Dan Auerbach - Shine On Me Lyrics




You only got a couple miles to go
If you're trying to drive me insane
I saw you crack a smile about a week ago
In the middle of the pouring rain

I climb the cliffs of dover to go drive out in the sun
I'm like a four leaf clover cause I hide from every one

Shine on me
Shine on me
Shine on me
Shine on me

When I get up I gotta get me a plan
To do whatever I can I suppose
I'm already working for my uncle sam
You know he's got me counting Cheerios

Crying on my shoulder, I'm allergic to the tears
It's tiring for this solider to pretend for all these years

Shine on me
Shine on me
Shine on me
Shine on me

Gotta keep my Ray-Bans on so my eyes won't burn
If I can shed no light upon my number one concern

Shine on me
Shine on me
Shine on me
Shine on me

Shine on me
Shine on me
Shine on me
Shine on me

Shine on me
Shine on me
Shine on me
Shine on me

    Heard this played on the last episode of the Australian series 'Offspring', they were all dancing to this-I feel like dancing ever since!

  6. Hunter West

    So flippin great!

  7. steveeb

    I heard this in the grocery store yesterday. When I arrived it was playing "shine on me shine on me". When I was done shopping it was still playing "shine on me, shine on me." I was looking at the produce guy and thinking that I'd hate to have to listen to this all day.

  8. Persephanie

    🎶 Playin’ with the queen of hearts.. 🎶 Oh wait... 🤔

  9. Nicholas Joannette

    This song alone asserts a veritable genius; 3 minute symphony!

  13. marco dell'orso

  15. das 1988

    Oh my God...THIS SONG IS AWFUL. 3:18 long AND 26 SHINE ON ME'S ?????.😂😂😂..my local store brought me here. It's always playing on the intercom system. It sucks, it is just another repetitive pop song that uses one phrase and repeats it over and over again.....awful...

  16. Arkansas Reaper

    Great song! But what a WACKED video. Lol

  17. Pete p.

    Omg I get it.....I get it now.....

    You only got a couple miles to go
    If you're trying to drive me insane
    I saw you crack a smile about a week ago
    In the middle of the pouring rain

    I climb the cliffs of dover to go drive out in the sun
    I'm like a four leaf clover cause I hide from every one

    Shine on me
    Shine on me
    Shine on me
    Shine on me

    When I get up I gotta get me a plan
    To do whatever I can I suppose
    I'm already working for my uncle sam
    You know he's got me counting Cheerios

    Crying on my shoulder, I'm allergic to the tears
    It's tiring for this solider to pretend for all these years

    Shine on me
    Shine on me
    Shine on me
    Shine on me

    Gotta keep my Ray-Bans on so my eyes won't burn

    Shine on me
    Shine on me
    Shine on me
    Shine on me

    Shine on me
    Shine on me

    Shine on me

    Shine on me
    Shine on me
    Shine on me
    Shine on me

  29. TresGame

    Ben buraya nasıl geldim mq

  30. StopWhatYerDoing

    Had this stuck in my head today, no clue where I first heard it. But man is it a fun and catchy song

  31. Kyldrian Studios

    Doesn't this sound like it belongs in the 70s? Truly awesome

  32. Revolver Ocelot

    I heard this fuckin gay song on the radio driving to Los Angeles and I couldn't get it out of my head. I even tried bashing my head against the window and I still couldn't get it out.

  33. Stavros Bannoura

    This sounds very beatles like, i love it

  34. drew stevens

    Juice Newton - Queen of Hearts (1981) distant cousin ?

    Doctor Mu

    The Rockpile/Dave Edmunds (1979) version of Queen of Hearts is a lot better. and yes, this song does sound like Rockpile.

    Dave Edmunds, Nick Lowe (bass), Billy Bremmer (guitar), Terry Williams (drums - later with Dire Straits) in all their glory.

    Dan Auerbach - Shine On Me, Lyrics

    (Verse 1) 
    You only got a couple miles to go 
    If you're tryin' to drive me insane 
    I saw you crack a smile about a week ago 
    In the middle of the pourin' rain

    LEGGI TUTTO »

    (Pre-Chorus) 
    So I climbed the cliffs of Dover 
    To go dry out in the sun 
    Now I'm like a four leaf clover 
    'Cause I hide from everyone

    (Chorus) 
    Shine on me 
    Shine on me 
    Shine on me 
    Shine on me

    (Verse 2) 
    When I get up I gotta get me a plan to 
    Do whatever I can I suppose 
    I'm already working for my Uncle Sam 
    You know he's got me countin' Cheerios

    (Pre-Chorus) 
    No more crying on my shoulder 
    I'm allergic to the tears 
    It's trying for this soldier 
    To pretend for all these years

    (Chorus) 
    Shine on me 
    Shine on me 
    Shine on me 
    Shine on me

    (Bridge) 
    I gotta keep my Ray-Bans on 
    So my eyes won't burn 
    While they shed new light upon 
    My number one concern

    (Chorus) 
    Shine on me 
    Shine on me 
    Shine on me 
    Shine on me 
    Shine on me

  37. largestmikey

    heard this in the mcdonalds washroom

  38. Realist

    Not his deepest lyrics clearly.. but a simple melody, great guitar backing with a punchy tag line is so hypnotic

    Pokey Soggybottom

    Just too bad it's not his. He shamelessly ripped off Juice Newton's "Queen Of Hearts". Not cool.

  39. William Saddington

    I like to think this video and Father John Misty’s “Date Night” exist in the same universe

  40. Bruce O'Handley

    A great song, but overproduced. I find those backup singers to be very annoying.

