​Shine It All On

This song is by E and appears on the album Broken Toy Shop (1993).

Original video
Tarot cards said I'm already dead
Crystal ball fell down onto my head
Tenderness, if I want it I pay
My true love, well, she threw it away

But I can shine it all on
I can shine it all on
I can shine it all on
And still be amazed

Had some money and a hole in my pocket
Had a house, but I forgot to lock it
Took a drag from a smoke that may kill me
What a drag, how the winter wind chills me

I can shine it all on
I can shine it all on
I can shine it all on
And still be amazed

I'll shine it on just like Macbeth
In the face of certain death
Of a salesman or a king
And when the palm trees are on fire
I'll take my boat out on the sea

Had a face, but I never could save it
Had a kid, but I never would name it
Have a life, well, that's what they call it
It's a road, but I guess I could crawl it

I can shine it all on
I can shine it all on
I can shine it all on
And still be amazed

(Shine it all on)
I'll take my boat out on the sea
(Shine it all on)
I can shine it all on
And still be amazed
