Anna Nalick - Shine Lyrics




Oh, the night makes you a star
And it holds you cold in its arms
You're the one to whom nobody verses I love you
Unless you say it first
So you lie there holding your breath
And it's strange how soon you forget
That you're like stars
They only show up when it's dark
Cause they don't know their worth

And I think you need
To stop following misery's lead
Shine away, shine away, shine away

Isn't it time you got over
How fragile you are
We're all wait-
Waiting on your supernova
Cause that's who you are
And you've only begun to shine

There are times when
The poets and porn stars align and
You won't know who to believe in
Well that's a good time to be leavin'
And the past, it knocks on your door
And throws stones at your window at 4 in the morning
Well maybe he thinks it's romantic
He's crazy but you knew that before

And I think you need
To stop following misery's lead
Shine away, shine away, shine away

Isn't it time you got over
How fragile you are
We're all wait-
Waiting on your supernova
Cause that's who you are
And you've only begun to shine

Yea you've only begun to shine
Won't you shine, shine, shine
Shine over shadow, oh oh
Shine, shine, shine
Shine over shadow, oh oh
Shine, shine, shine, shine over

And I think you need
To stop following misery's lead
Shine away, shine away, shine away

Isn't it time you got over
How fragile you are
We're all wait-
Waiting on your supernova
Cause that's who you are
And you've only begun to shine

Yeah you've only begun to shine
Yeah you've only begun to shine

    November 2019, and I still listen to Anna daily...

  2. Yawina Rada

    Oh, this video is already 10 years! I used to watch this in 2008 :-) :-D

  3. Precious Sparkle

    Here on 13/11/2017❤

  4. Stephanie Bullock

    Anna Nalick is my all time most favorite singer/poet!

  5. midnight dreamer

    I was half listening to this song and I suddenly heard "porn stars" and was like wtf

  6. Emily Major

    incredible... I feel like I need this song in my wedding somehow :)

  7. Andrew Phillips

    Inspiring! lovely girl too.

  8. Hootowlnumber 1

    This song always seems to find me when i need it most...

    Chiara

    ❤️ Just found this song now, it's amazing!

  9. Imagin8io

    This is the one, this is the song I'm showing my sister this Christmas. Was looking for a song to lift her up after a couple of shitty years, thank you so much for this gorgeous song!

  10. Cryptidian

    One Tree Hill anyone?

  11. Matthew Hewitt

    Anna Nalick*********

  12. Accidental Relevance

    Just saw her in Tulsa. It's hard to describe the rich texture of her voice and how effortlessly it flows out of her. When she's singing It just feels like Christmas morning.

  13. SONIC FOXX MUSIC

    Anna ...BREATHE drew me here...LOVED IT!!!...absolutely...i'm a writer and wrote the lyrics to the following song..."BREATHE by JASMINE LAMPORT".....be warned it's mellow..i swear good songs are made with the title BREATHE.

  14. KS Goldagi

    this song is incredibly moving. it really reminds you what youre worth. the power in her voice only reinforces that fact. 

  15. Anahfree

    Love this song gives me strength to go on...
     Thanks Anna

    Chiara

    💗 This song is really good😊 and I'm glad it gives you strength❤️❤️

  16. Anne K

    "Holding you're breath" come on this is an official video for a really cool song, it deserves better than awful spelling :(

    Hannah Marcano

    Anne K the point is that it’s her first rough draft of the song, as u can see multiple scribbles and things. It was her raw thoughts as she first wrote the song, and it’s messy and imperfect and that’s what makes it beautiful :)

  17. Makayla Oloughlin

    I love the way she says super nova

  18. Felix Platero

    this song makes see the light at the other side of the tunnel ... thanks anna

  19. DigitalSoda

    This song saved my life last nite...

  20. Kenny Anstiger Composer

    Never heard of you util now, and I'm so glad I've discovered you. I have liked and subscribed to you. Looking forward to hearing your catalogue Anna ;-)

  21. littlesis818

    One Tree Hill brought me here! (:

  22. zaz

    To whomever compared Anna to Taylor Swift...get a head-check. Anna is far more talented than that powder cream puff plastic doll.

    Aside from being a brilliant singer, Anna is a far better writer as well.

    Web No Rio - Criação de Sites

    Why people need to put one person against another? They both are great

  23. Mayara Kelly B

    ela é foda *-*

  24. Jubal Harshaw

    In my college days I was the student Music Director at our school's FM station. And I got into a habit I thought was "cool" that I got from some interview in Rolling Stone with some rocker/producer, that if a song didn't "grab" you in the first 5 or 7 seconds, it didn't get on the air. God knows how much good music didn't get airplay! How Stupid! Anyway, I wasn't counting seconds but...I was kinda losing interest when your chorus HIT and OH MY GOD! Thank you! Thank you!

