I knew the sun was fading And I knew the reason why Now time will have it raining A river from my eyes The gods have come and stolen A large chunk of my life And I still feel I'm holding My own red stabbing knife Inside the voice is saying It's all okay for now But there's no use in playing By heart will not allow I hope you're someplace better Anywhere more than this I'll keep up with the weather And you'll be surely missed So paint my sky a dark shade And draw the curtains back May peace lie where you're laid And deep love never lack.
George you shine so brightly in the sky, is that a tear that's forming in my eye? You were one of the wonderful ones Mystic and brilliant and light like the sun The youngest one, the Dark Horse they say I will never forget. I can never repay What you've given me on this merry-go-ride What is my life without you by my side? I look off, and in the distance, I swear I saw John and George, dancing light as the air, Trying not to despair as we let you go Remembering how it was all those years ago... Shine On, Georgie
