lyrics

everybody’s lost on their own road
trying to lose whatever baggage they can unload
their thumbs are out in the hot sun, and everybody’s looking to catch one
but you won’t find love within asphalt and bone

maybe Jane was just listening to the rain
dance along that greyhound window pane
when somewhere along I-95, the sigh in her lungs met the tear in her eye
as she rubbed her hand where your ring used to be

but she keeps shining on, just like every setting sun
keep shining on, just like every setting sun
our days are numbered and these nights keep raging on
but keep shining on, just like every setting sun

an umbrella thrown forms a cross with the yellow line
torn pages float over windshields into the sky
the silence sounds it’s own alarm, like stretcher waiting with open arms,
until the flashing lights break the night open wide

but keep shining on, just like every setting sun
keep shining on, just like every setting sun
our days are numbered and these nights keep raging on
but keep shining on, just like every setting sun

some men tread water and some just drown
some never leave the shore at all
but come hell or high water, when they lower me down
I’ll be smiling with wide open arms

but the heavens rarely offer any sign
or relief from these anxieties of our time
but go tilt your head up to the stars and you'll fail to make sense of this life of ours
maybe it’s better to drop than rot on the vine

but keep shining on, just like every setting sun
keep shining on, just like every setting sun
our days are numbered and these nights keep raging on
but keep shining on, just like every setting sun
