Light, Shine...Bright Enough For Ya?

Today's Manic Word is light. First thing that came to mind was this song. You'll soon find out that "light" is nowhere to be found in the lyrics. But I thought light...sun...shine -- works, no? Plus, it's very optimistic and forceful even, thought I'd share it with you all today (also dedicated to a dear friend). Enjoy!

Anna Nalick

The night makes you a star
And it holds you cold in its arms
You’re the one to whom nobody verses I love you
Unless you say it first
So you lie there holding your breath
And its strange how soon you forget
That you’re like stars
They only show up when it’s dark
Cause they don’t know their worth

And I think you need to stop following misery’s lead
Shine away shine away shine away
Isn’t it time you got over how fragile you are
We’re all waiting
Waiting on your supernova
Cause that’s who you are
And you’ve only begun to shine

There are times when the poets and pornstars align and
You won’t know who to believe in
Well that’s a good time to be leavin’
And the past knocks on your door
And throws stones at your window at 4 in the morning
Well maybe he thinks it’s romantic
He’s crazy but you knew that before

Yeah you’ve only begun to shine
Won’t you shine shine shine shine over shadow
Shine shine shine shine over shadow
Shine shine shine shine over

Haha. I always feel like I'm only beginning to shine. I guess we should all listen to this a little more!
