Track Name: Shine
I woke up on the tent floor
Wondering where I was
Utah Montana Colorado Wyoming
Who knows where the hell I was
And I didn’t have an answer
That sounded anything like right
For I’ve been roving for a while
And I’ve seen so many people shine

I’ve seen so many people shine
That I thought it was a dream
And all that while I must had been
Lying on the tent floor
’Cause sometimes I just get lost

Sometimes I just get lost
And fall into the dreamworld
Which is more terrifying than lyfe
And my heart begins to pound
And tears prickle my eyes

In a panic I try to justify
This existence of mine
How is it I have this privilege
To see so many people shine

I see so many people shine
That I must be here for you
Not to live in any one place
But to show the eagle of heart
Lyfe is what we create

Lyfe is what we create
Lyfe is what we create
Lyfe is what we create
Lyfe is what we create
