Shine on

Shine like a shooting star
a star that will not fall
Shine a light for everyone
Shine so they can see


a wise man learns from mistakes
a stupid fool only grows heartaches
give a dream for everyone
let them come out into the sun
feel the warmth that burns
until your hallow mind is full
full of freedom, full of peace
empty of sadness
live to overcome grief
feel pure love

once you feel the purity of love
you'll cherrish that feeling
take it everywhere you go
drag your thumb nowhere and back
Love won't be but a blink away
