero
Just an everyday man
Trying to do the job the very best he can
But now it's like living on borrowed time
Out on the rim, over the line
Always tempting fate like a game of chance
Never want to stick around to the very last dance
Sometimes i stumble and take a hard fall
Loose (?) hold your grip off the wall
Verse 5
Shine your light down on me
Lift me up so i can see
Shine your light when you're gone
Give me the strength to carry on
Carry on
Verse 6
I thought i saw him walking by the side of the road
Maybe trying to find his way home
Verse 7
He's here but not here
He's gone but not gone
Just hope he knows if I get lost
Verse 8
Shine your light down on me
Lift me up so i can see
Shine your light when you're gone
Give me the strength to carry on
To carry on
