Time for you to take a breath and look around,
Time for you to shout about the voice you’ve found.
Building from within you is a brand new sound.
Only pick you up so they can put you down.
Summer comes around when the seasons change
Just like people, now it feels so strange.
Just another marriage that they can’t arrange
So don’t be ashamed.

Shareena, you’ve got to know,
Don’t be blaming yourself no more.
Don’t you know that your heart is pure?
And you know he’s worth fighting for.
Shareena don’t you know
That you can’t replay this act
Once it has faded to black.

Time up! Act now,
You have to somehow stand up,
Shout loud because family should be proud
Of you whatever you choose or lose your love forever.

Shareena you are who you are.

Wage the war that went before the last two years,
Can’t just keep on smiling through the dried-up tears,
Face the only part of you that you can’t pierce,
Caught between your culture and a life that’s here.
Looking like you’ve found a place where you belong,
Always with apologies upon your tongue.
If he makes you happy how can it be wrong?
He’s waited this long.

Shareena, you’ve got to know,
Don’t be blaming yourself no more.
Don’t you know that your heart is pure?
And you know he’s worth fighting for.
Shareena don’t you know
That you can’t replay this act
Once it has faded to black.

Time up! Act now,
You have to somehow stand up,
Shout loud because family should be proud
Of you whatever you choose or lose your love forever.

Shareena you are who you are.
Everything you can be,
A star in front of me,
That’s all they need to see.

Time up! Act now,
You have to somehow stand up,
Shout loud because family should be proud
Of you whatever you choose or lose your love forever.
Keep your head together through the stormy weather.
The sun will come through.

Shareena, you’ve got to know,
Don’t be blaming yourself no more.
Don’t you know that your heart is pure?
And you know he’s worth fighting for.
Shareena don’t you know
That you can’t replay this act
Once it all fades into black.
You can never get it back.

Time for you to take a breath and look around,
Time for you to shout about the voice you’ve found.
Building from within you is a brand new sound.
Only pick you up so they can put you down.
Summer comes around when the seasons change
Just like people, now it feels so strange.
Just another marriage that they can’t arrange
Just another daughter has to live estranged.
Finally its time for you to make that choice,
Hearing the sincerity that’s in my voice
Telling you to do whatever you decide,
Girl you are so beautiful, I’m by your side.
This was always more than just a lost romance,
Don’t forget that this could be your final chance.

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song, it's really apparant. Seems to me like a message of hope to young women who feel trapped by their culture into not following their heart, and instead being pressured into such things as arranged marraiges.

    I don't think it is criticising arranged marraiges themselves, because for some people they really work, but rather it's saying that sometimes it's just not appropriate, especially when someone falls in love with someone else.

    It's just a message to say 'stand up, shout loud', and not to allow yourself to lose something wonderful because of something you don't agree with. This is why i love SB6 so much!!
