Shine

Ooh I remem­ber those old love let­ters
Plagued with memor­ies, I can­’t for­get us
Try­ing to fight it, try­ing to hide it

Rekindled flames are not recom­men­ded
But it nev­er went out boy, it nev­er ended
Try­ing to fight it, try­ing to hide it
But your love it shines

In a cruel hard world
It’s a mir­acle to find
Someone good, someone whose love it shines
Your love it shines

Here in this apart­ment with oh too many rooms
Pearls once meant some­thing, they brought me only gloom
Try­ing to fight it, try­ing to hide it
Rekindled flames they’re not recom­men­ded
But it nev­er went out boy, it nev­er ended
Crime can fight it, lies can hide it
But your love it shines

In a cruel hard world
It’s a mir­acle to find
Someone good, someone whose love it shines
Your love it shines

You’d bet­ter shine your love, shine your love, shine it up
You’d bet­ter shine your love, shine your love, shine it up

In a cruel hard world
It’s a mir­acle to find
Someone good, someone whose love it shines
Your love it shines
