Birdy – Shine lyrics

Standing here in the rain,
I can see the water soaking through
The holes in your shoes
And turn your mind from the storm,
Picture somewhere safe where it’s soft and warm
I’m waiting here, under dim streetlight
Orange dances around in your empty eyes
And I can see straight into your soul,
Feeling oh-so-lost and out of control

Oh, shine if your heart tells you to,
Then who are you to question it?
Shine if the world gets you down,
Don’t be afraid to wrestle it
Shine, you have your whole life ahead of you,
Come make a mess of it
Shine if your heart tells you to,
Then who are you to question it?
Who are you to question it?

Tired now, feeling scared,
Unfamiliar light floods into the room,
You have woken to hopeful eyes looking out as you wait too long, hiding
Tears of doubt
Not holding back as you realize your abandonment,
Your being cast aside
And I can see straight into your soul,
Feeling oh-so-lost and out of control

Oh, shine if your heart tells you to,
Then who are you to question it?
Shine if the world gets you down,
Don’t be afraid to wrestle it
Shine, you have your whole life ahead of you,
Come make a mess of it
Shine if your heart tells you to,
Then who are you to question it?
Who are you to question it?

Hold my hand when the lights go dark
And you’re feeling scared but no one understands, whoa
Keep your head up, and don’t look down
I’ll guide your steps to keep you on the ground, whoa
Your love is strong, and they just don’t deserve to choose where you belong

Shine if your heart tells you to,
Then who are you to question it?
Shine if the world gets you down,
Don’t be afraid to wrestle it
Shine, you have your whole life ahead of you,
Come make a mess of it
Shine if your heart tells you to,
Then who are you to question it?
Who are you to question it?
