Shine Lyrics

They filled my path full of doubt
And wouldn’t hear me out
But still I chased my dreams
They told me to quit
But my heart could not resist
And from the darkness came a light

I will shine on tomorrow
Light the way for all to follow
From the darkness I will shine


Learning from the past I tried
To stare the world in the eyes
Find strength to pull me through
I saw through my tests and trials
A road that ran a thousand miles
At the end was only truth

I will shine on tomorrow
Light the way for all to follow
In the darkness I will shine
I will shine on forever
Take my chance now or never
In the darkness I will shine

I know I can if I believe
And I will choose my destiny
We’ll make the change we want to see
I know we can if we believe
And we will choose our destiny
I know I can if I believe
