    "Shine" Lyrics

    Poor Old Lu

    'Shine' was written awhile before Mindsize was recorded
    and, in fact, had no ties
    (musically) to any other songs that we had written.
    It was set apart in that it featured piano,
    something we hadn't had much of before.
    In retrospect, naming the song 'Shine' wasn't the brightest
    idea (no pun intended)... since every band out there
    seems to have a 'Shine' song. Oh well.

    This song's meaning can really be wrapped up in the
    chorus, "In a simple way, though I be so wrong,
    though I turn away, I know where I belong".

    Sometimes we turn to the right or to the left looking
    for what we think is needed in our lives,
    but we can only be fulfilled in Christ.

    What is it like when it's gone?
    All the day and the night and the song
    And what seems so real
    Is what keeps us from the dawn

    Truly I know it sometimes
    I see the reasons and signs
    That this world can only
    turn so many times

    In a simple way
    Though I be so wrong
    Though I turn away
    I know where I belong

    Feelings all around in me
    Do this, do that, and you'll see
    That it's hard to find
    Just what we need where we seek

    I'll say it again that I've tried
    To find the right ways on this ride
    Where we're upside down
    And we still will try to hide

    In a simple way
    Though I be so wrong
    Though I turn away
    I know where I belong

    And the Son will shine
    And the reign won't fall
    And I know inside
    How He loves us all

    Our hands will get so that they
    Can't pull us up all the day
    We need to find that
    now we have to say
