Who-oo cares for the life we've earned?
Someone's saved all the truth you've earned
Remember when we used to shine?
And had no fear? Or sense of time?
(It creeps up on you)
You can't cry now
There's nothing to feel
No-one's noticed our loneliness
Remember when you used to tease?
And make us scream eternal joys
We believed that you'll always be here
'Cause once you promised a life with no fear
Please don't break my ideals
And say what's fake was always real
Hope was the one, now I'm gone
Take us back again.
Both an electric and acoustic version were recorded. The electric version is officially referred to simply as "Shine" and includes the arpeggios from Bliss and from the chorus of Falling Away With You, whereas the acoustic version is referred to as "Shine Acoustic". The lyrics between the two versions differ very slightly; in the second verse of "Shine", Matt says 'you should have teased', whereas in "Shine Acoustic" he says 'you used to tease'.
Throughout the acoustic version, thunder and rain can be heard. Also, at 0:34 in the acoustic version, Dominic Howard can be heard saying "1, 2, 3, 4". Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
