They will try to make you feel
That you're not good enough
You feel so incomplete
Don't let them change you
Show this whole world that you were made to

[Chorus]
Shine
They can't shut out your light
No matter how hard they try
They try but they never can win
'Cause they can't stop what's inside
They'll try to take you
Try to break you down
Remember you were born to shine

Don't let them make you think (don't make  you think)
That you're not pretty enough no no no no
You're beauty runs so deep
So deep inside you you know that's the reason why you

[Chorus]

There's a fire inside of you
That they can never ever understand
Take my light and burn strong and bright cause you will

Shine
They can't shut out your light
No matter how hard they try
They try (oh they try) but they never can win
'Cause they can't stop what's inside

They'll try to take you
Try to break you down
Remember you were born to shine [Repeat: x 3]

You're born to shine [Repeat until fade]
