Edenbridge - Shine Lyrics




The night is drawing on but all the strain not told on him
And he won't fall into the sleep of the just
To be a tumbler or a lonesome intruder
He is as good as gold and searching for trust

(Be), to be the harlequin who shines in dead gold
To kill those idle thoughts about this stronghold
(See), see the evening star in this sunset glow
Sailing the splendour ships straight on the port bow

Strike the sands of ever
The lingering sound of dreams
In harsh reality
Turn over a new leaf
Ardently desired
And forever

(Shine), it fired his imagination so far
And he gave rise to hope
(Shine), this true ring of conviction will leave a scar
(To) the dancer on a rope
(Shine), so where's the difference between man and machine?
And who will draw the line?
(Shine), the game is worth the candle, always been
May all the ways then shine

Sometimes he's worlds apart and elsewhere lies his dream
And he won't never shift the blame on you
Sometimes a parting kiss speaks louder than action
When life turns suddenly like a bolt from the blue

(He), he's not the silver slave supposed to be
He's on the rise to fame out of this tragedy
(Free), so now the odds are even, literally true
There is no limit to it all, there is no taboo

Strike the sands of ever
The lingering sound of dreams
In harsh reality
Turn over a new leaf
Ardently desired
And forever

(Shine), it fired his imagination so far
And he gave rise to hope
(Shine), this true ring of conviction will leave a scar
(To) the dancer on a rope
(Shine), so where's the difference between man and machine?
And who will draw the line?
(Shine), the game is worth the candle, always been
May all the ways then shine

Don't clip those wings of a flying
When wearing your heart on your sleeve
But still there is life among dying
The far cry off and make-believe

In this palatial hallway
Should all be null and void?
Between the tricks of fortune
In years that he enjoyed
He is the one enigma
High-flown beneath the sun
Is he the last resort?
When future has begun

(Shine), it fired his imagination so far
And he gave rise to hope
(Shine), this true ring of conviction will leave a scar
(To) the dancer on a rope
(Shine), so where's the difference between man and machine?
And who will draw the line?
(Shine), the game is worth the candle, always been
May all the ways then shine

    The night is drawing on but all the strain not told on him
    And he won`t fall into the sleep of the just
    To be a tumbler or a lonesome intruder
    He is as good as gold and searching for trust

    , to be the harlequin who shines in dead gold
    To kill those idle thoughts about this stronghold
    (see), see the evening star in this sunset glow
    Sailing the splendor ships straight on the port bow

    Strike the sands of ever
    The lingering sound of dreams
    In harsh reality
    Turn over a new leaf
    Ardently desired
    And forever

    , it fired his imagination so far
    And he gave rise to hope
    (shine), this true ring of conviction will leave a scar
    (to) the dancer on a rope
    (shine), so where`s the difference between man and machine ?
    And who will draw the line ?
    (shine), the game is worth the candle, always been
    May all the ways then shine

    Sometimes he`s worlds apart and elsewhere lies his dream
    And he won`t never shift the blame on you
    Sometimes a parting kiss speaks louder than action
    When life turns suddenly like a bolt from the blue

  7. Dan Hoerle

    Pretty power metal

  8. Gregory Winters

    1:59 eargasm crescendo

  9. naresh naresh

    Nightwish and edenbridge is the shortcut to fantasy

    Erik H.

    Don't forget Delain or Epica!!

  10. Zdeněk Hora

    BEAUTIFUL VOICE. BRILLIANT COMPOSITION
    HORACIUS, PRAGUE

  11. Alix Hakala

    Love the chorus to this one! her voice is so entrancing! One of my favorite Edenbridge songs \m/

    Z Tuber

    this song is one of their more epic ones

    Dan Hoerle

    This and Arcana are epic

    Dan Hoerle

    Great song I really like Arcana as well.

  12. Marc Moingeon

    It might be my favourite Edenbridge album... and this song is definitely one of its highlights. I love the progressive pieces from the band, I think that is where Lanvall shows all the scale of his talent. Sabine Edelsbacher was also starting to expand her vocal range and put more passion to her vocals...

  13. alevd14

    An excelent song.

