    Shinin
    Sweet Sunshine, let the sun shine, let the sun shine on us

    I watched the days play, remember you calling
    I held it down, thought I was balling
    The sunset, reflects upon our dreams
    Together, life was never what it really seems
    All things we took each other thru
    In many ways you’ll always be my boo
    My last impression, leave no question
    No footprints on sandy confessions
    Let it play…play on

    I watched the rivers roll, the water cascade
    This is what we made
    I could cry a river, but that won’t mean a thing
    I could write you, listen to your soul sing
    Puttin it down for this long, what’s one more?
    I tried so hard, but I always felt you wanted more
    Lord knows my heart, my ambit
    We wasn’t ready so I never could understand it
    The message you sent, so hard to reply
    How do you drift away from the sun in the sky?

    I can see, I can see, what goes down
    Music plays with no sound…
    The mirror sees me, but there is no mirror
    Old pictures fade but they become clearer
    Panoramics become portals in view
    Cherished becomes debri in my rearview
    I got a dollar that can’t be spent
    Did you get the message that I sent?
    Red seas split among hearts like braids on the porch
    What happens next, who carries the torch?
