Shiny Eyes Lyrics

In times of hell, in times of sun,
you journeyed with me, my precious one.
Far stretched the road I found you on.
We walked together arm in arm.

Oh, shiny eyes, bright as the sun.
You were my treasure, my dearest one.
Oh, shiny eyes, right where you stand.
You were my own, I was your man.
Oh, shiny eyes, to my surprise,
you're still my one.

Now lives are shaken, hearts are changed.
You touched them all, you knew their names.
You helped the weak, the poor, the meek.
And selfish treasure, you didn't seek.

Oh, shiny eyes, bright as the sun.
You were my treasure, my dearest one.
Oh, shiny eyes, right where you stand.
You were my own, I was your man.
Oh, shiny eyes, to my surprise,
you're still my one.

And alas, my dear, I miss you.
These thousand miles they burn through my soul.
Hold on, my dear, just one more day.
Your haggard boy is comin' back home...
is comin' back home.

And now in death, I bid farewell.
A song to sing, your story I'll tell.
But I can't bear to see you, dear.
Your shiny eyes no longer here.

Oh, shiny eyes, bright as the stars.
Now lay in death's eternal arms.
Oh, shiny eyes, stare back through me.
Now resting at your father's feet.
Oh, shiny eyes, to my surprise...
oh, shiny eyes, you're still my one.
Oh, shiny eyes, to my surprise,
you're still my one.

Sons of Anarchy Quotes

Something happens at around 92 miles an hour - thunder-headers drown out all sound, engine vibrations travels at a heart's rate, field of vision funnels into the immediate and suddenly you're not on the road, you're in it. A part of it. Traffic, scenery, cops - just cardboard cutouts blowing over as you past. Sometimes I forget the rush of that. That's why I love these long runs. All your problems, all the noise, gone. Nothing else to worry about except what's right in front of you. Maybe that's the lesson for me today, to hold on to these simple moments. Appreciate them a little more - there's not many of them left. I don't ever want that for you. Finding things that make you happy shouldn't be so hard. I know you'll face pain, suffering, hard choices, but you can't let the weight of it choke the joy out of your life. No matter what, you have to find the things that love you. Run to them. There's an old saying, 'That what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger' I don't believe that. I think the things that try to kill you make you angry and sad. Strength comes from the good things - your family, your friends, the satisfaction of hard work. Those are the things that'll keep you whole. Those are the things to hold on to when you're broken.

We don't know who we are until we're connected to someone else. We're just better human beings when with the person we're supposed to be with. I wasn't supposed to leave...I belong here.
