Alex Simmons – Intro (Shine) lyrics
This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine,
This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it sh…
Yeah, I’ve been waiting for so long man,
Oh, so long,
We finally here though,
Let’s not get ahead of ourselves,

[Verse 1]
I’ve been sitting back contemplating whether I should just end it all,
Then I looked my mama in the face and it told me I need to keep holding on,
If not for me then for her and my bro cause they counting on me, God’ll keep us strong,
Nigga I’ve been trying hard not to crumble but lately everything been going wrong,
Last few nights crazy, Bar after bar I’ve been drinking,
Called a cab to the crib did some thinking,
Poured a sip and tried to do some escaping, man,
Then I passed out on the floor of the living room,
You can tell that I was wasted,
Then I woke up to my brother staring at me,
And we went and had a conversation,
Told him how I felt,
Thanked him cause I felt like I ain’t have nobody else,
Told him I been trying not to worry he could tell I’ve been hurting,
Said he knew me better than I knew my self,
He said that you a light, let it shine lil bro,
He told me that it’s time to stop the crying lil bro,
Don’t let nobody take you off your grind lil bro,
I know that you going through, we gon be fine lil bro,
Asked him how he could be so sure,
Looked around I ain’t see no cure,
Told him I understand why the world is the way it is,
People fighting with each other, it really don’t make no sense,
Man, I’ll save that for another time,
Shit be really getting heated like a summer vibe,
In a world full of darkness that we live in,
I’m a be a light homie and I’m gonna shine.

[Break - Tupac]
I think everybody shines in different things. I know how to go to that true spot in myself cause I’m there everyday. A lot of people (Black, White, Mexican, young or old, fat or skinny) have a problem being true to they’re self. They have a problem looking in the mirror and looking directly into their own souls.

[Verse 2]
2019, thank God I’m here,
I’m happy that I made it safe,
Cause this time around last year,
Dog I swear I wasn’t in the greatest place,
Lost a lot of friends, lost a lot of fam,
Said they for me but they really ain’t,
I hope ya’ll take a shot for me,
I really hope ya’ll hear me, cause I got some things to say,
People quick to say they down to ride,
Til shit hit the fan, then they switching sides,
I should’ve known cause my mama said it,
And now I regret that we caught different vibes,
When last year happened it was all so fast,
Caught me by a big surprise,
I’m motivated to succeed more then ever,
Cause I’ve been striving for a different life,
I try to shine bright, I been on that,
I try to ask God if I’m on track,
But do you know how it feels to be loyal to a friend, or your mans,
Or some people that ain’t loyal back,
Now I’m tryna take a different route,
I’ve been seeing niggas different now,
I got a lot more to say but I think that I gave ya’ll enough,
So that’s it for now.

[Outro - Imogene]
Life equals people, place and things. And the people make the places and things. In a world full of darkness, we don’t get to see our light. Go inside yourself and see and know that you’re a light. And SHINE!
