Shine On                                           
Words & Music by Chris de Burgh
                  
F        C      Bb                       F
Shine on, brighter than the sun,
Bb                      F             Gm                            C
Live for every moment, before the moment's gone,
F             C     Bb                      F
We shine on, you and me tonight,
Bb                     F
Way across the universe,
Gm                 C                  F
Burning like a fire in the night;
 
F                          Am/E
I was looking at a photograph,
F7/Eb                                               Gm
Taken in a garden long before the war,
                            Bbm
And out on the lawn,
                F                         Am/E                Dm
There were old men and dogs and little children,
                  Gm - F          C
All of them gone     forever;

F                                             Am/E
And there were people by the waterside,
F7/Eb                                                     Gm
Standing in the same place where I am today,
                      Bbm                           F
Nothing has changed - but you know,
                  Am/E             C/D
That time is moving like a river,
Dm                 Gm - F         C
It can only be love     forever;
Bb - C      Bb - C
Ah_____, ooh.____
 
F      C/F  Bb/F                    F/C
Shine on, brighter than the sun,
Bb/F                 F/C           Gm                            C
Live for every moment, before the moment's gone,
     F       C/F  Bb/F                     F/C
We shine on, you    and me tonight,
Bb/F                 F/C
Way across the universe,
Gm                 C                  Bb/F - C - Bb/F - C
Burning like a fire in the night;

There are those who can never cross,
The space between a father and a son,
When they are young,
We must say all the words that should be spoken,
Before they are lost forever;

And I was looking at a photograph,
Taken from a window way above the world,
And we've got to learn,
We must leave here a garden for our children,
When we are gone forever;

We shine on, brighter than the sun,
Live for every moment, before the moment's gone,
We shine on, you and me tonight,
Way across the universe,
Burning like a fire in the night;

Leave here a garden for the children,
Leave here a new world,
In the night, in the night,
Burning like a fire in the night.
