The sands of time they flow so slow
I catch hell from everyone I know
And I'm so tired of being alone
So I get drunk and I just stay home

Looking in the mirror I get lost
I think about life's' choices and the cost
I wish I could stop and catch my air
And whoever said that life is fair

(Chorus)
Now it's been a long 25 years
Living life with all these fears
I'm holding on for a better day
Pray the sun will come and stay
Shine on me, shine on me

Life so hard, I'm so confused
Broken down, my soul's been used
And I know there won't be an excuse
But sometimes you got to cut the pain loose

Chorus

I know you won't understand
All I can do is all I can
I'm so weak when I need to be strong
And it won't be long until you find me gone

Now it's been a long 25 years
Living life with all these fears
I'm holding on for a better day
Pray the sun will come and stay
Shine on me, shine on me

Just shine on me (shine on me) 4x
