Shine On

This song is by Chris de Burgh and appears on the album Power Of Ten (1992) and on the album Beautiful Dreams (1995).

Shine on, brighter than the sun,
Live for every moment, before the moment's gone,
We shine on you and me tonight,
Way across the universe, burning like a fire in the night;

I was looking at a photograph,
Taken in a garden long before the war,
And out on the lawn,
There were old men and dogs and little children,
All of them gone forever;

There were people by the waterside,
Standing in the same place where I am today;
Nothing has changed - but you know,
That time is moving like a river,
It can only be love forever;

We shine on, brighter than the sun,
Live for every moment, before the moment's gone
We shine on, you and me tonight,
Way across the universe,
Burning like a fire in the night;

There are those who can never cross,
The space between a father and a son,
When they are young,
We must say all the words that should be spoken,
Before they are lost forever;

And I was looking at a photograph,
Taken from a window way above the world,
We've got to learn,
We must leave here a garden for our children,
When we are gone forever;

We shine on, brighter than the sun,
Live for every moment, before the moment's gone
We shine on, you and me tonight,
Way across the universe,
Burning like a fire in the night;
Leave here a garden
Leave here a new world
Shine on
