Clay Aiken – Everything You Are

There are more love songs than anything else.

If songs could make you do something we’d all love one another.

~ Frank Zappa


You can try to hide away
From every drop of rain
That’s hanging over you
And you can say it’s all a waste
Lost your time and space
There’s nothing left to lose

Like a broken angel on the ground
Like a symphony without a sound
Turn around

Everything you are
Everywhere you’ve been
Sinner and the saint that fight the battle within
Every place you go
Everybody knows
Shadows fall across the sun somrtimes
You are gonna shine

It’s been a long time since I have listened to Clay Aiken sing the song titled Shine.

The song Shine was on Clay’s first album, Measure of A Man.

The song was written by – Lindy Robbins, Peter Gordeno, and Reed Vertelney.

It was a quiet hit.

 I remember that my son and his friends liked that song the best from the album.

The talented SueReu put together a wonderful video of Shine.

Isn’t it fun to hear this song again!!

  1. Clay is a man of so many gifts and talents – I don't think there is one song that is not extremely well done! I love "Shine", too – along with every song he has ever sung! I do not think that is an exaggeration at all!! Just how I feel.

    Sue did another lovely video – haven't heard "Shine" in a while – Thanks to both of you for
    bringing it here!

  2. I actually listened to the whole MOAM album just this past week as well as ATDW. Both excellent albums! I agree with Marlene, he sounds good on every song he has ever sung! Shine is a beautiful example!

    Great video by Sue as always!
