Shine

I wrote this song thinking about the various troubles we’ve experienced this year and how divided people seem to be; whether through race, religion, politics, ideology or belief.

I got my eye on the mountain

I can see far ahead

The sky is clear there

No grey clouds to obscure our way

What we need now is to take our anger and throw it away

What we need now is to cast our fear to the wind

I got my mind on the next year

I can think far ahead

The days are clear there

No worries to obscure our way

What we need now is to sit down here and talk about it

What we need now is to find some friendship and love

I got my hand on your shoulder

I can reach far ahead

The path is clear there

No hatred to obscure our way

What we need now is to recognise we’re both the same

What we need now is to accept our differences

What we need now is to stand side by side and face it

What we need now is to come together and shine

We need to come together

And shine
