Shine Like Gold

Album: Single release only (2017)
  • Fear in your eyes like you’re lookin' for a window
    For the wide open skies wonderin' where do I begin though?
    If you knew how bright you shine
    Do you think it might change your mind?
    The clouds are on fire, and they’re telling you something that they know

    You shine like gold
    You shine like gold

    Remember what you said when you drove all night from Memphis?
    That the headlights of your eyes were running from the tempest
    Well the dawn broke through the black
    When you’re laughin', lookin' back
    No matter how dark, the morning comes up relentless

    You shine like gold
    You shine like gold
    And your soul was born to shine
    Like a spark (like a spark)
    In the night (in the night)
    In the dark, it hides your glow

    When the thoughts, in your mind, are like fears
    And they take you places
    [Run?], like it’s hard, to believe
    And the achin' feeling
    Lost, find it harder to breathe
    Remember what you know

    You shine like gold
    You shine like gold

    You shine like gold
    You shine like gold
    And your soul was born to shine
    Like a spark (like a spark)
    In the night (in the night)
    In the dark, it hides your glow
