WHEN I'M WITH YOU
I DON’T SHINE *Pre-production mockup with Ken Pendergast. (Original unplugged version below)

Lyrics

I DON’T SHINE

We sit here at the table
Our lines drawn in the sand
No way to go forward
At least not hand-in-hand

We’ve been down every alleyway
We’ve chased down every lead
We gave it everything we’ve got
It’s time that I leave, ‘cause

I don’t shine
In your eyes anymore
No, I don’t shine
In your eyes anymore

A piece of our puzzle
Has fallen through the cracks
We fished on our hands and knees
But can’t get it back

It’s one of those mysteries
That we’ll never know
But somehow we recognize it’s time
To let it go, ‘cause

I don’t shine
In your eyes anymore
No, I don’t shine
In your eyes anymore
