Clay Aiken – “You Are Gonna Shine”

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 loose

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, Shine.

 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.

Did you listen?

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