Lyrics

Go Getters (Shine a Little Light)

Written By: Daniell Johnston

Oldham came along for the ride
Then he smiled and he said goodnight
Said like a man going to die
I can hear him when i close my eyes

And his killer in the garden roams
Under the trees when the church is closed
Laughing like a man insane
As the wind calls his name

Awake by the rain when you lay to rest
By the bells in the temple by the town hall steps
Nearly asleep but you can't forget that night.

So they gathered in the brooding dark
By the light of the moonlit park
Like the Guns of Navarone
Like a killer with a heart of stone

They were played like a foolish game
A game that only a fool could play
Shamed by an empty fear
As the hour draws near

In exchange for the captain's son
With a shake of the hand, take the money and run
It ain't over 'til the deal is done, so hold on..

And shine a light on me, shine a little light on me
Shine a light on me, shine a little light on me
Like a prayer on the breeze, like a beacon in a rolling sea
Shine a light on me, shine a little light on me

The pieces are moving and the game is in play
Don't show up here with that look on your face
And don't turn around as you're walking away from here

They see you run and they see you hide
Daddy's gonna set your head on fire
into the water and into the night we run

Shine a light on me, shine a little light on me
Shine a light on me, shine a little light on me
Like a prayer on the breeze, like a beacon in a rolling sea
Shine a light on me, shine a little light on me

You feel like you're on your own with the headlights in your eyes
You feel like you walk alone where no one goes anymore
In the coldest hor in the deep of the rolling sea
Shine a light on me, shine a little light on me
