BORN TO SHINE
"Shimmer little one, shimmer little one
shine on, shine on, you were born to shine on.
Shimmer little one, shimmer little one
shine on, shine on, you were born to shine on.
I am your refelction and you are mine.
All of us, reflections of the light divine,
so shimmer little one, shimmer little one
you were born to shine."
I got on the bus today
I was feeling down
Didn't get off, I just knew I had to take a ride.
I looked out the window, yeah, I just looked around
and tried to make sense of all that I was feeling inside
then a strange man sitting right next to me
said, "I can feel what your eyes can see.
Don't you worry brother,
everybody's doin' fine."
His stop came up and he rang the bell.
There was something in his voice I knew so well.
Something in the way his eyes looked into mine
when he whispered,
"It's alright, it's alright, it's alright."
"Shimmer little one, shimmer little one
shine on, shine on, you were born to shine on.
Shimmer little one, shimmer little one
shine on, shine on, you were born to shine on.
I am your refelction and you are mine.
All of us reflections of the light divine,
so shimmer little one, shimmer little one
you were born to shine."
I waved out the window as we drove away.
He never looked back as he vanished into all of the rest.
I looked at the people getting through the day
and something must have changed 'cause somehow everybody seemed blessed.
Sometimes I can tell myself that I'm all alone.
I can tell myself that I'm on my own.
Tell myself to question all the love I receive.
Sometimes I can tell myself that it's all too much.
I can tell myself not to ever trust,
then someone comes along
that I know I just gotta believe
when he whispers,
"It's alright,it's alright, it's alright...
"Shimmer little one, shimmer little one
shine on, shine on, you were born to shine on.
Shimmer little one, shimmer little one
shine on, shine on, you were born to shine on.
I am your refelction and you are mine.
All of us reflections of the light divine,
so shimmer little one, shimmer little one.
You were born to shine."
