Badlands – Shine On lyrics

Yeah, alright

Born by a river
If you look into my eyes the river's end

People sometimes think I'm crazy
But I know this world's gone mad

Tell me why
I can't explain
Way down inside I'm filled with pain

Shine on
Only you can set me free
Shine on
Close my eyes you're all I see
Shine on, shine on, shine on
Won't you turn your light on me

Oh my Lord, I've been a sinner
In my time I've seen my ways
And if I beg down on my knees
Would you hear these words I say

'Cause in the dark I need your vision
Don't let this poor soul fade away

(Shine on)
Only you can set me free
(Shine on)
Close my eyes you're all I see
Shine on, shine on, shine on
Won't you turn your light on me, yeah

(Solo)

Foolish anger is the flame
That burns inside, it calls your name
'Cause by a river, my soul is bleeding
Hold me now

Shine on
Only you can set me free
Shine on
Close my eyes you're all I see
Shine on, shine on, shine on
Only you

Shine on
Only you can set me free
Shine on
I close my eyes you're all I see
Shine on, shine on, shine on
Won't you turn your light on me