  14. M. Dooms-daily

    In my opinion, This is just a song about the circle of life. Shine while you are alive and do what you can to possitivly affect everything around you. You will gain that light in time and shine down on new life no matter who you are or what you did. No need to worry about tiny things. It doesnt matter in the grand scheme. We all came from a dead star (super nova) and when we die, our dust will eventually rise to the nebula and provide the necessary materials to create brand new stars.

    "He" speaks about mankind and nature embodied together (some call it God)


  15. Bob Leduc

    Wonderful song. Never fails to make me smile.

  16. Liz N

    Weird lyrics, but I love the song

  17. Salzburgerstiegl

    my son is a rock-pianist and plays this song on his gigs, sometimes we play is together - just piano, Hammond organ and vocals. Here in Finland nobody knows that song but everybody is fascinated! 

    Marc Moingeon

    @Salzburgerstiegl Great that your son is spreading the word.... YOu've got some great melodic/symphonic metal bands in Finland, so people should like Edenbridge too ! If they get the chance to see the albums distributed and promoted.... Such a pity it's not the case, apparently. Well, same in France.

    Salzburgerstiegl

    @Marc Moingeon thanks Marc for your words. Yes Finland has much more to offer then Nightwish :)  b.t.w - I added a video from my son Tristan performing "Shine" solo. Search for : Edenbridge Shine piano cover 

    Arturo Perez

    Salzburgerstiegl what about Children Of Bodom,it's Death Metal,it's more heavy,but it's another great band

    naresh naresh

    Because in finland you got nightwish🤣

  18. joeschultz2

    Just found out about this group, love the song and presentation. Now, does anyone have any idea what the lyrics mean?  Either this is about some legend I don't know about, or the songwriter doesn't speak English very well and the lyrics are a word-for-word translation from German that doesn't make sense in English.  Any help would be appreciated.

    Preston Watkins

    It's about a man going against the grain of a dulled society, reaching enlightenment and shining above others due to his ability to feel, rather than to simply go along with what he's told as a machine would. After realizing the many years spent wasted as a human robot, he spreads his enlightenment as one may light thousands of candles using only a single flame, allowing everyone to shine with him and begin a new age.

    joeschultz2

    @Preston Watkins
    That's a very interesting comment.  I had envisioned him as a leader of the good rebels battling the bad guys guarding the castle. Sort of a Robin Hood type thing, but you have made me rethink that.  Is this your own interpretation or is this something you got from the band itself in an interview or some other way?

    Preston Watkins

    @joeschultz2 My own interpretation. My English teachers have rubbed off on me a bit too much in the over-examination department. It may just be an excellent song and nothing more.

    joeschultz2

    @Preston Watkins
    Well, it's a good interpretation, one that I will examine how it fits as I listen to the song.  It certainly would fit in with one of Edenbridge's central themes, that of entering a new age.  I listen to the song a lot, really I should buy the album.

    marlene lang

    @joeschultz2  Edenbridge are from Austria.

  19. White Wizard

    AWESOME!!!

  20. Daniel Cha

    why wuld any1 NOT want the full version.

  21. musicisthebestF

    Erm Symphony X is Progressive Power Metal believe me i listen to them since 1999

  22. musicisthebestF

    I discovered this Band through the Band Angra a Power Metal Band from Brazil who has a incredible guitarist

    Simone Edelsbacher sings on 2 Songs of Angra Temple of Shadows CD

    Oggy Fink

    you mean Sabine, probably... lol

  23. Herrsupersmart

    Thanks for the propositions but I have listen to theese bands for a longer time than Edenbridge.

  24. Andrew Morris

    Epica. though, IMO they are too centered around their soprano's voice and accompanying string symphonics, and lack the mind-blowing harmonic guitar solos of Edenbridge. a lot of other people like them though.

    Dan Hoerle

    Epica and edenbridge both very different but both real good.

  25. Mothdapple

    There's also Valentina and Leaves Eyes... And that's just going by what Pandora threw into my station. It even threw in Evanescence and Metallica after awhile.

  26. Ferenc van den Ham

    Stream of Passion, Edenbridge, Delain, Xandria, Nightwish, Evanescence, Epica, Era, Two Steps from Hell

  27. Marko Gacas

    She has magical voice!

  28. Steve Wolfe

    I'd strongly recommend adding Avantasia to that list as well :D

  29. Josh Alexander

    why is Nightwish and Symphony X on that list?

