lyrics

On those days you can hardly hold your head above ground
There seems to be no reason left to put a smile on
But then there’s something happening so small it hardly doesn’t at all
For a little thing, it really leaves a mark
That’s where it all starts

Look at how most everything shines
Out and into the daylight
Don’t forget to leave some time to
Stop and feel it

Nothing’s wrong but it feels like the earth has stopped
Eating away all those minutes that have been building up
Keep on looking for a better stance
Aim at a place you’d go to dance
Anyone of them could sure be anything
That’s where it all starts

Look at how most everything shines
Out and into the daylight
Don’t forget to leave some time to
Stop and feel it

Look for a line to lead to a brighter side
Stay awake just to catch that escaping sight
Slow down for a while and let it in
Just a little, just a little more

Think nothing of it when it all goes dark
It will shine again soon

Look at how most everything shines
Out and into the daylight
Don’t forget to leave some time to
Stop and feel it

(There’s so much left to understand
Why can’t there always be a plan?
If we all just never move,
We’ll miss the clue)