  41. Samer Ali

  44. Vishesh Likhitkar

    Nice song,love from India

  45. JOHN GOUZOUASSIS

    how beautiful this song matched with the "instant family" movie..

    Evan Raw

    Wow, i only just realised that. I remember watching it and thinking that the music was well suited to the film, the only track I can remember recognising is "What Is Life" by George Harrison.

  46. Xale l'ombre de geek !

    Ella Lopez

  47. a business or other

    Well I guess you weren't born yesterday with computers in your papa's hands
    I'm starting to hate outfits like google and microsoft and amazon, but i don't know how

  48. a business or other

    Dan Auerbach, how can you step on Shine On Me? You don't want to. It's reserved. Kingston Wall. it's been a legend for nearly two decades. I trust you'll find a way to respect the original. If not, you leave us Finns in the dark, haha.

  49. Psych0nautilus

    It´s a copy of Runnin down a Dream by tom petty and the heartbreakers

    Pokey Soggybottom

    He blatantly rips of Juice Newton's "Queen Of Hearts". Look it up. I hope she got royalties.

  50. Carlos Herrera

    Love this jam, I herd it at the gym and got hooked on it. Lol

  51. Andrew Kyle

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  52. Omar Hadji

    Instant family?

  53. TheNickos66

    Early Black Keys was the way forward...this stuff is a pop car crash!

  54. Eylem H.

    Bizimkiler de anca gidip bumtamtama TR yazsınlar şarkının güzelliğine kalp

  55. thetwoboyos??

    So Did the frog come second...
    Or was it the Cat?...

  56. Liz Lopez

    Hey Dan! thank this song to George Harrison , coz really this song sounds a lot with George Harrison

  57. Nilles

    First time i had to read mark Knopfler contributed instead of hearing it. Nevertheless awesome o 2.0

  58. FITHROC 3

    Just enjoy the song instead of saying it sounds like this or that
    SHINE ON ME

  59. GhosTeen

    Impulse (serie) anyone?

  60. Joe Attard-Owen

    Is it me or do the guitar and bass lines sound a lot like "Jesus is a Friend of Mine" by Sonseed?

  61. Daniel Mohave

    Thank you IMPULSE! 😍😍😍🙌

  62. Brian krimpens

    makes me happy

  63. QUATTROQUARTI ASSOCIAZIONE CULTURALE

    Hearing this song one thinks to the Beatles. Or not?

  64. Adrián Hernández

    There is a girl I like a lot that showed me Dan's music and I might not end up with her but damn she at least showed me very good fucking music

  65. sdawwwww

    Mark Knopfler's guitar

  66. Shazam

    Impulse, anyone ?

  67. Leo Andres

    Give me the Drugs Dan..

  68. scott johnson

    I've been hearing this a lot on the Americana live stream route 650.....
    but I've just recently checked out some of the video.
    I noticed Auerbach looks like Daniel Bryan....and Nathaniel Rateliff like Bray Wyatt.

  69. LTNetjak

    Am I the only one that hears "Shadow Creeper" instead of "Shine on me" during the chorus?

  70. Ben Richard

    Some one was taking acid writing this lol

  71. Rafat 1243

    Don't take drugs

  72. Ginea25

    I'm here because of Ella.

  73. Humoility Copta

    Don't believe a word out of level 3, all of them, not that someone normal is - you won't have time to point out the obvious of parameters that they falsely claim as or for? the best they make that standard hateful simple outrage; they release about one song a year; this was last year's only average level of one - they're cheap, at level 8:45-6, -7. 4's lie for fascist reasons. I'm not saying it's more than how dumb i can be all day long, but let's not be that thatched "nurturing" of stone, under what level 3's tell us; you'll be okay; because we all have rights, and I am not actually one to diminish the care and quality people earn but it doesn't - this is the one mistake they push, while people are trying to help me for just being discriminated way against and sick for it - is that then level 3 manages it like for a kind of almost nightmare for what they don't take into account about whole continents, not just what are real risks that it's buying off for most people going along with it; you might need to limit things to pure level 6 abusive interests riding the fallen earth if you don't at all teach true integrating economically and socially how spirit ever is free in this world - and 3's are just too unbelievably dumb as punks, and have beyond made an economy of what can't be integrated at all except for it normalizing sensitive people who aren't really made of stone but for being terrified and rejected at all. If you did choose to include accept gay people unlike what the church bitterly contests in this above description (i say bad it if any people love each other/themselves more kindly), it wouldn't take much of more than this management soon a whole reality in all leverage of not considering equal feminine spirit to reclaim and re-integrate with any humaneness/standards people who as morally would otherwise only be used to affect their spirit not rising as the easy happy answer - who would? - that level 5 and lower obsession about it, because you can ruin spirit even as music helps. I'm not fallen.

    Jokanaan

    I very much enjoyed reading this. I read it closely a few times to better understand what you are saying. Thank you

  74. Boi Man

    So why is nobody talking about the bass line? Makes my dick hard

  75. Jackson_Is_Decent

    I heard you on a radio station here in Mexico and I came to listen this piece of art again.

  85. lasbragasrojas

    I got my mind
    SET ON YOU
    SET ON YOU

  86. Aaron Farrokh

    Great song, but the Traveling Wilbury’s released this song in 1988 called “It’s Alright”.

    Pokey Soggybottom

    That's similar too, but compare Juice Newton's "Queen Of Hearts" from 1981. This is one of the most egregious rip-offs I've ever come across. I hope she got royalties.
