Shining Through

from by Kris Kehr



I wrote this for Magnetic North to play, an open an epic pen to finding you love and your way in life.


Time is tight and time is flying
Flying right but I keep on trying holding on
As time goes flying by

But the time is right I keep on finding
Finding right where I was trying to hold on
Holding on to time

Fools rush in where shadows fear to tread
I rode that line wherever that it led
I just kept driving on & on & on & on & on

Shine a light & keep on shining
Shine it bright and keep on finding where you are
As time goes flying by

But night will fall all around you
Keeps you still and where it found you in the light
When the day turns into night

Darkness shines like a mirror to the soul
Looking in on all those miles on the road
Too much time spent wondering where the whole thing goes

Here we are in the moment
Time has passed and keeps on rolling down the line
Further down the line

A warm embrace, a sudden smile
I see your face through the miles, there you are
I've been waiting a long time

Misdirection wherever that I turned
Cross those bridges just to stop & watch them burn
It’s a long & twisted dirty road that leads back home

Daylight breaks and finds me staring
At the door and I can barely stand the light
Shining in my eyes

Watching out from my castle on the hill
Many years I've wasted there until
I’ve seen your face come shining through
And found my way back home to you
