"Shine" as written by and Sam Hopkins....
How long was I sleeping? did you wake me? didn't feel like all that long.
Do I see the morning? no it can't be happen to me.

I've been stuck in the quicksand, more the pavement colours black and white too long
I could black out completely, but I made me, make my way back slowly.

It's my time to shine, do it my way cuz it's my time baby
It's my time to burn, start a fire, be the one and only
I said it
I meant it
I never will forget it
Change never happens by itself
It's my time to burn, my time to shine.
Time to make it for myself.

How long was I buried? couldn't find me, laid to rest, my heart beats on.
Kept track of the symptoms, could've killed me but you will see
I'm not broken, I could be. yeah you would be but my heart is much too strong
Never thought it was easy, but I made me, I made me slowly

It's my time to shine, do it my way cuz it's my time baby
It's my time to burn, start a fire, be the one and only
I said it
I meant it
I never will forget it
Change never happens by itself
It's my time to burn, my time to shine.
Time to make it for myself.

Don't be sad, I know you well. it's just the way it has to be.
I could never stay the same.
It's always high, always low, and almost never in between.
There is no one left to blame.
I can't stay.
I have to change.

It's my time to shine, do it my way. it's my time baby
It's my time to burn, start a fire, be the one and only
I said it
I meant it
I never will forget it
Change never happens by itself
It's my time to burn, my time to shine.
Time to make it for myself.

Make a choice, shut up shut up.
Do it your way, shut up shut up.

    General Commenthow long was i sleeping? did you wake me? didn't feel like all that long.
    do i see the morning? no it can't be happen to me.

    i've been stuck in the quicksand, more the pavement colours black and white too long
    i could black out completely, but i made me, make my way back slowly.

    it's my time to shine, do it my way cuz it's my time baby
    it's my time to burn, start a fire, be the one and only
    i said it
    i meant it
    i never will forget it
    change never happens by itself
    it's my time to burn, my time to shine.
    time to make it for myself.

    how long was i buried? couldn't find me, laid to rest, my heart beats on.
    kept track of the symptoms, could've killed me but you will see
    i'm not broken, i could be. yeah you would be but my heart is much too strong
    never thought it was easy, but i made me, i made me slowly....

    it's my time to shine, do it my way cuz it's my time baby
    it's my time to burn, start a fire, be the one and only
    i said it
    i meant it
    i never will forget it
    change never happens by itself
    it's my time to burn, my time to shine.
    time to make it for myself.

    don't be sad, i know you well. it's just the way it has to be.
    i could never stay the same.
    it's always high, always low, and almost never in between.
    there is no one left to blame.
    i can't stay.
    i have to change.

    it's my time to shine, do it my way. it's my time baby
    it's my time to burn, start a fire, be the one and only
    i said it
    i meant it
    i never will forget it
    change never happens by itself
    it's my time to burn, my time to shine.
    time to make it for myself.

    make a choice, shut up shut up.
    do it your way, shut up shut up.
