When you wish upon a star
Dreams will take you very far, yeah
But when you wish upon a dream
Life ain't always what it seems, oh yeah
What'd you see, on nights so clear
In the sky, so very dear, yeah

You're a shining star
No matter who you are
Shining bright to see
What you could truly be
(What you could truly be)

Shining star come into view
To shine its watchful light on you, yeah
Give you strength to carry on, yeah
Girl, make your body big and strong, yeah

Born a man-child of the sun, yeah
Yeah, saw my work had just begun
Yeah, Found I had to stand alone, yeah
Well bless it now I've got my own, oh yeah

So if you find yourself in need
Why dontcha listen to these worlds of heed
Be a giant, or grain of sand
Words of wisdom - "Yes, I can"

You're a shining star
No matter who you are
Shining bright to see
What you can truly be
[Repeat 3x]

Shining star, for you to see
What your life can truly be
[Repeat 3x]

    My InterpretationThis is just my interpretation of this song, it is most likely wrong. But, this is what these lyrics have meant, to me.

    Shining star come into view (Let God into your life.)
    To shine its watchful light on you, yeah (Allow His grace to be showered over you.)
    Give you strength to carry on, yeah (The grace of the Holy Spirit will give you strength when you feel like you can't go on.)

    Born a man-child of the sun (Born of the Son of God. We are given new life through Christ.)

    I love inspirational funk songs!
