  • So tired sleeping through the day
    Bloodshot eyes and sweat from my body
    And I picked my head up yesterday
    Found the reason of hope left inside of me

    But I still believe in immortal love
    And I know there's someone above

    Shine down, don't take it away from me, no
    And I know you know how, yeah
    Shine down, just give me a chance to feel it
    It's taken forever to get me off the ground

    Dead silence overwhelming me
    Deny takes it's toll on my sanity
    And I know I've been away too long
    All these years I've been hiding
    I'm feeling I'm coming strong

    But I still believe in immortal love
    And I know there's someone that's up above
    Show me a path to find my way
    And give me a reason pray

    Shine down, don't take it away from me, no
    And I know you know how, yeah
    Shine down, just give me a chance to feel it
    It's taken forever to get me off the ground

    Shine down, don't take it away from me, no
    And I know you know how, yeah
    And shine down, just give me a chance to feel it
    It's taken forever to get me off the ground
    Shine down
    Shine down
    Oh, shine down
    Oh baby, yeah, yeah, yeah
    Shine down
    Oh, shine down
    Oh, shine down
    Oh baby shine down Writer/s: JAMES SHANNON LARKIN, ROB MERRILL, SALVATORE P. ERNA, TONY ROMBOLA

  • Zero from Nowhere, NjI feel I can relate to this song, I used to sleep all through the day and doubt my faith in a higher power. Now I've found a reason to live and "I'm feeling I'm coming strong".

    on my computer!! Its talking about faith & belief in this song. This almost reminds me of a
    religious song than it does a rock song.
