I've been down on my luck,
I've been shadowed with trouble and sorrow.
But I ain't givin' up'
'Cause I know there is always tomorrow.
There are no garantees,
Life is always a hit or a miss.
But I truly believe
I won't always be feelin' like this.
I'm goona shine like the sun
When these clouds roll away from my door.
When it's said and done
I won't be at your mercy no more.
I will prove my own worth,
Heal the damage and hurt that's been done.
And when the cryin's all done,
Well, I'm gonna shine like the sun.
I've been thinkin' here lately
What all I can do to improve.
Though I've suffered greatly,
I know just what I have to do.
I have move forward,
Cut losses, break loose and move on.
And I have to swim shoreward
Lest I should drown out here alone.
I'm gonna shine like the sun
When these clouds roll away from my door.
I won't crawl I can run
I'll be at no ones mercy no more.
I'll be swinging on sunbeams
So proud that I finally won.
And when the losin's all done
Well, I'm gonna shine like the sun.
I'm gonna shine, I'm gonna shine.
I'm gonna shine like the sun
When these clouds roll away from my door.
And when it's all said and done
I won't be at your mercy no more.
I'll be off chasin' rainbows,
Rejoicin' and havin' my fun.
And when the cryin's all done,
Well, I'm gonna shine like the sun.
When the cryin's all done,
When the tryin's all done,
When the lyin's all done
There'll be nothin' but sun.
Well, I'm gonna shine like the sun.
Shine like the sun, shine like the sun.
