"Shine" as written by and Peter F Stuart....
You cut off your toes so you might walk a little more slowly
You cut out your tongue so you couldn't say anything wrong
You held yourself up to the light so you might be forgiven
You held yourself up to the light and you just disappeared

Now you've got a heart
You've got an open window that you can't get through
There's light coming in
You're sitting there wondering why you don't shine

You stayed in all night hoping somebody might miss you
You stayed by the phone while nobody called
You put on a smile so you wouldn't make yourself sadder
You put on a smile now you're holding a grudge

You've got a heart
You've got an open window you can't get through
And there's light coming in
Sitting there, wondering why you don't shine
Why don't you shine?

Maybe if you had a little faith in your own voice
You might hear something
That made sense to you
That makes sense to you

You've waited your whole life
To stand up and count yourself in
But you never feel half as good
Or as bad as you know you should
You put yourself down on the floor
So you won't be a bother
You put yourself down on the floor
And you just turned to wood

You've got a heart
You've got an open window you can't get through
Sitting there wondering why you don't shine
