Jon Allen – Shine On Me lyrics

Shine on me darling won’t you shine while you can
While your holding my heart in the palm of your hand
Oh your love is a shelter but time is a thief
And forever’s a promise that I know you can’t keep

Tell me your secrets baby tell me your lies
Cause you know I believe you when I look in your eyes
And I’m sure that your leaving’s gonna make me feel blue
But right now I can’t think of a better way I could lose

I can’t keep the morning from stealing you away
I can’t stops the clock no I can’t hold back the day

So won’t you shine on me darling while the night is in bloom
While we’re just shadows dancing on the walls of your room
While the stars are all waiting and the moons riding high
Won’t you shine on me darling dry those tears for your eyes

They say the brightest candle will always burn out fast
But maybe some things are just to good to last

You can turn a blind eye to all that you feel
You can put off living with the strength of your will
But the clock goes on ticking to the beat of your heart
And sooner or later it’s gonna tear you apart