  30. Kevin Senecal

    There are some band with only one album, like Eyes of Eden. This stuff got me into Power Metal also like Sabaton, Dragonforce, Stratovarius, Lordi to name a few. Oh I forgot another good Symphonic Metal band, Within Temptation, but their music is not all metal some would be considered part of the New Age genre, which also brings into play music from Sarah Brightman. Some of her later music is more rock than pop.

  31. rapturedmourning

    Grrr...growl...rawr....AAA!...grrrrr
    Edit out Mark's vocals, and Epica = the best composition

  32. Daniel Jarratt

    Nightwish, too

  33. Brandon G

    Epica, Nightwish, Kamelot, Imperia, Therion, Leaves' Eyes, Delain, Stream of Passion, Visions of Atlantis, many more. x)

  34. Herrsupersmart

    Epica, Leaves' Eyes and Suncrown.

  35. Carlos Camacho

    Nightwish es del 96 Edenbridge es 98 ;) me encanta esta cancion ;)

  36. Waechterforum

    Wow, one of the best :)

  37. Randall2112

    Another great female-fronted metal band.They are awesome.

  38. Cthulu1985

    Therion and Sonata Arctica are quite different tho.

    I'd say, go for Nightwish, Within Temptation and Delain. They're more up thos alley.

  39. Joe Martinez

    Nightwish.

  40. Seidel Dietrich

    para que sepan este conjunto es austriaco lo mejor te este planeta l niños

  41. TheAvallanche

    Nightwish are Symphonic Power Metal...same as Edenbridge...Krypteria Sirenia and Lacuna Coil are Gothic metal...and the pioneers in edenbridge's genre are Nightwish...and in the whole symphonic metal Therion...Lacuna Coil pioneered nothing

  42. 2headskydragon

    also, nightwish, sirenia, and krypteria. the band that essentially pioneered this type of music was Lacuna Coil.

  43. Sebastian Blackthorne

    Um, could someone tell me what the song is about? I love the song, but I'd like to know what it's about.

  44. gravyc

    A few bands I discovered recently, who are quite similar to Edenrbidge are: 'Delain', 'Sonata Arctica' and 'Therion'.
    If you like bands like Edenbridge, then I'd say they are worth a listen :0)

  45. MTLNCK52

    It got you hooked also! Great music! The new release will be out this year I hope! I get updates from them.

  46. Herrsupersmart

    Yesterday I listened to this band first time. Now I can't stop listening this.

  47. Pug

    Beautiful!

  48. KhalDrogo666

    Oh my God!! This is so elfic... A great party in Rivendell rsrs...

  49. MTLNCK52

    @marriott58 This is the song that got me into EDENBRIDGE! I have all of their cds! Looking forward to many more!

  50. Lino Kurtz Marriott

    Marvellous !

  51. Simone Gualandi

    @TheWishmaster93 Il "They" era riferito a coloro che pensano che siano noiosi(People) e se leggi sotto ho anche scritto che ero un fan.
    Direi che ci siamo capiti male e io ho scritto malissimo...strano perché l'inglese lo conosco discretamente...

  52. MTLNCK52

    @JamesHetfield1996 I apologize for my comment! I misread your post. Maybe I should have said that they are because it's not Lady GaGA or Justin Beiber!

  53. Simone Gualandi

    @MTLNCK52 These they was referred to people that hate Edenbridge!

  54. Simone Gualandi

    @MTLNCK52 Maybe I explained badly,I like Edenbridge.
    I think that haters are boring.

  55. Simone Gualandi

    @TheWishmaster93 Non ho capito in che senso me le potevo risparmiare.
    Se hai inteso che penso che siano noiosi,hai sbagliato,se invece pensi che siano noiosi e hai capito perfettamente,non so che dire,a me piacciono,questione di gusti

  56. MTLNCK52

    @JamesHetfield1996 AW, you're just jealous! Idiotic wop! Plus, you probably like Lady GaGa and Justin Beiber! Go to the closet and play with yourself!

  57. MTLNCK52

    @JamesHetfield1996 AW, you're just jealous! Idiotic wop!

  58. Simone Gualandi

    People say that Edenbridge are boring...I say that they are boring and stupid!
    (Sorry for my english,I'm an italian fan!)

  59. Maria J. Bolivar

    this song is very awesome I really love it!!! *-*
