So much fog that sunrise formed a blinding white band across the horizon
In between the grey of sky and ocean
And the light’s diffused, it’s so used to the call of many voices
It goes shining out, shining out, shining
Shining, shine shining, shine

Your hand is on the small of my back and our talking turns to life-boat rafts
That will not save us should we fall overboard
So I try to ignore the small warmth that is your hand
But too far from land this heat expands and it’s shining
Shining, shine shining, shine

Pulled in two directions, the cradle rocks under the moon
Twins move in separate ways, our hearts’ path is hewn in two
But I’m traveling to the city my eyes gather their blue
As part of me stays on these north highways watching for you, watching for you
Watching for you

People can say this is all past tense
As your face fades with time and distance,
but you know legends grow from just a brief glimpse of
Something beautiful, something strange
And if I ever see your face again, you know my eyes will be shining
Shining, shine shining, shine
