Hey girl where you going to

Can you see the years unfold

Do you know how it changes you

When the years have taken their toll


Hey girl look around you

Do you see the lights all burned out

No don't let them drown you

In empty hopes and doubt


But let it shine for you know that you'd be blind

Not to see the end of the line in time

The ruins of the life you had in mind

So don't give in let it shine


So now here's a song for you

To see you safe on the road

For you know that I've walked there too

From all those years ago


Shine on shine on for the days are quickly gone

And there's still so much to be done

Don't lose sight of the one you left behind

The light inside let it shine
