Starting to Shine ©2008 Larry Suess
And found she’d stripped the windows bare and sacked our dreams
A bird outside my window kept on chirping merrily
Proclaiming nothing’s quite as bad as it might seem.
For every door that‘s closing there’s a window opening wide
Behind every mountain looming something blooms on the other side
For every dream that’s leaving there’s a new storyline
Beyond that blue horizon the sun is starting to shine.
Every romance, body part, and machine
But I never would have met you if I hadn’t gone in for repair
Now I find you there in all my imagining. (Chorus)
I pushed the boulder up the mountain only to see it crash on down
But when I jumped out of the way I found myself on stable ground. (Chorus)
When the monuments all start to turn to sand
When the ground beneath our feet is swirling, whirling ‘round
I find my bearings just by holding your hand. (Chorus)
