Dog's Eye View – Shine lyrics

Cut off your toes so you might walk little more slowly
Cut out your tongue so you couldn't say anything wrong
You held yourself up to the light so you might be forgiven
You held yourself up to the light and you just disappeared

And you've got a heart
And you've got an open window that you can't get through
There's light coming in
Sitting there wondering why you don't shine

You stayed up all night just hoping somebody might miss you
Stayed by the phone while nobody called
Then you put on a smile so you couldn't get any sadder
Put on a smile now you're holding a grudge

And you've got a heart
And you've got an open window that you can't get through
There's light coming in
Sitting there wondering why you don't shine
And why don't you shine?

Maybe if you put a little faith in your own voice
You might hear something
That makes sense to you
That makes sense to you

You've waited your whole life to stand up and count yourself in
But you never feel half as good or as bad as you know you should
And you put yourself down on the floor so you wouldn't be a bother
You put yourself down on the floor and you just turned to wood

And you've got a heart
And you've got an open window that you can't get through
There's light coming in
Sitting there wondering why you don't shine
And why don't you shine?

No, no, no, no, no, no, you don't know is I was getting better
But you don't, don't, don't, don't always want what you get
And you put it down and you shove it under the rug
And you find out you're [Incomprehensible]

Go out and find yourself and you're gliding all the way
Like I'm your little head and you know you just shine
Why don't I shine? And I wakeup every morning just hoping to feel
Like I shine and please let me shine
