Track Name: Shine
I feel like I’m young again,
Let the useless fight begin.
If you’re not dying, everything’s fine.
I think of the West Fork Cane,
Imagine the time I’d save
If I still listened the way I could.

Crosses in the dark light the sky.
Crosses in the dark shine.

Tell me about the times you cried,
Laughing, I’ll stand by.
I’m not worried but something’s breaking.
I’ll cut off my hands to pray.
I’ll sing us praise by day,
And by night, I’ll lie awake.

Every day we wait, and hide.
Every day we pretend to shine.

I want you to live again.
I want you to shine.

Track Name: I'll Fly Away
Some glad morning when this life is o'er, I'll fly away.
To that home on God's celestial shore, I'll fly away.
I'll fly away, oh glory, I'll fly away in the morning.
When I die, Hallelujah by and by, I'll fly away.

When the shadows of this life have gone, I'll fly away.
Like a bird from prison bars have flown, I'll fly away.
I'll fly away, oh glory, I'll fly away in the morning.
When I die, Hallelujah by and by, I'll fly away.

Just a few more weary days and then I'll fly away.
To a place where joy shall never end, I'll fly away.
I'll fly away, oh glory, I'll fly away in the morning.
When I die, Hallelujah by and by, I'll fly away.

Albert E. Brumley, 1929