  25. Etup Luster

    I was cutting one night and suddenly I heard your song on a tumblr blog and thanks to your angelic voice I didn't cut for 6 months.

  26. Stephanie Smoluk

  31. John Brandkamp

    This is bringing tears of joy to my eyes.

  32. Lostmyjosh1

    Please, anyone out there that is contemplating suicide...listen to these beautiful lyrics and know how many people love you and want to see your "supernova" shine! Miss you every day, sweet Joshua.

  33. Raenoleah

    it's funny; "shine" is Japanese for, basically, "go die." It's pronounced differently, though.

  34. MrTockTick

    @AndrewGilmore1986
    Agreed, good sir! I also thank any and all things holy for you, Miss Nalick, or I wouldn't have many of my closest friends.
    Personally... This song is getting me through an awful online class right now.

  35. TheJSPeeps

  38. Samantha Byrd

    Someone gave me this song to listen to because they said it reminded them of me. Well, I am happy they showed me this.<3

  39. Brian Young

    It's so interesting to see how much this song changed for Broken Doll and Odds and Ends.... so much more acoustic and simple.... I like both versions.....

  40. Evil Panda Alejandra

    I love this song more than words can say.

  49. Elizabeth NE

    Thank you for the information on the new album! That needs to be thumbs-upped to the top! I just found her website. I hope the album really does come out; I would be first in line to purchase it. I finally got my hands on a copy of Wreck of the Day the other week. I like this version of Shine better than the one on her website, but other than that the songs are amazing. It sounds like it's going to be a fantastic album! Keeping my fingers crossed it comes out soon!

  50. geegeezlouis86

    @missharibo4 She said she would release it by her birthday (March 30) but so far no word. =\ Of course I want her to release it only when she thinks it's perfect but gahhh the anticipation!

    @trio3d Who the hell is this beeber that you fools keep going on about?

  52. Miranda Riley

  73. KatherinaMinola2

    @guldria33 I don't know if this is too late. DO NOT get back with him. Call the cops. You are not the problem here. He is trying to manipulate you. That doesn't mean he's a bad person, just that he needs a lot of help. And he might be mad at you for calling the cops on him, but you are really helping him. If u are still in school, tell the school counselor or something. Good luck. Stay strong.

  74. KatherinaMinola2

    @guldria33 Hey there! I don't know if this is too late, but I hope it helps. DO NOT get back with him. Call the cops. You are not the problem here. He is trying to manipulate you. That doesn't mean he's a bad person, just that he needs a lot of help. Sometimes we all do. And he might be mad at you for calling the cops on him, but you are really helping him. If u are still in school, tell the school counselor or something. Good luck. Stay strong.

  75. 420Moonstruck

    Awww It's been too long........I love this song!!

  76. Aerboi98

    I can't believe this song wasn't a hit! I swear this & Breathe (2 am) got me through some seriously rough times...I hope Anna plans on making a comeback one of these days

  77. Deep Blue

    And amazingly, it gives me strength!

  78. Deep Blue

    Touched by the shines of the song and enjoyed its melody!

  79. MagicalZayz

    These lyrics are just beautiful. Insightful, creative, and deceptively simple in phrasing. And coupled with Anna's amazing voice, it's a real gem of a song. Love it so much - very inspiring. Thanks, Anna! ♥

  80. Rita McAfee

    @lostmyjoshua I'm so sorry about your son. I have struggled with depression myself for many years...and almost lost the battle a few times. It's good to still be breathing air. Take care. :)

  81. Michelle Danihelova

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAREST ANNA!!!

  87. WhileIDance

  92. jochevet

    anyone knows what anna nalick is doing? any new material?

  93. Amani Mohamed

    Ana bihib aganiha awi

  94. eMCeGy

    talks bout what people expects u to be... and kind of the pressure about what they want to see on you... "shine shine!",..., and maybe waiting for u to fall...

  95. madrysab

    what is this song about? i no that might sound stupid buuuuuuuuuuuuuut i have no clue

  96. Brian Horakh

    Liz - you need to stop following miseries lead. We can go supernova together. -Brian

  97. Nathaniel Dance

    an honest one. If your loved one had died a few days ago, would you be on youtube telling complete strangers? No. You'd show some respect for the dead.

  98. Nathaniel Dance

    I'm tired of people posting about dead loved ones all over youtube. If they really are dead you wouldn't go around telling everybody. Get over your need to feel pity and enjoy the song.
