shine lyrics – laura marling

i have travelled past your window many times,
i find your face too hard to define.
i can’t touch you hollow thing,
you plagued my mind,
i can never go outside,
i will never go back to being blind.

i have wondered what you’re doing every day since last i asked.
your cheeks hollow i don’t like your eyes dark.

i need shine, i need shine, i need shine,
step away from my light i need shine.

i am honest now, not a shouter,
i am reformed, forgiven and reborn.
and you’ve been busy but you’ve missed me
and i plagued your mind.
you will never go outside,
you will never go back to being blind.

i need shine, i need shine, i need shine,
step away from my light i need shine.

i need shine, i need shine, i need shine,
step away from my light i need shine.
