Dread shine your light
So a child may follow
Many have been lost along the way
Until tonight
Turns into tomorrow
Teach them to be careful while at play

There's nothing wrong with having fun
Don't let the system tame you
It's just a part of being young
And even though they're quick to blame you
Picking on you like a plum
Because your dream became true
Now look what they've become
An open sight in plain view
They've already had a run
So meanwhile they try to change you
It's not over til it's done
So please remain the same you

Hey young world (hey young world)
Hey young world (hey young world)
Hey young world
The world is yours

Hey young world (hey young world)
Hey young world (hey young world)
Hey young world
The world is yours

Dread shine your light
So a child may follow
Many have been lost along the way
Until tonight
Turns into tomorrow
Teach them to be careful while at play

You might not think you know enough
Don't let that deter you
It's all apart of growing up
And we're all young enough to learn to
And don't you live life in a rush
The past cannot be returned to
And when you feel like giving up
Remember patience is a virtue
When you fall, try to get up
Have some guts, I'm trying to urge you
Be proud of owning up
The truth will never hurt you

Hey young world (hey young world)
Hey young world (hey young world)
Hey young world
The world is yours

Hey young world (hey young world)
Hey young world (hey young world)
Hey young world
The world is yours

Dread shine your light
So a child may follow
Cause' many have been lost along the way
Until tonight
Turns into tomorrow
Teach them to be careful while at play
So when you're rising start, be wise and smart
Try and make your mark
Don't you hype and floss, and drive too fast
Cause' life's to short
Try to make good times last 'cause time flies past
And if time is money, that means I'm cast
But it don't cost money to joke and laugh
So if you love somebody, hurry up and talk

Hey young world (hey young world)
Hey young world (hey young world)
Hey young world
The world is yours
