63. Shine Your Light- Robbie Robertson

From the end of Ladder 49:

*"It's never an easy thing, saying goodbye to a brother firefighter, it's not. And this time, particularly is difficult for me because I watched Jack grow into a, well, into one of the finest firefighters I've ever known. He joined this department because he wanted to help people, who knows how many homes are still standing because Jack was there or how many lives were spared. He gave his life for that cause. We'll never forget you Jack. And we're better for having known you. But I make you this one promise, tomorrow when that bell rings, we will be back on the truck, because you were the bravest of the brave. People are always asking me, how is it that firefighters run into a burning building when everyone else is running out? Well, Jack, you answered that question by saving another man's life. Your courage is the answer. And today we will be as brave as you, by not mourning you, but by celebrating your life. So I'd like everyone to stand up and celebrate the life of Jack Morrison." -John Travolta as Chief Kennedy*

 

The cry of the city like a siren's song
Wailing over the rooftops the whole night long
Saw a shooting star like a diamond in the sky
Must be someone's soul passing by

These are the streets where we used to run, where your Papa's from
These are the days where you become what you become
These are the streets where the story's told
The truth unfolds, darkness settles in

Shine your light down on me
Lift me up so I can see
Shine your light when you're gone
Give me the strength to carry on, carry on

Don't wanna be a hero, just an everyday man
Trying to do the job the very best he can
But now it's like living on borrowed time
Out on the rim, over the line

Always tempting fate like a game of chance
Never wanna stick around to the very last dance
Sometimes I stumble and take a hard fall
Loose hold your grip off the wall

Shine your light down on me
Lift me up so I can see
Shine your light when you're gone
Give me the strength to carry on, carry on

I thought I saw him walking by the side of the road
Maybe trying to find his way home
He's here but not here, he's gone but not gone
Just hope he knows if I get lost

Shine your light down on me
Lift me up so I can see, yeah
Shine your light when you're gone
Give me the strength to carry on, carry on

Shine your light down on me, down on me
Shine your light when you're gone
To carry on, to carry on
Hey oh oh
