This is one of the oldest songs on the album, written way back in 1996 when I was 19 - recovering from mental health issues. It's about how things shine through, eventually. It's from the same period as "Tip of the Iceberg", and it's great to finally get these recorded and released.


I can tell by the way that you look at me
There's a lot more to you than I can see.
There's something about you that makes you free,
And it shows.

It's a while since I've known what a smile can do,
So long since I've seen what I've found in you.
Whatever's inside is just bound to shine through,
Because it shows.

Maybe everything is black or white,
Sometimes I can't see what's wrong or right;
And every day it seems I'm losing sight
Of this road I'm travelling on.

As the time goes by I begin to explain
I recognise your face but I don't know your name.
The currents of change have proved you're not to blame,
and it shows.

As I hear all the words that you have to say,
I see why the fear and doubt have gone away.
I know now the love I've found is here to stay
Because it shows.

Maybe this is no coincidence
Sometimes I can't find my common sense,
And there's never time to sit on the fence -
It's this road I'm travelling on.

Maybe there is no way to hide,
And keep all the secrets locked up inside;
And if you live depending on your pride,
Believe me, it shows.
