Shining Through

Is it bad timing
Are we in over our heads
Can we possibly make it work
With the world at its end
Can we count the seconds
One by one
And feed these memories over time
Can we say everything that needs to be said
While the clock is ticking away

{Chorus}
How can you say we will be together forever
When I'm not so sure
Paint me a picture of the future showing just what we'll do
Will things be different when the world spins quickly by
Times will get hard
But just keep shining through

If you need a reminder of the better days
Then simply look away
Know the path leading you anywhere else
Is leading you astray
Follow me we'll make it through
Sing me a lullaby
With the hope I have in you

How can you say we will be together forever
When I'm not so sure
Paint me a picture of the future showing just what we'll do
Will things be different when the world spins quickly by
Times will get hard
But just keep shining through

And I have faith but never fall too easily
You are a first
Something new, unexpected
Bringing out the best of me
And for once I'll believe in the changes you bring
Give me a chance and I'll make you see
You are everything, everything good about me

How can you say we will be together forever
When I'm not so sure..
Times will get hard

How can you say we will be together forever
When I'm not so sure
Paint me a picture of the future showing just what we'll do
Will things be different when the world spins quickly by
Times will get hard
But just keep shining through

Looking into the future simply isn't that easy
But I have a feeling we could make it..
Just keep trying
Yeah
We'll make it
Shining through

Wow, that was truly beautiful! Especially "Paint me a picture of the future showing just what we'll do"  I can totally see this in a song. This is definitely very passionate writing, and I can tell as a reader, that this is true and meainful, and not just a much of empty words. If there was a favorite button, I click it!
