The Ballroom Thieves – Shine Lyrics

Shine Lyrics By The Ballroom Thieves

Tears of light drip through my hotel window
And into tired eyes
They yawn across the ceiling
Cracked and flaking like old stones
Resting on the dresser
With the coffee and the key
Shine a light

Turn the night back into morning
Shine a light
Take the night away from me
Will I wake up somewhere quiet and palatial?
A museum or a daydream
Will I wake up in a town I should have slept
through? Oh
Oh

All the minutes feel like hours
Feel like seconds
Feel like days

Am I here?
Are you awake? Am I away?
Am I anyone at all
Do I even have a body anymore?

Tears of light drip from my eyes
Through the floor into the lobby
Where they pool like blood or water
Til the sun burns down the dawn
Pulls the vapor back up to my starving lungs
And into corners

Of my brain
That I don’t know or even care to
Am I here?

Am I alone and do I dare to
Shine a light
Turn the night back into morning
Shine a light

Take the night away from me
Shine a light
Turn the night back into morning
Shine a light
Take the night away from me
